Overall Summary
1. What do you like best about your school?
Overall Summary
  • - The in-state tuition. - The limited class time. - What I like best about my school is the time schedual. We are done early three times a week which gives me time to study and spend time with my family. - The curriculum is great...I like the location also. - Good amount of patient interaction during first two years - -curriculum - early clinical training, great teaching hospitals. - PBL is an opportunity to practice public speaking and not used to teach students, facilities are for modern and comfortable. - great teaching during 1st and 2nd year good clinical rotations - Excellent exposure to primary care in an inner city population. Good basic education. Caring, responsive faculty. Very friendly, diverse, cooperative, involved student body. - diversity of the student body curriculum in the first two years - My classmates and the clinical faculty are the best part of the school. I also think that being in West Baltimore and learning about the poverty in and the need for creative health care solutions will make me a better clinician.

12. What do you like least about your school?
Overall Summary
  • - not enough female mentors in specialties - That most lectures are given by PhDs, not MDs. - The lack of support from the administration. They are often inefficient and rude when dealing with students. - The availability of parking for commuters. - It could do better with gay/lesbian issues - Extremely competitive students - -letter grading system - letter grades tend to make classes competitive - crime in the area (city environment), often solicited for money when walking in the street by the school, cafeteria is not very good, and the tests ask too few and too specific (sometimes "trick") questions to be an accurate measure of knoledge in subject - too much primary care - Poor career advising. Large percentage of graduates do primary care. - lack of administrative guidance in terms of planning 4th year electives - The administration has been disengaged for the past few years as the school has focused more energy on Facilities and Research. However this year we have a new associate dean who was past chairman of the department of surgery who has made it his personal crusade to make the school more student friendly and encourage more interaction between students and faculty on the pre-clinical years.

13. Please share any other thoughts you may have about your school.
Overall Summary
  • - Maryland is an excellent school for primary care. If you're a resident of Maryland and you get accepted, you'd be crazy to pass it up. - The school seems to over emphasize primary care at the expense of other fields. - I like it...it is very computer oriented which is cool. Everyone has a laptop, which is cool. - very affordable with lots of resources - good school, which matches well in primary care, and in surgical specialties...e-mail me if you have specific questios - Excellent school, good size class, some good teachers, very good curriculum (organized in blocks) and teaching style. Good patient contact first year, focuses on interviewing patients. People have time to get involved in other activities too. - Maryland's curriculum is great, and allows you to also have a life! - I absolutely love Maryland! I have met really amazing students with diverse interests and my experiences in the hospital with clinical faculty have been outstanding. The curriculum in the first two years de-emphasizes lectures and I feel that this may be responsible for the disengagement by the administration, but the pendulum is swinging back and I think good changes are being made here.
