What impressed you positively?

"I was greatly impressed by the collaborative atmosphere between the students I encountered. They were all very friendly and emphasized the fact that everyone strives to help everyone else via study groups, sharing of tips and study materials, passing down of materials from one class to the next etc. I think this was enhanced by the house system that they have in place, as well as the fact that they really promote interprofessional collaboration. I was very pleased with the atmosphere over all! Also love the P/F!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The facilities are quite outdated in areas (but this would not affect my decision to attend if accepted, and there were other areas that were brand new). I got the sense that some students are unhappy with having so many different rotation sites instead of one large home affiliated hospital (although there can be advantages to this to). They seemed to express that they missed being around their classmates everyday and that 3rd and 4th year are a lot more independent." Report Response

"More about the MMI, but the confidentiality agreement kind of prevents that. (Sorry I can't share more about the MMI)" Report Response

"Not my first choice, but I would definitely attend and I think I would definitely be happy here if I didn't have any offers higher on my list." Report Response
