Does the school offer a mentoring program for students with children? Sort of. We have a COMtrade program. It is like a big brother/big sister program. We match new students with first year students and we try and put married/married with kids with first year students that are married/married with kids together.

What maternity leave options are available to women students? Students may take a leave of absence. They should check with student services for all procedural aspects of such a request.

Please describe any other options or services available for students with families and/or pregnant or nursing mothers. We have a very supportive faculty, staff and student body. Everyone pulls for one another and the competition is healthy. It is the students' against the material, not student against student. This lenads to a "we are in this together" approach to the medical program.

Average number of class hours per day: We have two curriculums. It will vary. Anywhere from 4 to 8 hours a day.

Average number of patient contact hours each day: In the first twi years there are approximately 20+ hours a month (this includes early clinical contact and simulated patient experiences).

Does the school offer (formally or informally) the opportunity to extend the second two years (clinical) of medical school over three or more years? No

Does the school offer any 'family friendly' residency opportunities?. If so, please describe. - Not aware of any but I do know that they try to be accommodating to students needs when looking at GME.

Does the school offer part time or job share residencies? Not aware of any.
