"SMUSOM teachers and attendings have taught me so much and I could not be happier with the training and guidance I have received. The clinical coordinators really do work with you to give you the best experience possible and it shows."

"St. Matthew's small class sizes provided me the opportunity to work very closely with my classmates and professors. I do not believe I would have excelled in my studies in the manner I did had it not been for the support from my professors and colleagues along the way."

"The way that St. Matthew’s teaches medicine is perfect for me. They go over all concepts in detail, making sure you understand the material. The professors are always available and I was able to see them whenever I had a question. This wasn’t true in my other school, and the small class size, mentor based experience for me is just a much better way to learn medicine."
