    Houston has reasonably priced housing. The people are nice. It's an international city, so you'll meet people from all over the world. It's a great city for healthcare.

    Houston has several good museums, parks, biking trails, Discovery Green has lots of events, shopping at the Galleria, and a number of sports and concert venues.

    The Medical Center is close to Rice University, which has numerous restaurants. The Medical Center itself has restaurants both inside the hospitals and along the streets adjacent to the hospitals.

    Dorm Life

    I don't believe dorms are available. I believe off campus housing is available.

    Academic Rigor

    Students are expected to spend time in classes and at MD Anderson locations throughout Houston. It's my understanding that the program is like having a full time job.

    Academic Rigor

    a lot of classes require quizes every week and there is a fair amount of presentations you will have to do.

    Tips for prospective students

    make sure you completed all your prerequisites and have the classes you have taken validated by the school or you will have to re take some classes. keep in mind that if your program includes clinic time and you might not be able to work.

    great school if you are looking for a bachelors degree in programs that in other schools would only count as a certification. you will train in hospitals within the medical center and obtain a lot of experience.
