    While the facilities aren't the best, the clinical experience is unlike any other...you see the worst pathology in the nation. Also, there MD/MPH program is 4 years :) haha

    they seem to have a good match list for specialties like em and gas (maybe others, too, but those are the only two i keep an eye on). i don't need more pudding than that.

    They're known for providing healthcare to a large population of uninsured working class population around Brooklyn. And their clinical is great, in terms of seeing lots of trauma cases, and doing tons of 'hands-on' training even as an MS. They're well-known for churning out very clinically prepared medical students. :)

    Downstate is a great school. I loved it when I visited. Not only is it known for it's clinical experience, but I also got a great vibe from all of the students I met. They were very down-to-earth and independent.
