What impressed you positively?

"The school was absolutely great! The anatomy lab was awesome, only 2 students to a body compared to 4 or more at most other schools. The simulators were so cool!!! I loved everything about this school, the students all seemed to love it and were all there to help each other whereas some other schools students sabotage each other to make themselves look better. Residency match is over 80% for students' first choice residency first time around, and about 60-70% for their top location choice as well. I was scared about some things I had read about residency with USUHS students that they can essentially be told which specialty to be placed in but this is not the case." Report Response
