I've been looking at which schools
to apply to a lot recently, and I'm trying to narrow it down to three so that I don't break the bank on admission fees, transcripts, etc. My reading has left me interested in KPSA, and I'd like to hear from anyone who has been, or is currently enrolled there. I am in the midst of watching the pre-application information modules, and it left me with a concern regarding clinical time. According to the curriculum module, it seems that very little time is spent in the hospital with hands on clinical time. Is this true? Each semester had what looked like a 4 day clinical practicum, and that was all. This seems like very little time with hands on learning. Can any of you comment on this? How much time do students spend in the OR at KPSA? Do you know roughly how many cases you have done upon graduation? I have seen how US News and World Report ranks the program, but how would YOU rate the program?
Thanks in advance!
