How did you prepare for the interview?

What impressed you positively?

"The school's team-based learning approach is ahead of the curve: systems-based curriculum was specifically designed in preparation for changes to the national board exams. Students, staff seemed very enthusiastic about their program and their passion to serve the under-served is very well portrayed by the upper administration. Lack of specialties means D3 and D4 students will get the tougher cases." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I'm a bit concerned about the volume of clinical experience available: current students said that many in the first graduating class were scrambling to find crown cases; however, this seems to be subsiding and ECU now has a waiting list of patients (according to current students)."
