What impressed you positively?

"the students were very enthusiastic, the facilities what I saw of them at least were nice (they are really strict about following the privacy laws so we did not tour the hospitals or anatomy labs). The orientation/information sessions were excellent but would have been better before the interview (the session was after mine)" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"you can do a 5th year for free and essentially get a free joint degree. they have an excellent anatomy MS and an MPH. There is a thesis requirement and my interviewer mentioned a trend toward phasing out lectures and relying almost exclusively on PBL. That makes me wonder what the differences between the Lerner College of Medicine and the University Program will be." Report Response
