What impressed you positively?

"despite the facilities being older than most I've seen, Miami did seem to provide the best clerkship experience (easily beats that of Harvard's or any other school I can think of). It's locale not only makes anyone's decision to live in South Beach convenient, but it being the only major hospital in the South East and Caribbean region really puts itself in an ideal set up for your clinical experience. The strength of all its residency programs reflect this (Jackson Memorial is a well respected institution) Really hands on clinical experience and the most diverse patient population I have seen thus far. 3rd and 4th year students reaffirmed this. Societies really integrate upper and lower classmates (not segregated like almost all schools)" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"As the negative post alluded to before, I really think the first two years need a complete overall. Students seem left to learn the basic sciences on their own. Anatomy is poorly taught (1/3 of the students failed this exam), while some of the students didn't seem terribly mature. The step 1 is below average (210 if i recall correctly). I really think they could hold off on the clinical until after xmas break your first year. Ranking amongst your classmates throughout the entirety of your 4 years wasn't too appealing either. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Your society is more than a mere social network. 3rd and 4th years are the ones teaching your basic clinical skills. You take exams with your society in the individual lab rooms, not as collective class. The students are huge on ping pong." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I'd be content with Miami. It's recent and very sizable endowments have put the school in a very good financial position. It will probably jump quickly in ratings with this new found wealth, which has enabled the school to attract prominent faculty from Duke and Hopkins. School did raise some flags as I mentioned before. Interviewer was pleasant, but very apathetic (making it very difficult to read or gauge how I was doing)" Report Response
