    5/5, 5 out of 5, reviewed Apr 17, 2015
    Class Size:
    151 - 200 Students
    Quality of life:
    Clinical Experience:
    • + Lots of early clinical exposure, lots of clinical skills training Very clinically focused curriculum, no obscure basic science Super diverse class with tons of different backgrounds Administration is very responsive to student feedback 3 year school means you are done a year early and will not forget everything in the summer
    • - 3 year school is stressful, but totally doable Due to program length, have to do elective before core rotations (we still match really well!)
    Overall I'm very happy with my decision to attend Calgary over UBC or Mac. I love the clinically focused curriculum, the awesome class and the caring administration.
