    CONFLICT IS BREWING between the two offshore medical schools in Barbados.

    The three-month-old Washington University of Barbados (WUB) is accusing the American University of Barbados (AUB), which has been operating here for six years, of engaging in a smear campaign against WUB and “stealing” its students.
    The AUB has denied the claims and said its sole focus was on enhancing the school’s brand and promoting Barbados.
    An upset G V, chief executive officer of WUB, which is located at Casa Grande Hotel, St Philip, said that since a video surfaced three weeks ago of their former dean complaining about certain situations at the school, messages had been circulating on social media bearing the name of an official of the AUB and carrying its logo, saying that WUB was a fake medical school.

    THE UWI’S Cave Hill Campus is closely monitoring reported attempts by the American University of Barbados (AUB) Medical School to get the green light to have its students attend training classes at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, even though the school is not yet accredited.

    The UWI’s medical faculty is the only institution that has accreditation to teach medicine here, and has an established affiliation with the QEH. AUB set up school in Barbados five years ago and while it is registered it cannot receive accreditation until students have graduated.
    However, medical sources reported that in recent times the AUB, located at Silver Sands, Christ Church, had been making a serious push to have its students involved in the QEH clinical clerkship programme because many of them from India and Nigeria had no visas to do internships at affiliate hospitals in the United States.

    Medical school to open clinic

    The American University of Barbados (AUB) is planning to open a free clinic at its Silver Sands, Christ Church complex in September.
    “The clinic will handle the range of health problems other clinics do and we will also be delivering free medicine,” AUB president Meesam Ali Khan told the MIDWEEK NATION recently. “We will treat whoever comes in. We will be in a position to do CAT (computerised tomography) scans and MRIs (magnetic resonance imaging).”
    Doctors attached to the university will offer their services to the clinic.
    “We want to be more than just a university that trains doctors,” Khan said. “We want to give back to Barbados, which is something done at our associate Era’s Lucknow Medical College in India.”
    UAB founder and chief executive officer Dr Gary Barr told a medical conference here last weekend that Era’s Lucknow Medical College had a 950-bed hospital and treated more than 2 500 patients free of cost daily.
    Both Barr and Ali told the media that AUB and its students were becoming increasingly involved in local outreach programme, working with agencies such as the Diabetes Association and the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Barbados.
    The AUB was set up here as an offshore medical school two years ago. It offers four- and five-year MD degree programmes. Courses cost between $10 000 and $15 800 per semester.
