    • + Good faculty, English language very good. Clinical rotations provide a lot of training for students. Great hands on experience.
    • - Administration office very unorganized and unresponsive.
    Overall, the quality of education provided at Carol Davila is excellent. Students are given the opportunity to be involved in many research projects, conferences and trainings.
