    Has anyone taken the UCHSC interview and hand skills psychomotor assessment, for their International Student Program (ISP).

    If you had, what kind of psychomotor assessment they ask you to take.

    Here is the link to their site:
    Colorado ISP .

    Any information you give, will be highly appreciated

    Yeah.
    They requested a mo alamg. prep on #30 and a PFM prep. #3.
    In addidtion, they have a series of wax excercises. It's really nothing you can prepare for, you just have to have good psychomotor skills. They give you 3 different types of wax and ask you to mold different shapes out of them on a card they give you. It was ok, once you get your hands to stop shaking from the interview.
    The good thing is that you will have plenty of time.

    This year they took 20 students into the program.It is a very good program and I am really happy . The professors are very experienced and take good care of the students.Their teaching techniques are excellent. They pay attention to each and every student in the class.Last but not least the new campus is very nice.

    Hey amdoct

    Could you please tell us how their facilities are? I take it that since they built a new campus, they must have very new and advanced facilities? Thanks

    They took 20 students in our batch. Yes we have improved facilities. Sim lab is very good. The school is in a nice ,huge hospital campus and the class rooms are really nice.More over I like the professors and staff here. We are like a family. Professors understand the students problems and deal accordingly.I am really blessed to be in this school.If you have any questions feel free to ask.
