For some reason (I think an accident), my thread was moved to topics in healthcare. Obviously, my thread belongs in the pre-allo forum as we are discussing the merits of schools. So, I've posted a link to the discussion thus far, and all are welcome to comment after they have read up on it. I have posted my original comments below. http://forums.studentdoctor.net/showthread.php?t=244105 To be honest, I find it hard to believe after interviewing at yale, harvard, and hopkins that all medical education is the same. the resources at these schools are simply unparalleled. furthermore, the faculty have proved themselves in one way or another. i mean, compared to a school like UTMB, or UT-Houston (i interviewed at these places), it's clear that there are differences in medical schools. big differences. why must we keep insisting that all medical education is the same? there is a reason everybody goes to hopkins if they have a special case/disease; and there is a reason they don't go to UTMB... not to pick on UTMB, the people are wonderful. i just want to point out that there are clear differences.
