    Pros

    There are a lot of opportunities for health/healthcare research and work at Rutgers.

    My program seemed underdeveloped and not taught at the level most graduate students would expect. Additionally, there was a lot of bureaucracy to deal with when resolving any issue since Rutgers is so big.

    Excellent Faculty but Turning into a Med School with an attached University

    Apr 23, 2021 - Professor in New Brunswick, NJ

The highest academic leadership is dominated by people tied to the medical profession
