What do you like most?

"I love the exposure that we get. Early hands-on skills and clinically we start treating patients third year making it two full years of patient treatment instead of one.

They've also restructured curriculum for the new INBDE. We aren't required to find our own patients, we have faculty who's sole purpose is to filter each incoming patient and put them with a student based on what the patient's needs are and what the students requirements left are."
