Gave introductions to everyone as to who we were and school came from. Met with the dean and chair of ER clerkship. The food was EXCELLENT do you understand me! We had an excellent tour guide of the medical center, outstanding trauma center. I interviewed with Dr. Miller, chief of radiology! He was very nice and knew my file well. Overall a good day but expect to stay till about 2!" Report Response
