    I was interviewed and accepted there last cycle, although I chose to enter KCOM instead.

    Positive impressions:
    --widespread use of computer technology
    --excellent and new facilities
    --faculty and students who genuinely seem to care
    --Kansas City
    --if you have an SO, KC provides many more career opportunities for them

    Negative impressions:
    --the neighborhood
    --lack of safe, quality housing on-campus or nearby
    --personal interview experience
    --large class size [~250]

    My $0.02 worth

    Does anyone know how UHS compares to WesternU?

    Also, what are your impressions on TCOM?
    Thanks again.

    A friend of mine is a 3rd year student at UHS/COM and he told me that a big difference between Western U and UHS/COM is that UHS/COM is only now just creating a strong OMM program whereas Western U has had a strong OMM program for many years. All I know about TCOM is that they like to take their residents above all else. (94%!)

    TCOM is cool. We just switched to a new organ-based curriculum, have a new school of public health, an established DO/PhD program, good local rotations, and a new innovative pre-doctoral OMM fellowship in clinical research. If you're an out-of-state applicant interested in dual degree training opportunities (DO/MS, DO/MPH, or DO/PhD) your application might get a closer a look.
