What impressed you negatively?

"The way they push the hospital as a "business, specifically a public corporation" (verbatim quote). One faculty member (with a student at the school) saying they are not getting their $40,000 worth but they are trying to change that. Low board pass rates requiring them to change their curriculum. Anatomy class I sat in on was the same stuff I got in undergrad. Saw one student on a preceptorship, while I was waiting for my interview, get an attitude from the receptionist when asked by the student where she could get scrubs." Report Response
