Hello all, I am considering the AUA med school, and was just wondering if anyone can elaborate on the situation of the clinicals? First of all, is there a long wait time after one passes his/her USMLE to begin clinicals?
I read somewhere on valuemd, that if clinicals opened up for a person, they may be greenbook or non-greenbook, and if that person chose not to take the spot b/c it was non-greenbook, he/she would be fined, or have to pay anothers semester's worth of tuition? Is any of that close to true? I have a feeling it is not, but I just wanted to bring it up.
Sticking with the greenbook vs. non-greenbook clinicals, how difficult is it to get greenbook clinicals?
Has anyone noticed any medical students taking more than 4 years to graduate, or missing a residency match, because of any problems with the clinicals?
I know AUA has had problems in the past, but due to the new campus opening and all, has that impacted the students for the better, in terms of clinicals?
I would like to go to AUA, I like Antigua, it is a much more modern island than some of the others that have med schools. If any current students could do it over again, would they still choose AUA, or go elsewhere? I appreciate any info.
