"#1-THE PEOPLE! :) Seriously, everyone was SO kind...the place felt very welcoming and 'homey' #2-68% of graduates go into specialty areas.

KCUMB gives you the opportunity to explore other options in the healthcare field for DO's :)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Met in conference room with applicants (breakfast provided). Chat about KCUMB and explanation about osteopathic medicine. Met with KCUMB students. Q & A session and a tour of the school. Lunch with students(tacos...they were delicious, but bad bad bad before an interview!!!). Then we were fitted for a white coat and interviewed. You were free to go afterwards.
