What impressed you positively?

"During the campus tour, the podiatry students were working on a lab practical with cadavers lined up along the walls - it was nice to see what I'd be doing. The students all seemed fairly close and helped each other out, from what I could gather." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Barry's podiatric Medicine and Surgery Program was recently added to the undergraduate university - little undergrads are underfoot everywhere. Also, it was 87 degrees at the beginning of March. I shudder to consider the heat of summer classes. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Everything seemed very laid back and relaxed - though it was a Friday afternoon. I wish that I had had more time to sit down and talk with the students about their take on the program. The facilities were ok, but they're building a brand new graduate sciences building soon, which is sure to be state of the art. There is no graduate student housing, although Barry will help you find a place to live that is close by. In your third year clinical rotations, you will need a car to get to the various hospitals because Miami is so spread out (and doesn't have public transportation)." Report Response
