Mongomery Hospital/ Lasalle U. School of Anesthesia in Philly

  1. Hey,

    Does anyone have any info. on Montgomery Hospital/ Lasalle University School of Anesthesia?? I have an interview there on June 2nd (whoooo hoooo!!!!) Has anyone interviewed there or could give me some insight? Also, what have you all heard about the school? This is really the one school in the Philly area that I have pretty much heard nothing about, so any insider info. would be great!! Thanks, you guys are awesome!!

    Hey Nikki,
    Congratulations on your interview! As for Lasalle, I don't have any specific info, but I do know a couple of CRNAs that are Lasalle graduates and they have spoken very highly of the program. Best of luck.

    a friend of mine got in w/ only 6 mos of experience....but they do a front loaded program from what i gather - so the clinical is later....haven't heard anything bad....is that good?!?!? LOL

    Yeah I know, I heard most of the programs in Philly are integrated and you start clinicals right away. I guess waiting until the summer to start clinicals could be good or bad depending on how you look at it. On one hand, I would have more time to devote solely to academics, on another hand, sometimes doing things hands on helps me learn. I'm glad your friend got in with only 6 mo. experience because that's all I have at this point-- I have a 3.9 GPA though. I will have almost 3 years by the time I start in Sept. 2006. Anyone else have any words of wisdom??

    Lasalle has an intergrated program like most of the schools in the Philly area.

    London88- sorry i gave the wrong info - but my friend has only had classes since this past september...and doesn't start clinicals until this sept....perhaps they were just pre-req type stuff.....my bad.

    According to the info. I received from the school, classes start in September, and clinical rotations begin in the summer of the junior year.

    Montgomery students participate in the co-op teaching, and we attend the same lectures together. They are in clinical from the first semester. Maybe they plan on changing things in the future, but as it stands they are not front loaded. Penn, Crozer, Montgomery and Nazareth participate in co-op teaching where all the students attend the same lectures together. They are all intergrated programs.

    I interviewed at Montgomery Hospital in 1988 and am a 1990 graduate. I'm sure many things are much different now, however I received an excellent education, have been able to work competently and comfortably in many different settings and highly recommend this school. Best of Luck!
