What do you like most?

"The school itself is very supportive of their students. Once you are in, they seem to make sure you get through. This includes helping students through life events that were unpredictable/ unavoidable while allowing them to do what is best for themselves and their families. This school is extremely family friendly and students are really supportive of each other. There is no competition between students in pre-clinical or clinical settings so it is a great learning environment." | Report Response

"Kirksville was a great place to focus on studying and a great place for students with a family." | Report Response

"Very student and patient oriented" | Report Response

What do you like least?

"The quality of the rotation sites is very hit or miss. Being a rural based school has its negatives when it comes to quality sites that have specialties available. I also dislike that we have no vacation time for interview season 4th year." | Report Response

"There were few opportunities in Kirksville to get involved in specialty-specific activities since there are limited specialty departments there. The only residencies there are Internal medicine, family medicine, anesthesiology, general surgery, and dermatology. If you are interested in anything else you will be handicapped by the absence of research, residents, and program directors in your specialty of interest." | Report Response

"Fewer resources than some allopathic schools" | Report Response

What are rotations like?

"Our rotations are variable depending on the location you choose. Many are placed in rural environments so the experience can change from year to year. There is several new sites that have been added that seem to have a good amount of success but only time will tell." | Report Response

"Rotations can be done in various locations including sites in Missouri, Illinois, Ohio, Michigan, Arizona, and Utah. Most people end up where they want to be. The third-year schedule was completely set up. The fourth year was mostly set up by me, which wasn't so bad." | Report Response

How do students from this program do in the Match?

"Most people who enter the match seem to get in their top 3 choices. There is a large amount of primary care every year but there has been multiple ortho surg, derm, and gen surg matches every year." | Report Response

"Pretty good among DO schools. They have match data on their website." | Report Response

Any other information you want to share?

"Our school has been really supportive through the COVID-19 pandemic. We started receiving credit immediately from being pulled from rotations. I do think the electives have major deficits but they were also thrown together last minute so I will cut them some slack." | Report Response
