What impressed you positively?

"The curriculum is going to be really innovative and hi-tech. Being embedded in a CHC the 2-4 years will give students very solid clinical exposure. Arizona is beautiful and most of the CHC sites are in cool places to live (Seattle, New York, Hawaii, etc.) This school plans on only using those educaiton models that have been proven to be effective. The school will truly provide a unique learning experience not found at any other school in this country." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"They still have a lot of planning to do, so its hard to get exact answers about certain things on interview day. The anatomy lab is pretty small. The area is going to be developed to include a lot of stuff, but it won't be ready for next years class. Conceptually, the school sounds great, but it reamins to be seen how it pans out in reality." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Arizona is sunny and beautiful. I learned a lot more about what the CHC's (community health centers) were. It gave me more confidence about the program. Faculty to student ratio will be 1:10 at CHC. Some lectures will be podcast from main campus." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The day was really organized (no sitting around doing nothing time). The lunch was really good and we ate outside in the sun. The faculty member sitting with us answered a lot of questions well. The three part interview allowed you to speak with three different interviewers in three different settings, so you had the opportunity to show more than one side of yourself. The three parts are: 1) The regular two person med. school interview, 2) A file review to discuss problem areas in transcript/MCAT, 3) A group exercise." Report Response
