    Pros

    While physicians and patient care are outstanding, the administration world is awful. Low pay, very political stances on everything since it’s a state institution. Very hard to transfer to another department

    Pros

    Strong faculty provide cutting edge experiences in diverse scientific fields. Great graduate student community. Only one year of in-room classes.

    Cons

    Since it is a medical center, it does not have an undergraduate population. Experience with colleagues varies among departments. Not that many industry-related experience opportunities.
