"Faculty are extremely supportive, community is huge here, OMM department is tough, but is world class, personable, knowledgeable professors that genuinely do care about your success and will help you whenever needed, close proximity to Atlanta/very nice area, great peer tutoring/TA/academic support programs, lots of options for clinical sites, lots of established MD and DO connections in a vast majority of medical specialties in the primary care skills dpt, a bunch of ways to get involved, extremely diverse classes, plenty of diverse research opportunities, very tough but doable curriculum with fair exams that tend to be quite boards-relevant, lots of real-life simulation opportunities 1-2nd year, faculty advising programs, great library, plenty of places to study/never full" Report Response

What do you like least?

"80% Mandatory classes even sometimes around exam time for things like Primary care skills, epidemiology/biostat/Medical law/public health, interprofessional classes, guest lectures etc., no completely dedicated boards studying time, sometimes condescending administration (who we just tend to avoid/ignore) who doesn’t always listen to listen to our problems like the mandatory class policy, curriculum starting from 1st year is very intense from 8-4 or 5 every day, not really allowing for easy adjustment as needed, guest lecturers tend to be great physicians but not the best teachers, OMM courses are tough, with quizzes every week, tough board-style exams, and strict rubrics for practicals, faculty will push for you to take the USMLE but administration will tell you otherwise she to merger" Report Response

Any other information you want to share?

"It’s a great school, but even though it’s been here for 8 years it’s still got some kinks to work out to make it even better. Overall I love it, and made the best out of my experience here. It’s getting harder and harder to get into, and they’re really starting to push for increasing board scores, so they’re pushing for a “changed atmosphere” on campus by making classes pretty much mandatory and interactive, and more clinically based. 2nd year here is no joke, and I mean it’s extremely integrative in systems-based physiology/pathophysiology and clinical skills become a large part of your schedule, so there’s a lot to worry about, but I think that’s the case everywhere. 1st year was an adjustment and got easier, until neuro hit and things got real. Should be interesting how the merger works out, since lots of people entering are pursuing more competitive specialties." Report Response
