This is what I learned when I applied to Irish Schools:
- excellent teaching
- good reputation in Canada and US
- well established
- close to North america (fly back more often)
- expensive (high Cost of living and Tuition)
- Only choice effectively is US after graduation (tough to stay in Ireland..but UK may be open)
- Relatively low physician to patient ratio (bad if you want to stay)
- Lecture style not PBL (bad for some ppl).
Anyone have any other points?
