What are your general comments?

"Outstanding. They have a new building where most of the first and second year courses take place. We toured the anatomy lab while the students were tearing apart the cadavors, which was totally awesome. All of the students were very happy, laid back, and didn't seem to be too many ''gunners.'' There are two hospitals on the campus (VA and regional). The food at the hospital is very good now. Great options for primary care and rural medicine, but really great program for anyone wanting to practice medicine." Report Response
