Big emphasis on supporting med students, great opportunities for early clinical experience. A lot of faculty interaction. Everyone is really happy to be there (even people from big cities like NY whom you would expect to be bored in a smaller city). There is a great sense of cohesion and support btw med students. The facilities are very new." Report Response
