How did you prepare for the interview?

"Reviewed my application and Colorado state laws on subjects that may be controversial in case they came up (abortion, medical marijuana, ACA, PAS). I talked about electronic health records in one of my answers and it helped to review some of the specifics on HIPAA and how physicians and patients felt about changes to the EHR system." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The facilities are all very nice and brand new. Also, they talked about this computer program that the students have access to for learning anatomy that looked pretty great. The campus was great too. I like the idea of everything being in one spot for the most part." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"During my student interview he mentioned that the University is very caring and supportive but he said it is a place where you have to push yourself to succeed. No one is going to show you exactly what to do to get the residency you want. Not that this is a negative in my opinion, but it was something I thought should be made more clear to applicants."

"They let you leave things in a secure room so you can bring in paper to write on or your luggage." Report Response
