What impressed you positively?

"The facilities were not bad and the campus really isn't too far out of the city. The faculty/dean excited about their curriculum, but I wonder if it will have the desired effect or prove to lead to high board scores. What they are doing is a more PBL style learning, and years 2-4 will be spent in community health centers around the nation." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The curriculum seems a little sketchy, I hope it works out for everyone. The community health center (CHC) in Phoenix is only for Native American students or those who can demonstrate a strong desire to work with the Native American population. For a campus that is based in Phoenix, they should have had some other CHCs in the Phoenix area and sought to cover a wider demographic. A Native American focus in Phoenix is a very narrow focus. There is a diverse group of underserved in Arizona and a diverse group of students with varying interests. I also didn't like that the questions were all set questions that everyone is asked even though I knew them ahead of time from SDN. The interviewer was not involved at all other than to ask the questions and write down answers. He just looked at his paper and wrote things down. Hopefully this school does not bring down the reputation of ATSU-KCOM, which is an awesome school." Report Response
