What impressed you positively?

"The clinical facilities (Hermann)are absolutely amazing...there are so many resources that UT-Houston draws on, virtually the entire medical center is available for your education. Also, much of the basic training area was renovated since the flood in 2001, so they are all new and clean." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I wasn't able to tour every place, esp MD Anderson and the Texas Heart Institute, although that may be because the place is so big." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the Texas Medical Center hasn't had a day without construction somewhere on it's grounds for nearly 20 years." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was impressed with what I saw at UT-Houston. The atmosphere among the students seems very laid back and friendly, yet they have the world's largest medical center around them. The Hospital tour was nice, we saw an actual helicopter landing and a guy get rushed to the ER. The interviews were conversational and low-pressure, and if you have good credentials they will immediately shift to selling their school to you. My first interviewer was a community relations guy who gave me a book he wrote detailing the history of UT-H and the Medical Center...not a bad read if you're bored. The second was friendly and encouraging, though a bit more rushed for time. Overall, UT-H is one of my top choices now." Report Response
