TLDR: Are you sure you want to be a doctor? How badly? Like, seriously, how much would you be willing to sacrifice? True, no matter where you go for medical school, the words "challenging" and "sacrifice" and "sleep-deprivation" are universally known to come with the territory. But what I'm referring to with this review of OSU-CHS extends beyond that universal baseline. So, if you're sure about this, if your positive medicine is the career that you want to pursue, if you understand and accept that regardless of the program you choose - there will be hardships along the way...here's my advice/caveat: CONSIDER ALL YOUR OPTIONS. OSU-CHS is a program that used to have gumption on behalf of the study body, a cohesive line-up of faculty/staff/professors that were largely captivating, approachable, and eager to help the students succeed. That's why it pains me to write you now and essentially explain "OSU-CHS is NOT in Kansas anymore". Would you be willing to go to a program who's continued to spiral downward since the birth of a poorly-designed/executed "new curriculum"? Did I mention that said "curriculum" was implemented ~4 years ago, and since then, each consecutive year has ended with the faculty/staff "re-evaulating", "re-branding", and/or "re-processing" their methods...only to further add weight to an already sinking ship? I'm talking about a program who's first-time board failure rate has continued to grow each year since the advent of said "new curriculum", and sadly, nothing has been adequately done to make a change for the better. This, my friends, is a very big deal. In fact, when interviewing at any medical school, always make it a point to ask for these type of statistics. Don't settle for a political response of an answer, ask for concrete numbers like "The Pass/Fail rate over (X) amount of years". That information alone should help guide you as to whether you should stick-around for the free lunch/campus tour vs. shaking-hands & Usain-Bolting out of there. By now, if I've kept your attention, you should be asking yourself "why?" Why is it that the number of students remediating course-work and/or re-taking boards continues to grow each year at OSU-CHS? Why can't this program seem to figure-out a winning recipe? What happened? The answer is multifactorial. It starts with losing some incredible professors and faculty to retirement (vs. "other") around the same time this new curriculum came-to-be (some of who were "timely" in their leaving...others, seemingly out-of-the-blue). Things got worse when instead of hiring a series of fresh, motivated, new-blood to reset the standard...our school opted to spread and promote more responsibilities (and subsequently "power") amongst those who remained. That's not to say that everyone who still teaches/works there is part of the problem. Fortunately, a handful remain who continue to re-install our faith in humanity, but what happens when that "handful" realizes that they, too, deserve better than this? That our efforts continue to manifest futility. Well, unfortunately, its the students who will suffer another paralyzing blow of repercussions. I've just about approached the character limit for this thing, so I better wrap-up. To re-cap: medical school is challenging, costly, and physically and emotionally exhausting, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Trust, you'll get there too someday. Persevere. Roll with the punches. Lean on and be leant on by your fellow-classmates (something I valued the most about my experience at OSU-CHS). But with all that being said, your medical school experience should NOT: 1) Ignore your voice/constructive criticism, 2) Disregard empirical evidence that clearly displays an actively-bleeding problem 3) Leave you feeling helpless & at times completely on-your-own, and perhaps most importantly, 4) Set you up for failure. Thus, I'll end by restating the following: if you're serious about wanting to go to medical school...CONSIDER ALL YOUR OPTIONS. Oh, and after you get accepted, remember to "Do No Harm". =]
