What impressed you positively?

"Columbia University and the affiliated Ivy League schools back this program up 300% and give you awesome exposure to great residencey programs at all of the top eastern US hospitals affiliated with schools like Dartmouth, Harvard, Brown, etc. I was also pleased to hear that BGU graduates also can enter residency programs at these hospitals without entering the match system because you are considered an IMG, However, you do not need to take any special IMG testing to work in the US. So if the program you do rotations at likes you, it is possible to lock down an awesome residency program without having to enter the rat race. Also the class size is really small (25-38 people) so you get a lot of one on one time and the class acts like a family away from home." Report Response
