Comments from Students: 

"Dr. Kang is crazy intelligent- so nice to be able to ask a question and get a direct answer- not oh Ill have to look that up later. She was also very flexible to letting us see different departments and very good about teaching when it was needed."

"The ability to see patients on my own, write my own notes, and formulate my own plans. The doctors were all very open to having a student and fantastic teachers"

"The hospital stuff was really, really fun. You get to work with 10 different family docs in continuity clinic and a same day appointment clinic and spend some time in peds, ortho and podiatry. Very relaxed setting, all the doctors are very supportive."

"It was great to work in a rural area and to work with wonderful physicians that are committed to the community they work in."
