Overall, how satisfied are you with this program?

8 out of 10

What do you like most?

"The student body has a strong relationship together, and at the end of the day I can be confident that my career will be in a solid place after graduation. OU's alumni network and faculty connections, just from it's age and strength of program, makes it a recognized program in all of my rotations and outside interactions with actual doctors. There's a lot of diversity here as well, and everybody can find a group that they can bond and become close with. This includes diversity of faculty, and it feels like there truly is a faculty member who would be a great mentor for every individual student. Plus, personally I love the campus - tons of study spaces, and provided pandemic passage, a new building that I'm hype for." Report Response

What do you like least?

"OU's faculty are very forward minded, and sometimes the executions of new educational initiatives is a little ambitious (the initial transition to flipped classroom learning took a few weeks for the faculty themselves to even all understand, and we had some slow lectures). But knowing that the faculty is always making efforts makes us know that any real concerns will be resolved. Speaking for the elephant in the room if you are reading these reviews, other posters had real concerns. I can only speak for myself, but every time a concern was brought to faculty there was an eventual solution provided in my view. Whether those solutions pleased everybody, you can say no, but in terms of providing a space for continuous, flexible dialogue, many were still satisfied in faculty being able to admit mistakes and change programs."
