What are your general comments?

"The interview day is typical: presentations, tour, interviews, wrap-up. I didn't get a good sense that you get exposure to clinical skills, aside from physicals and histories. The curriculum is very innovative, but I felt there was something lacking. If I were to pay $26,000 a year for med school, I would want a little more than a ten week anatomy survey, 2 hours of PBL M/W/F, OMM lab once a week (Thursday) and clinical exam class (Tuesday). Don't get me wrong, I thought the PBL was a great way to learn, but I just didn't feel as comfortable with the curriculum as at other schools. If you are comfortable with independent study as your primary means of learning, then LECOM-Bradenton is right for you. " Report Response
