    Hi...I just got into SGU and a few DO (PCOM and Nova) schools. Besides the initials, I am trying to establish which institution will provide me with the best clinical training and best opportunity to match into a good residency. Moreover, what criteria destinguishes a good hospital from a bad one? University vs community?
    Many beds vs few beds? Big city vs small city?

    One thing I want to point out about SGU clinicals, is that it is NOT required to do any clinicals in the UK. Many do by choice, but are not required. Also, you will see that SGU has and is continuing to create "clinical centers" where we can do most if not all of our cores and electives. This will minimize or eliminate all the moving around (unless you like that), and put us closer to U.S. schools clinical curriculum

    Things to consider: The hospital affiliations are important but there is a large choice in simply St.George v. DO. If you attend St.George you will go through extra testing that an american medical school student doesn't have to go through. When you apply for match, you are also treated differently american v. FMG. Of course the desire to learn maniputaltion is an issue? Certainly affiliate hospitals are important but they tend to change...so look at the big picture too.
