& STUDENT LOANS
Our goal is to prepare students for the next level of medical training in ACGME-accredited American teaching hospitals by implementing U.S. standard curriculum, used in the best North American LCME/AAMC colleges of medicine stressing Higher Order Thinking Skills (knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis and evaluation) tested in USMLE Step I rather than simple memorization of facts.
CMU provides the perfect atmosphere with a mix of small class sizes and easily approachable faculty. I personally have watched the University evolve over my time here in regards to recruiting quality faculty, curriculum improvements and the brand new compass that should be completed soon. The faculty has a high expectation that you will work hard and that is the attitude you should have when you come here.
My clinical rotations through CMU have been a very enjoyable learning experience. I have been able to learn and work alongside some highly recommended and skilled doctors. Also, the whole process of planning clinical rotations has been great due to the close communication and variety of options provided by the University’s clinical department.
Coming to this school was one of the best decisions I ever made. I am getting more opportunities here than I can imagine. Not only am I getting great education, I am involved in research and community outreach programs. For that, I am very thankful.
Since leaving Curacao I’ve completed clinical rotations in Chicago and Atlanta; my experience has been excellent! CMU has made it easy setting up core rotations back to back while offering a wide variety of electives. They provide knowledgeable preceptors who enjoy teaching combined with invaluable hospital experience.
The clinical experience with CMU has been very engaging. I have been able to learn from a great variety of preceptors. It has also been convenient having various options to choose from when picking a rotation. Overall, my clinical experience at CMU has been interactive and educative.
