The Basics

Overall, how satisfied are you with this program?

4 out of 10

What do you like most?

"Clinical opportunities early - Student Run Clinics and M2 Clinical Experiential Clerkship program. P4 (Population, Patient, Physician, & Professionalism) Course covers pertinent public health, ethics, and more regarding treating patients. This school deeply engages with the community; Detroit is a unique environment in which to experience all types of clinical scenarios - a breadth which you will not find elsewhere." Report Response

What do you like least?

"Their new curriculum is poorly executed. Furthermore, they routinely ask for student feedback but ignore it completely. Communication is a huge problem - the administrators and faculty do not communicate with each other or the students. This breakdown in communication is pervasive and causes a lot of added stress to students. An example of this is when the start date of M2 was suddenly changed weeks before M1 was about to end and students found out that they would not receive financial aid as expected. Students were panicked, many wondering how they would pay for food and rent. Administrators refused to have a Town Hall with students. Ultimately, the start date was changed back to the original, and because of the mistake of financial aid, the school issued a stipend (which for many helped, but was still not enough)."

Any other information you want to share?

"This program is for people who can deal with constant uncertainty and miscommunication in the first two years. Additionally, be prepared to learn on your own and spend money (not budgeted into the cost of attendance) on outside resources, as lectures are confusing, outdated, and have not been revamped to fit within the new curriculum which assessed by NBME exams. If you can make it through the rough pre-clinical years, M3 and M4 will be a unique clinical experience which will make you well-prepared for any residency program." Report Response
