Overall Summary
1. What do you like best about your school?
Overall Summary
  • - Problem-Based Learning (PBL) curriculum. - PBL. It attracts an interesting group of people who like to have fun and learn at the same time. I look forward to the PBL time. - The PBL curriculum allows students a lot of free time. - Problem Based Learning - The PBL curriculum makes really helps you learn the tremendous amount of Step-I material. We've had 100% pass rate on Step I the last 2 years, with no "review" classes needed--students just take it whenever. Something like 10 or 12 of our last Step I class got 250+ on the test (for those that don't know--the mean is 215). Lots of time for friends and family. I thought the party would end at M-1 orientation, but it only got smarter. We have our own financial aid guru who is amazing! He can find money under a rock, and give it to you. A tornado came through town the year I interviewed, and he was able to give the 4 or 5 effected med students money for moving and other expences. Truly an awesome human being. - pbl curriculum is awesome; lots of free time. everyone does stellar on the boards. 12/90 students scored >250 on Step 1 in my class.

12. What do you like least about your school?
Overall Summary
  • - Too much subjectivity in some aspects of grading. - For a state school, it is a little expensive. - Lack of patient diversity is a biggie. Lack of student diversity is also huge. The administration would like to recruit under-represented minorities, but this is still not happening. Lots of married folks who work on increasing their families during medical school. I'm not married, so kinda out of that loop. The in-state tuition is extremely high (the highest in the Big 12 conference), and the regular University gets all that money (and then doesn't give it all back for our budget). It's kinda frustrating, but it's just the way it is. We have a pretty aggressive Dean now, so hopefully the financial thing will change. - 3rd and 4th year is a let down compared to the first 2 years.

13. Please share any other thoughts you may have about your school.
Overall Summary
  • - This school is over-run with FP's. The administration is really proud of its standing as the #2 FP training program. They almost make you feel guilty for considering any other specialty, especially if it is not primary care. - If you're a family oriented person, who wants to be prepared for step I and II, and have a tremendous experience, Mizzou might be for you. I will feel prepared both as a clinician and as a person applying to top-notch residencies outside of Mizzou. When a weird presentation comes into the ER, I'm immediately formulating a differential diagnosis based on the great instruction of the first 2 years. It really sticks with you. - overall- would recommend this state school because it teaches you how to THINK about medicine. prepares you well for the boards (which is vERY important) Pretty expensive for a state school ~20k per year.
