What are your general comments?

"Very casual and laid-back. Children's "Hospital" is actually just one floor in the main hospital. Definitely a pleasant interviewing experience, but depends completely upon your interviewer. To get a good clinical experience during the 1st and 2nd years, the student must make the effort to contact physicians to shadow them." Report Response
