As Director of Pre-Health Professional Programs, Suzanne Murphy has witnessed firsthand why USciences acceptance rates to medical school are exceptionally high. "There's an open door policy here. If students need help, all they have to do is ask for it. Our environment is supportive, rather than competitive. And our faculty to student ratio allows much more personal attention." Academics and attitude both make a difference, according to Dr. Murphy, "Students come back and tell me how well prepared they are in medical school. They have a definite advantage."
