What impressed you positively?

"UConn has a very well integrated pre-clinical curriculum. You get early patient contact, learn to perform physical exams and history taking right away, and work with one physician for three years helping take care of his patients. also, since they have a small class, there's definitely a strong sense of family."

What are your general comments?

"This is their first time with Saturday interviews. Personally, I thought it was a great idea. The day started off with an orientation where everybody introduced himself/herself to the group (probably the most intimidating part of the day). Dean Sanford talked about the school's curriculum and other aspects in detail. Dr. Sanford is an extremely nice guy, and I was very appreciative of how comfortable he made us feel throughout the day. My interviews were fairly laid back and stress-free. Then we toured the school a little bit. The anatomy labs have good ventilation (haha) and doesn't feel damped. I really liked the fact that UConn stretches out the anatomy course for a year so that basic science courses correlate to dissections in the anatomy lab. They have plans to renovate the facilities soon, and already have some neat gadgets/resources for the students. All in all, the day was great!" Report Response
