"Everyone is very friendly. They really focus on ensuring that 1st year students get clinical experience as early as possible. They have patient simulators (more to come once the new technology builiding construction is done). They also have you work with community memebers to practice your history taking skills and so forth. They are really focused there on making sure you succeed and get a great education. Also, 3rd/4th year rotations can be done outside of MO." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was very nervous for my 1st interview because this was the first school I was interviewing at. My first interviewer was kind of intimidating. Right away asked Why D.O.? and Why KCOM? That was about 10min after my responses and all and then he said he had nothing more for me and wanted to know what questions I had for him. I really didn't feel like I got to reveal much about myself. the other two interviews were great! Very relaxing and enjoyable. Dr. Roof was amazing and really wnated to get to know who I was and about my background." Report Response
