What impressed you positively?

"Just about everything. From the students to the facilities, all were really top notch." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The school started the interview day with a Financial Aid presentation! It is not cheap to go here, averaging ~$50,000/year. If cost is an issue for you, be prepared for the a little bit of a shock." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The clinical training is very unique here at AZCOM. In addition to traditional training at hospitals, you deal at least 50% of your rotations with a clinical preceptor in a more outpatient based setting. This is a chance to get a lot of one-on-one training. You also have a test every Monday, which can be a bit tedious." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"AZCOM brings in a fairly large group to interview each time(~15-20 interviewees). You are divided into two groups and some of your interview first, while others tour the campus, and then you switch. The interview is with a panel of people(a professor, a DO and a student) and is open file. Overall, this is a great school. The facilities are top-notch and brand new, including a large OMM lab. The students are also very nice and supportive of one another. Location is one thing to consider about this school. It is HOT, and in an area of Phoenix that is under development. You have to drive a few minutes just to get to some places to eat. Overall, this would be a great place to train to become a DO." Report Response
