What impressed you positively?

"The students have a lot of different opportunities in the community since they're the only medical students in the West Palm area. The school has a really nice simulation center, which you can start using as a second year. Everyone was really friendly. Also, I liked how each student had their own little cubicle with computer. The new curriculum sounds interesting (more PBL)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"In the morning we had coffee/donuts and a few students talked with us. Then there was a presentation. Then interviews. Then the tour. The tour guide was really enthusiastic, as were many of the students we encountered. We got to sit in on a class for a few minutes, and then went to the anatomy lab. The anatomy lab was nice, and since the class size is so small, there are only 2 students per cadaver. Then we went to the simulation center, which was really cool. We had lunch at Boca Raton Community Hospital with a couple of 2nd years, and then we took a tour. Then we went back, had a final talk, and filled out evaluations. Overall I was pleasantly surprised with the school. " Report Response
