Does anyone know about UVA? Their website is not very detailed. What type of curriculum is it exactly? Small group learning? problem based? all lecture? It seems like the website says it's a combination of all, but it doesn't say which predominates. Is it all lecture with 1 small meeting of problem based per week, for example? Or is it an equal combination?

Does anyone know about their emphasis on research? The website says they have a special program for research, but again there is only brief mention of it. Does anyone have details about it?

Any info about curriculum etc etc would be great!
Thanks

Well, their curriculum really is a mixed bag. However, it's mostly a traditional lecture oriented curriculum. You sit in lecture M-F from 8? or 9-12 and then you get the rest of the day to study, run errands, whatever. You also have anatomy lab and problem sessions in the afternoon. But you'll probably have 3 out of 5 afternoons free, from what my friends have told me. There's no set research requirement or anything, but mostly people undertake research in the summer after first year.
