The Basics

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

06791

Overall, how satisfied are you with this program?

8 out of 10

What do you like most?

"Immersion into the clinic with emphasis on history and physical exam early on. Integration of anatamoge, radiology and butterfly ultrasound devices in first year of cadaveric anatomy class. Strong match list. Affiliated with The Jackson Laboratories for Genomic Medicine where there are top scientists for early bench research experiences, as well as opportunities for dual degrees and fellowships such as HHMI, NIH, Sarnoff, etc." Report Response

What do you like least?

"Although a strength for some, the mandatory public health certificate may encumber time that could be spent for research/shadowing etc. depending on your personal interests. They emphasis training physicians for primary care, though we match into more competitive specialties every year. Must find your own mentor early on to understand different opportunities (an issue probably not specific to this school)." Report Response
