What impressed you positively?

"Clinical experience, how early it starts, and the sheer magnitude they receive. The curriculum is a bit shifted so that more time can be spent doing electives, research, or even just time off during the third and fourth years. Students were very honest and seemed very happy with their decisions. Hospitals we toured through were busy and all very impressive." Report Response
