What impressed you positively?

"You can't argue with the board passing rates! It is warmer than the midwest and east coast during the winter. the facilities are nice. their is nice on-campus housing. they don't push for primary care! they encourage taking both sets of boards and don't care if you do an MD residency." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"No gym. No computers needed, which I like because I'm not a computer geek, but it was wierd because every other school makes you get a laptop. I didn't really like the curriculum setup but hey who am I to say anything their numbers speak for themselves. the cadaver lab smelled bad. It was not very nice at all. It was the worse one and the most crowded out of any school I went to. The heat would suck in the summer." Report Response

"I wa expecting AZCOM to be the holy grail of DO schools but it really is just like all the others except it is in Arizona and has high board scores." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was hot but pleasant. Everyone was great. The interview was cake and helpful. I didn't like interviewing first then taking a tour because I had lots of questions to ask instead of getting the answers to them throughout the day, but what could I do. The traffic reminded me of home (california). It really was a great school. I wonder though why the cost of living is approaching California prices? It is ugly there and hotter than hell! For me it is beteween Western University and Midwestern University." Report Response
