My wife is a KCU student and the school takes great care of its students. She thinks the lectures, the people and the atmosphere are great! They prepare you very well for both board examinations, and they recently had a curriculum overhaul that drastically improved board scores (their COMLEX is 30 points above the national average for the class of 2018!)

The training I received at the school has served me well for the 40 years I have been in the military and in private practice. My training has been as good or better than docs from schools all over the country. I didn't know how well I was prepared until internship. I put my training up against interns from many MD and DO school and came out fine. I compete against docs from many school in my private practice and I have never been found wanting. My training was 40 years ago and it was great. I don't really know about the current training climate but I assume it is just as good as when I attended. The training one gets in any school is mostly the result of how well one works at it. All schools basically teach the same material.

This school has served my daughter well

Overall Rating:

This is not a school I would recommend. They are driven by money, not by student success. Many students say they wish they would have accepted an offer somewhere else or retaken the MCAT in hopes of getting accepted into a better school. The students literally walk into rotations clueless and unprepared. Its sad and embarrassing
