What are the facilities and clinics like (old/new, well maintained, etc.)?

"Outstanding clinical facilities; preclinical facilities were unremarkable" Report Response

How do students from this program do after graduation - are they adequately prepared for practice?

"Great track record for residencies and beyond" Report Response

What are rotations like?

"Clinical rotations in Israel are truly world class; Sheba Medical Center is really one of the best hospitals in the world and clinicals are led by amazing physicians who genuinely want to teach; US clerkships have gotten increasingly challenging as US medical schools increase enrollment. The school understands that challenge but as of yet has not taken the necessary action to expand available clerkships and it remains largely a student responsibility" Report Response

How do students from this program do in the Match?

"Quite well. Most students are able to match into the field they're looking for but much of the onus is on the students to build relationships in their field of interest" Report Response

Any other information you want to share?

"Academically and clinically, the school is quite strong. Administratively, the program does not have a full time program director and it shows. All of the basic functions are taken care of like visas and transcripts, but anything past that is a mess. The administration is constantly condescending and really has not changed anything significantly since the program and seems possible incapable of the improvements necessary to remain competitive until the office gets its act together" Report Response
