Can people give some reasons why they chose one school over the other? And confirm/correct the following impressions. I know that while training at Wayne, one will come across the spectrum of common diseases and illnesses resulting in a great clinical education. From looking over MSU's website, I can see that their curriculum differs from Wayne. Two striking differences are PBL and interdisciplinary subjects on medicine (humanities and culture). I believe the latter is optional at Wayne. MSU also seems to offer basic science research opportunities. While interviewing at Wayne, I was told to not go there if interested in research. But a fellow interviewee (a Wayne undergrad) said that was not true. I always had the notion that MSU focused on rural medicine, however, it seems they offer a broad range of clinical sites from urban to rural. Can anyone offer comparisons between the two schools on diversity for patients population and peers (health professionals, students, faculty)?
