What impressed you positively?

"I absolutely loved this school!! The curriculum is amazing in how it brings together the biology of disease and the social and behavioral contexts of medicine. The research opportunities it offers are essentially endless. Students have the opportunity to do their clinical training at all four of the main Cleveland medical centers (Case University Hospital, Cleveland Clinic, Metrohealth, VA) during their time as medical students. Case offers great opportunities to help provide medical care to underserved people both in Cleveland and throughout the world. Finally, I felt that the students and faculty here are really warm, friendly, and respectful, and that students are more interested in helping each other out than competing with each other. This creates an environment that I would love to be immersed in during medical school." Report Response
