What impressed you positively?

"The facilities are really nice and the hospital is very new. there are no microscopes in the histolab and slides are entirely viewable and modifiable on computer. The hospital is right next door and entirely paperless. The POM program is really interesting and the ''tracks'' programs seems like a good opportunity. Students are in lecture 3 days a week the other two days focused around the practice of medicine program and time spent with a clinical preceptor. It seems very noncompetitive and students truly seem happy and well rounded. Lots of opportunities for international medicine. Truly exceeded my expectations" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall I was pleasantly surprised with how nice the school was. The deans and students alike are very laid back and approachable and the POM program really seems to foster the closeknit environment among the students. Everyone seems helpful and dedicated to seeing everyone succeed. good opportunities to work in urban medicine, public health or global health. As one of the deans said though, if you are interested in rural medicine this isnt the place for you." Report Response
