The Basics

What was the zip code of your residence in high school?


Overall, how satisfied are you with this program?

10 out of 10

What do you like most?

"Physician-scientist training (MD << Cleveland Clinic < MD/PhD) for those interested in more that straight MD training, and less than MD/PhD. VERY small class size: It's like family. Except your family has some of the brightest students from around the world and every walk of life - which can be very humbling. World-class hospital faculty, access to some really unique patient populations (not so much zebras - more like unicorns). No grades, class-rankings, lectures, exams, or AOA. We have the rights and privileges of all Case Western Reserve students, and additional perks similar to residents at Cleveland Clinic. And chill." Report Response

What do you like least?

"The very small group-learning sessions (often 8 students, but sometimes as low as 4 or 6) means that each student must show up, be prepared, and participate / share the learning workload. Students who cannot or chose not to participate and those not truly interested in a research career can be disruptive to the learning environment. Small class size and high-achieving classmates tend to invite close scrutiny of your performance and can cause anxiety - although this is partially mitigated by the (true) lack of exams, grades, rankings, AOA."
