Any graduate or previous student of UM CRNA school

  1. 0
    I have just gotten accepted into UM's CRNA program beginning in August 08, and am wondering if anyone out there has observed their students in clinicals and or had any feedback about their program. I do know it is a relatively new program, established in 2005, recently graduated their first class w/100% passing board, however I believe the class consisted of 5-6 students total. Any feed back is appreciated Thanks

    Hi are you talking about U of Michigan at Flint? Also, what interview questions did you have? What kind of chemistry did you take in college- basic 101 (nursing) or general 171 (pre-med type chemistry sequence)? thank you for your advice!

    Definately not UMFlint since that has been a masters program since 1991 and was originally founded in 1950 as the Hurley School of Anesthesia.:wink2:

    Congratulations! That is wonderful! Where did you get your BSN and did you work in ICU?

    The OP (original poster) can not be referring to the University of Michigan-Flint program since he/she indicates the UM program she is referring to is new since 2005. UMFlint graduated its first Masters class in 1993. :wink2:

    I am assuming you mean the program at University of Miami, Coral Gables. I am slated to start there in a few weeks. I applied/was accepted to 5 programs over the past year, and, after doing a lot of homework on the matter, decided that UofMiami was the best fit for me. They are new and do have some kinks still (as some students in the program report), but the new program director has the program headed in a great direction. I also heard some insider info on the latest accreditation review by AANA that they said they would rank the program at UMiami in top 10 of newer programs.

    Hmmm.... Could also be University of Maryland, which also started a program around 2005 and starts each year in August.

    Does anyone know how the interview process at University of Miami is like? Any details would be quite helpful. Thank you.

    it was a pretty chill interview. you can expect to have the program director, and a couple other faculty in there with you. you will sit at a table and just talk anesthesia school in an informal way: why are you interested in going into anesthesia, how do you plan on paying for school, how do you handle stress,---> a lot of logistics related questions on how you plan on getting through school in a dedicated & healthy manner. then they'll most likely ask you about your ICU experience, maybe discuss your pt. population, and maybe ask 1-2 clinical questions that pertain to your particular ICU (i.e. if you work in a neuro ICU, you may have to describe a little neuro pathophysiology & pharmacology, but you won't be expected to know how milrinone works at the cellular level). Bottom line: a fairly informal, friendly, get-to-know you, type interview
