What impressed you positively?

"The faculty members who interviewed me seem to be very accessible and interested in my success. The PCM curriculum sounds fantastic whereby first year gets to develop clinical skills very early on. The rural medicine clerkship requirement also allows students to experience how our health care system works at a community hospital where 3rd years apparently might get the chance to take on significant patient care responsibility due to the absence of higher-ranking residents." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The so-called tour was provided by a very pleasant 2nd year student who made it clear she was only going to give us an abbreviated one due to a major exam the next day. I am am Oregon resident who's already familiar with where the lecture halls are and where the library is. I was hoping to see the anatomy lab but left disappointed. Oh well, maybe the out-of-area students did enjoy the tour." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Everything is straightforward." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"There's a brief Q&A session with admissions staff to start off the day and then everyone goes to their respective first interview. Many people will have their second interview done even before lunch at noon as well. So, contrary to many previous posts, the interview day for my group ends at 2 for most people. Mine was essentially done at noon. Luncheon is held in a windowless conference room in Mackenzie Hall with 2 med students, one 4th yr and one 2nd yr for my group. They provided some good insight into life as a medical student at OHSU. The 4th yr student already struck me as someone who will make a terrific doctor as she seemed very confident and passionate about what she does. I wasn't expecting much from OHSU (my only state school so of course I'm applying here) but after the interview day, I feel quite impressed with how happy the current students are with how things turn out for them here."
