What do you like most?

"The school itself is very supportive of their students. Once you are in, they seem to make sure you get through. This includes helping students through life events that were unpredictable/ unavoidable while allowing them to do what is best for themselves and their families. This school is extremely family friendly and students are really supportive of each other. There is no competition between students in pre-clinical or clinical settings so it is a great learning environment." Report Response

What do you like least?

"The quality of the rotation sites is very hit or miss. Being a rural based school has its negatives when it comes to quality sites that have specialties available. I also dislike that we have no vacation time for interview season 4th year." Report Response

Any other information you want to share?

"Our school has been really supportive through the COVID-19 pandemic. We started receiving credit immediately from being pulled from rotations. I do think the electives have major deficits but they were also thrown together last minute so I will cut them some slack." Report Response
