Overall Summary
1. What do you like best about your school?
Overall Summary
  • - wide variety of experiences available clinically - Patient interactions in pre-clinical years. - Excellent prep for Step 1, and proximity to NEW YORK CITY!!!!! - Variety of hospital locations Teaching Location - I like the clincal opportunities associated with working in NYC and the opportunity to work in a variety of hospitals with a variety of patient populations. The new anatomy lab and study modules in Valhalla are nice. - The environment is very supportive for the intensive learning and studying that must be done. The curriculum really promotes cooperative learning, so that competitiveness is frowned upon. Students here are real people with outside lives and the administration realizes that and works with us to create the well-rounded physician.
  • It has a fifth pathway program for med students from overseas so you can do all your rotations with better reputed residency programs than in "lesser" areas. They have about 6-10 hospitals with known residency progrmas in that field.

12. What do you like least about your school?
Overall Summary
  • - wide variety of quality of clinical training depending on site and staff - Don't utilize technology as much as they could, i.e. our labs often still use slide projectors, whereas some schools have extensive computer based learning. - Cost - There are few opportunities for strong mentoring relationships and there are not a lot of research opportunity. - There is little that I can say I don't like. I would have to go with the isolated location in Westchester for the first two years, although NYC is readily accessible.
  • I found that the environment wasn't "money" or "rich" enough for my taste. Personally I feel all docs should be cultured into $ and "professional class behavior". This was all middle class kids.....sad......the ignorant, culturally impoverished, and mentally impoverished are now getting what it's about.

13. Please share any other thoughts you may have about your school.
Overall Summary
  • - Greatly enjoy it here. It close to the city, but quiet. The students are great and willing to get involved in the community. - 40% of my class is from California - Our school provides a solid clinical medical education, excellent USMLE preparation, and the oppportunity to cater clinical experience toward the interests of each student as we work with a variety of hospitals in the NYC area. - Great environment, great atmosphere, hard-working and understanding administration, faculty, and staff. I haven't lost sight of who I am and what is important to me, despite the amount of effort I have had to put into my education.
  • They offer a fifth pathway and other supervised clinical programs in their hospitals. The training is better than alot of other training options for foreign grads. But do those rotations at hospitals with residency programs in the same field only or you get ripped off in training. And you have to get on some attendings/residents to teach more. The population is too ethnic. I found more than an "acceptable" level of minorities which shouldn't exceed 8 % anyways. The people and hospital staff in New York can be rude......I assumed sadly they were the "beloved". The people in some "tougher" area hospitals with minorities have threatended crime to docs and students. Apparently they havent left the trash habits behind yet.
