What are your general comments?

"If you are serious about patient centered care, then Mizzou is an excellent school for you. If you are more into the research aspect (although Mizzou med school is good for that too) or are not into working with others, I would suggest applying somewhere else. I heard serveral times that they try to select students who jive well with working with others for PBL, are open and friendly, etc." Report Response
