What impressed you positively?

"Everything about the school left a positive impression. Miami is a truly international city, and the patient exposure the students were getting here was unmatched. I talked to several M2s who had been DIRECTLY involved in patient care (one had conducted a live birth). People from all over the south (think Caribbean islands) are flown into Jackson, the second busiest hospital in the nation. You know that rare disease 0.005% of the population has? How about those tropical diseases? Miami sees it all the time. The curriculum was well set up (integrated blocks, and later organ systems), the Department of Community Service was active, and students had a plethora of extracurriculars to choose from, including mission trips, research, etc. Miami is my #1."
