What are your general comments?

"The school is very new and so are all the facilities. It does not seem like they have a ton of decent faculty on their staff, as the same few professors run a lot of the school's programs and conduct all the interviews. The research facilities are minimal, and it is clear that this is not their focus. Focus is overwhelmingly on primary care, and definitely on churning out as many doctors for the state of Florida, regardless of the quality of doctor generated, in order to address Florida's growing physician shortage."
