    Where is the proof? Please provide it. Because at the moment, your accusations are false.

    Here is the proof that this school cannot operate in St. Lucia since it has been reviewed and rejected for accreditation. I wish this school would stop lying to people about its status in St. Lucia. If they remain on the Island, the government will most likely shut them down.

    Apparently I was told that some schools including IAU are still under consideration. This section of the article states it as well "Schools which have been taking steps to ready themselves for accreditation will get a chance to gain this certification, as a CAAM-HP site visit is expected to come through in that regard."

    Most likely they lied again. This school was just recently visited and found unsuitable for accreditation. CAAMHP doesn't make site visits back-to-back. They give a notice of what the deficiencies are and expect them corrected before they would consider a second site visit. Since the school was outright rejected after the first review, the list of deficiencies were mostly likely too numerous and would take a few years to remedy. I doubt they can remedy their problems in time to get accredited before 2018.

    The school's explanation is pure nonsense.

    From st lucia online news about iau med school

    FROM ST LUCIA NEWS ONLINE

    Education Minister Dr. Gale Rigobert has described rumours that the International American University College of Medicine (IAU) is moving out of Saint Lucia as “categorically false and mischievous”.
    Dr. Rigobert comments comes weeks after another medical school, the Atlantic School of Medicine in Rodney Bay, moved its operations to Antigua and Barbuda.

    However, the minister said in a statement this morning, August 9, that the leadership of the IAU “had reason recently to clarify rumours that it was relocating to another Caribbean island”.
    Dr. Rigobert has acknowledged that the situation regarding accreditation of medical schools came to a head in April of this year, triggered by a letter disseminated by the ECFMG from the USA, regarding the eligibility of graduates of medical schools in Saint Lucia to be licenced in Saint Lucia.

    She said the rumour mill then went into “overdrive” with speculations rife about the status of medical schools and their graduates.

    “I have had several exchanges with the IAU and I am satisfied that the school is making every effort to secure accreditation,” she said in the statement.

    “The IAU has given me every assurance that it is not at this time contemplating relocation,” she said.
    According to Dr. Rigobert, the Ministry of Education has been working very closely with the IAU and other stakeholders to resolve the situation. Dr. Rigobert said she is confident that the IAU will rebound from the unwarranted onslaught of “misleading and mischievous pronouncements”.

    She went on to say that she is adamant that the ministry is “unwavering” in its commitment to ensuring high quality tertiary education in Saint Lucia. In that regard, she said the ministry and other stakeholders are agreed that “we ought to maintain high standards, preserve the reputation of Saint Lucia and guarantee the international comparability of degree programmes offered here in Saint Lucia”.
