    Hello SDN people. I just got the invite from UCLA-Drew to interview. Someone informed me a while back that Drew invites about 30-40 students a month to interview on the same day. Does anyone know what day of the month Drew does their interviews this year? Thanks in advance for your help.

    JDUB, thanks for the info. I forgot about your post earlier this year.

    The interviews are at the Drew campus in Watts. Across the street from the Drew campus is MLK-Drew Medical Center. Nothing is scheduled to happen at the UCLA-Westwood main campus, unless you are the rare case that has to interview there.

    I agree, there is not much information on their website. However, as someone else wrote earlier, they are committed to training physicians to practice in underserved communities.

    Jedi in Training,

    A person I know was invited to interview there this past Saturday. I don't know whether they interview that many people on the same day, but
    you never know. In addition, the interview does
    take place on the Drew campus in South Central

    To put things into perspective, I volunteered in the MLK-Drew emergency room a few years ago. I spent a couple of summers there. It was a good learning experience. I was friends with a few residents and they had this to say about Drew:

    Attending: Are you interested in a good teaching experience?

    Me: Yes

    Attending: Are you interested in supervised mentorship?

    Me: yes, yes!

    Attending: Then go somewhere else. For god's sake, don't stay here.
