Overall Summary
1. What do you like best about your school?
Overall Summary
  • - The administration is very resonsive to student concerns. - It has a strong reputation, and is endowed with lots of resources. - Students are cooperative, intelligent, interesting and fun; professors are often world reknowned in their fields - many research opportunities clinical training at barnes-jewish - WashU treats their students so well!! I am extremely happy here! - Wash U is a terrific place to get a medical education as well as to explore extracurricular activities. The administration is exceedingly supportive of ALL student organizations - we are definitely spoiled in a lot of ways. The AMSA chapter here, for instance, has always been very well funded and is perennially a strong organization, as are many other student organizations on campus. The curriculum is flexible enough that you have the time to be engaged in extracurricular activities, and although the work load can be heavy in the second year, you never feel like your entire life is consumed by medicine. The students are genuinely nice people, as are the faculty and administration. It's a laid-back type of place to go to school, being in the Midwest, and even though my classmates freak out every so often (we're medical students, after all), they're generally very satisfied with how things are here.

12. What do you like least about your school?
Overall Summary
  • - It's expertise is like needle-nosed pliers - all basic science research and subspecialties. - Not enough time between second and third year to study for the boards - curriculum is too conservative minimal patient interaction in first two years poor teaching quality in first two years - Wash U doesn't pretend to be a great place to be for careers in public health or health policy. As one of our deans put it, we put all of our eggs in two baskets: research and clinical medicine. Those are two formidable baskets, of course - the research is second to none, and Barnes Jewish Hospital is a stellar place to train clinically. But there isn't much of an intrastructure for careers in public health and health policy, so if that's what you want to go into for sure, think twice about coming here. I'm not saying you won't find what you're looking for, but it is admittedly more difficult, as I am finding out myself.

13. Please share any other thoughts you may have about your school.
Overall Summary
  • - Great place to go if you want to be a cog in the machinery of the academic medical establishment. - An amazing school; I'm glad I went here - please consider location carefully if you are not a fan of the midwest, it is painful to live in st. louis for 4 years - Even if Wash U isn't aiming to train great primary care physicians per se, in general, you can do anything you want within clinical medicine here. Lots of people go into internal medicine/pediatrics and into private practice from Wash U. On the other hand, if you want to be around mostly people who want to go into primary care, this is probably not the place for you. The majority of us are looking at subspecialties, hospital-based practices, etc.
