What impressed you negatively?

"The school probably has the worst "campus" of the 8 podiatry schools. It is one run-down building and that's it. Basement anatomy lab and dorm-room sized gym. It is not located in a nice part of New York but neither is Columbia Med/Dental school either. Students did not seem very impressive and the large majority I met went to NYCPM just because its located in new york city. There is no true vision for the podiatry program unlike DMU and AZPOD. The school is independent and not affiliated with a university...same with OCPM. People can say they are affiliated with columbia and NYU but having a few teachers come to nycpm does not count. I mean TRUE affiliations like Temple University with Temple pod, des moines university with CPMS, scholl with rosalind franklin, etc. The president/CEO is just some old businessman with no relation to podiatry. Very few externships (just increased to 4 THIS year) and it seems they keep you working at the nycpm clinics for much of your clinical years. Overall, I think out of the schools I visited - all 8 - NYCPM was the least impressive. Only Barry came close to taking the cake." Report Response
