What impressed you positively?

"3rd and 4th years seem to be awesome at temple. The doctors at Temple hospital really treat their medical students as if they were residents, and there are a ton of opportunities to get your hands 'dirty' in. Students are allowed to help out with procedures/suture, etc. Great clinical practice!! They are also building a new building, and it really seems like Temple has been implementing so many new changes to really bring up their name. It's a school that is definitely looking ahead to the future" Report Response
