Their clinical experience is supposed to be one of the best in the nation.

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'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.
