For whom has been to PCOM-ATL?
Please, can a pre-osteopathic medical student tell me about ones experience at the PCOM-ATL during their interview? :cool: I have an interview at this particular school on Feb. 17, 2005. What state-of-the-art technology do they have other than the following:

"STAN, short for Standard Man, is a sophisticated mannequin that breathes, has a heartbeat, pupils that react to light and medication, a pulse that can be felt at five locations and lung sounds. He can even talk. STAN can be programmed to mimic almost any medical situation that might occur and accurately actually mirrors human responses to such procedures as CPR, intravenous medication, intubation and catheterization" (PCOM web site).

Also, they have wireless Internet. Even Pikeville has the wireless Internet service...

:idea:

I was there earlier today . . and the building is still under construction. They did explain, however, that the library was going to have all the books on the internet, and any latest editions will be put online as well. There will be a small gym on the campus, and they were saying something about having the lectures available in mp3 format. That would be a definate plus. I was very impressed with eveything that will be available in the new campus.
