    Hey, I am coming to NSUCOM. What's up future classmates? I am from PA and I need to get the hell out of here; so that explains (partly) why I am going to NSU. I need a roommate and some valuable information for NSU. Anything will really help out about relocating to Ft. Lauderdale. So please reply, even just to make conversation.

      Hey my name is Laura and I am coming to NSUCOM this fall too. I am from Maryland so I know what you mean about getting out of here. I am thinking about buying a condo instead of renting. I am flying down March 5 to look around and figure some stuff out. Otherwise I know nothing about relocating to Ft. Lauderdale. Well talk to you soon.

        Hey Laur01:

        I think buying a condo is probably a great idea. I thinking about doing the same when I move down there and then having somebody live with me.

        Can I ask, why you chose NSU. I need a little reassurance about attending NSU

        Good Luck in school
        Hope to see you July 29th

        AK :)

          I am from Lebanon-Lancaster area, but right now I am working at Fox Chase Cancer Center in Fox Chase Philly, and I live in Conshohocken. Why NSU? -its something different than boring PA. I got accepted to PCOM, and they too have an MPH program. NSU and PCOM's costs are essentially the same, but NSU will pay for your MPH education if you are enrolled in the DO program. Thats about it.

            Hey Jabroni:

            The MPH program is that a full scholarship, I really don't know that that is. I know it is a Master's in public Health, but that's it

            Hey how do you like Fox Chase.

            Are you interested in Oncology when you get out. Do you know if NSU has some good oncology rotations. (Probably skin cancer mostly, from that beautiful sun)

              Jabroni:

              Which school do you think has a better cirriculum, rotations, and residencies. I mean it not like PCOM gets into the best hosiptals in Philly for their rotations (Jeff, Penn, CHOP, Temple)
              Do you know how long is the avg day at NOVA
              Because when I was at SUNY Buffalo the class day was only 8-12 that didn't seem like enough time in classes. But I don't wasnt to be going to school from 8-4 or 5

                Nope, NSU only pays for Masters of Public Health. I am not sure about the rotations questions, but I am interested in surgical oncology (or some sort of surgery option). That would be cool if NSU would pay for your doctorate, but we don't live in dream world. About the length of a class day: go to <a href="http://www.nsu2006.com" target="_blank">www.nsu2006.com</a> there is a sample schedule of an M1 from last year.

                  Hey Jabroni
                  Dean Salvagni sdays he is bringing in more and more research. Are you looking at taking some of the research electives.

                  I want to find out some of the professor's research interests

                  I really need to talk to more NSU students to make sure about these rotations and how they compete for residency spots

                  I think the rural medicine rotation will definitely keep you humble.

                    Hey Jabroni:

                    Thanks for that website.
                    I guess class is from 8-4. I guess that is not that bad.
                    I guess we get what we pay for

                    If you don't mind me asking how are you paying for the cost of everything.

                    Are you interested in the army scholarships or is it just loans

                      Dr AdamK:
                      I looked into the military options; they want you to do some stuff during your summers of the first 2 years. This is impossible for me if I am going to do the MPH thing, since I would have class during the summer. You can get 38.5K in Stafford Loans, this is what I am applying for currently. I hope that this is enough, but if it's not, then I guess I will have to go to one of the alternative lenders. I am not sure about research electives, I would have to see whats availble. If you find or need anything else, please reply.

                        just a little info from a fellow classmate:
                        according to Dr. Terry who is the chancellor at NSU the MPH degree can only be begun after the first year. you first have to be in good academic standing before they will allow you to sign up for classes.
                        I, too, have been accepted by PCOM and NSUCOM and
                        I have chosen Florida for many reasons, including the MPH program, the better teachers (especially OMM), the fact that friends of mine will be attending, and let's not deny it... the warm weather. :p Looking forward to meeting you.

                          At NSU you can go tons of places...
                          most stay in Broward County or in Miami, but some go to Orlando, Tampa, Daytona, Georgia...
                          I'm doing my cores up in Tampa, and I can also do them anywhere up here, not just the osteopathic hospital, which is real nice because I get both a traditional DO education, but also see what its like for the MD students.
