What impressed you positively?

"The program's organization is ideal for me because emphasizes early patient contact, which I think is very important (and obviously works out well considering that 100% of their students pass the clinical skills portion of step 2 the first time). I also really liked the small size of the class. The Dean of Students was really great and seems to know the majority of the students on a personal level. The schools just seems to be very close knit." Report Response
