Overall Summary
  • - Ample opportunities for those students who knows what they want to do (i.e. for students who knows which speciality they're interested in before entering med school). - very friendly students - The noncompetitive environment and friendliness of professors/staff physicians - On the cutting edge of medical education. Making efforts to stay on top of the latest ideas in education. - The majority of the faculty are very interested in teaching. - Good education in a friendly environment - Students have a friendly, helpful attitude and are not competitive in a hostile manner, but do strive to do well. - Safe campus, nice patient population - The school admininstration really wants to see all students succeed in what they do. - How the curriculum integrates clinically relevant information from day one. - I believe they trully attempt to listen to student's preception of the curriculum, because changes are made based on student input. Students participate in lunchtime sessions where they can air their views, with curriculum organizers and professors from respective classes are present. An open forum. - Everyone is very interested in my success and the teachers are very interested in helping me learn the material. - The fact that the college really listens to the student body, and makes changes based on our opinions. - The other students are more supportive than competative - Cooperative, friendly atmosphere. Students are a close-knit group and spend free time together. - Cooperative, friendly atmosphere. Students are a close-knit group and spend free time together. - collaboration (between students, faculty, and staff) - THe student body really works well together. we help each other to suceed. - I really enjoy the curriculum, the congeniality of students--my peers were always happy to help each other--be it mastering difficult topics, or supporting team members on the floor (i.e., covering patients, running small errands, etc...). I have received excellent guidance/mentoring both in research, and in applying for a highly competitive residency (ENT). The computer facilities/ resources are unparalleled--i.e., the Virtual Hospital, free access to many well-respected online sites (Harrison's, MDConsult, UpToDate, etc...) - the early clinical exposure

12. What do you like least about your school?
Overall Summary
  • - Extremely Primary care oriented. - the classrooms and library - Cost for out of state students - Library and computer availability. - Too few patient care responsibilities - The lecture rooms are old and crowded and shared with undergraduate classes, the library is also old and outdated. There are plans to build a new medical school building so we no longer need to share space with undergrads. - Still working out the kinks since switch to new curriculum - The current lecture facilities. However this area is being improved as we speak . - That it is in Iowa - From my experience, and having listened to students express their views, minority students are invited to attend and do, but they don't really feel completely "accepted or understood". Many of these students believe it is due to the attitudes held by the midwest ideology. They feel that the pattern of thought is more traditional and not as sophisticated or worldly as their undergraduate institutions were (often east and west coast locations). - I would like a larger city. Iowa City is pretty much a university town. - The bomb-shelter appearance of the library. - The lecture hall, but we're getting a new building. - Lots of married students. - Lots of married students. - weather, parking, - not as diverse as we would prefer. - Iowa City can feel like a small place, but really, for anyone who is willing to look, there is a lot to do--and for a LOT cheaper. The library itself is not so nice. - parking

13. Please share any other thoughts you may have about your school.
Overall Summary
  • - I am really happy here, as the school is in a really special situation in that it is such a top notch facility in a nice location. - Iowa City is a great place to live. The doctors at the U of I hospital for the most part are able and willing to teach. - I do not think that I could have a better experience at any other medical school. - It is well worth it! - Iowa City is a very nice town - not too big, but not small either. There is plenty to do here and crime is not a big problem. Especially good for families. - The professors in the second year curriculum appear more student oriented - courses appear more organized and facilitate student learning. - They prepare you well for a career as a physician. - The College is presently building a new building which will address the issue of study-space, and general atmosphere. - Iowa City is a pleasant, safe town. It is not a large city, but there is plenty to do. - Iowa City is a pleasant, safe town. It is not a large city, but there is plenty to do. - we're getting a new building to make up for the outdated auditoriums - The curriculum mandates a lot of interaction with patients in the 1st 2 years (more than other schools), and it really helps students. The emphasis on primary care is actually a benefit, b/c my generalist skills are *very* good, and will serve me well as a specialist. The new facility is quite beautiful, and more importantly, quite practical to use.
