What are your general comments?

"This is a nice interview day. Your questions about curriculum and financial aid will be answered in group presentations, and you get to meet multiple current students over the course of lunch and your tour. The new HEB is very cool - they even have a model hospital where nurses and MDs in training work together on simulation cases. A major emphasis throughout the day is that KU Med seeks to train clinicians to serve in Kansas." Report Response
