Caring and credentialed faculty
World-class medical teaching facilities
Exceptional residency placements

I chose UMHS because they believe in their students. I was very encouraged by the school’s culture of innovation, outside-the-box approach to education, and constant growth…[They lived up to their promise. Ultimately,] I managed to secure one rotation at Case Western and UMHS helped me set up a six-week Ophthalmology elective, which helped me land my research fellowship at Wills Eye Hospital.
