What impressed you positively?

"the students we interacted with really did seem to like the clinical training. they were m4s so they kept saying how they were given so much responsibility. some of their students also said how 'other' med schools in the chicago area don't accept public aid patients so they don't get to see patients. Also, with the patient population the patients actually want you to work on them-- wheareas in other private hospitals... patients sometimes won't let med students touch em." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"it was great. i really enjoyed it and i think i'd be happy there. it's tough no matter where you go and you'll have to learn alot of stuff no matter what, so it's the clinical training that separates uic-- the anatomy professor is apparently very good as well." Report Response
