What do you like most?

"What I like most about this school is my classmates. The students in our class are great people, and great to work with. I also LIKED the clinical education that this school had as it was one of the most attractive attributes of this school. The previous sentence was intentionally in past tense as there is a new clinical director that is single handedly ruining this school and everything great about it." Report Response

What do you like least?

"Barry University has recently hired a new clinical director Dr. Shanika Hill. Doctor Hill is a Barry Graduate and was at the top of her class, given this I believe that the administration felt that she was qualified for the job as clinical director. However, they couldn't have been further from the truth. Dr. Hill has created a very large and obstructive barrier between the students and the faculty which has been detrimental to both the success of students and the school. It is clearly evident that she has no real leadership experience as should be required for this job. Dr. Hill has zero willingness to work with the student to come to a mutual agreement to the new unnecessarily stringent policies that she has implemented. Her end all be all is "there is a new sheriff in town". As medical students we are all adults, some have worked full time jobs before medical school, some have served our country in the military, yet when you interact with Dr. Hill you will always be inferior to her and she WILL remind you of that. For example, when the first few students were at her clinic she made it abundantly clear that they will not be referred to as "student doctors" in her clinic they are just students. Yet, every other clinical faculty member encourages the students to take pride in their work thus far and introduce themselves as "Student Doctor Smith" including the Dean. You have to ask your self the question "is this someone who we want as our clinical director?"" Report Response
