    so many questions!!!

    Advertisements
    Our members don't see this ad
    I am getting bombarded with soo many MUA questions. Of course I am going to answer all questions as truthfully as I know. But I have my own questions in which I am still waiting for the school to reply to me. So I am not to sure why the school is making us give them soo much information about our clinical rotations, since we are not getting our own answers from the school. HELLO TO ANYONE OUT THERE, IF YOU CAN TELL THE SCHOOL TO REPLY TO OUR EMAILS.. PLEASE DO SO. I DON'T NOT CARE TO KEEP CALLING AND BEING TOLD THAT THE ENTIRE STAFF IS TAKING THE DAY OFF!!! I DO NOT HAVE ALL KINDS OF MONEY TO BE CALLING THE SCHOOL, MAILING IN MY OWN EVALUATIONS, AND PAY FOR INTERENT SO THAT I CAN GIVE THE SCHOOL A MINUTE TO MINUTE REPORT OF WHAT I AM DOING SO THE SCHOOL WON'T FINE ME. If anyone wants to dispute what I am saying, and tell me that I am saying wrong. Please do not respond back UNLESS YOU ARE IN CLINICAL ROTATIONS, because no offense YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH THE FEELING OF ABANDONMENT WE ARE FEELING, now that we are no longer on the island.

    are you truly being abandoned or are you afraid of being alone? On the island, we had the professors to "fall back on" but in clinicals, we have no one but our knowledge; But then again, is not that what our attendings, residents, and fellow students are for? Instead of complaining on this forum.. get together with your fellow colleagues from MUA, and do group mailings and emails to the school and/or do it through the GMC group; OR ask other FMGs how they communicate with their schools; find solutions... to your problems AS YOU WOULD WITH THE PATIENTS THAT YOU ARE CARING....

    Hey I am in clinicals, but not with MUA-Belize. I honestly feel that your problem came way before clinicals and has a lot to do with the school you chose. If I were you, I would transfer to MUA-Nevis where you will undobtedly have more support from your school.

    It is a small sacrifice of time for the pleasure of support that Dr. S and her staff can't provide.

    hmm

    md90... I found what you said to be humours, it is pretty obvious that you have not started your rotations yet. That would be why I said if you aren't in your clinicals then please to not say otherwise. IT IS ABANDONMENT (definition: to withdraw one's support or help from, especially in spite of duty, allegiance, or responsibility; desert). If myself and many other clinical students have the same complaints of getting no response from the school in regards to our emails and phones, what would you call that? We are students looking for answers, in which in normal circumstances the school should easily be able to answer. Do you have any idea how much students are being asked in clinicals to hold the administrations hand, because they lack communication with GMC? Almost all of us are hoping that at least one students gets answers so that we can tell the rest. So your pathetic idea of getting a group going doesn't work when we all need are answers from the school!!!

    thanks acetre

    Thanks for the comment acetre.. I have had many people tell me the same and ask me why I don't transfer. I don't care to transfer cause although my problems are with administration, which is a big problem I know. But I would like to graduate and get a residency position with MUA-Belize recognition because of the professiors that I had. I think the professiors deserve to get some credit. I hope that with many, but the few that are wanting to graduate with MUA-Belize want the school to say "yes we have graduates" so that the school can build and increase their enrollment. In all honesty the professiors that I had were great, and I guess because of that I am willing to deal with administration. Its messed up but I guess, even though the administration lacks loyality to the students, the students that have stuck around do have loyality to the professors.

    sweetness... you are a contradiction.. you say that you want to stay at MUA-Belize so that you can graduate for the credit of the professors, to build and increase the enrollment. By bringing your disputes into the forum, you are doing the opposite; first, it's one of the professors who is in charge of the clinical rotations so you are basically saying that the professor is doing a lousy job; NO POTENTIAL STUDENT wants to go to a school (according to you) that is NOT supporting the students. These forums are mainly visited by the current students of the school(s) or/and potential students; and also you say in that you don't have the money to pay for phone calls, mail, and internet re: school business BUT you have the money to place your disputes into the forum??!!?? WHAT IS YOUR "TRUE" AGENDA???

    Its really time for you to start your clinical rotations. From the moment you will apply for rotations you will start seeing the problems. I don't really have to say anything about agenda, I made myself clear about my agenda. Looking for answers and trying to make the school better. As for me contraindicating myself.. I put professors before administration. It is not my fault there aren't enough staff to make both seperate, but when I graduated Dr. N just entered admin and Dr. R wasn't teaching. So really stop jumping to conclusions. I have no reason to bash the school, cause I respect all the professiors that I had (and to make it clear so you can understand again, none of them was part of admin when I had them). Its funny how its the ones that aren't in rotations that are giving descriptions of the school, and are the ones getting frustrated. Exactly what is known about rotations, residency, licensure, and accredation? I tell you what is known.. NOTHING!!! Nothing till you get closer to these situations.. but I will tell one good thing about the school on top of other point I have made in the past. With the school having their own school, no matter how big/small or made/unmade it is, the fact that it is one its own property is a good thing. NOw my question, why is it that no one that defends the school and getting made at all those make truthful comments about the school haven't made any comment about this issue. You know why? Because they don't know how this really helps...haha

    I Used to be @ MUA-Belize

    Sweetness, I used to be @ MUA-belize until I saw the light. You and your colleagues are not responsible for the credit of the professors. They have lived their lives and have made the best decisions for them.

    One needs to understand that MUA-belize is a business first (and a crappy one at that) their loyalty is not with the students. It's with the green stuff that you give them for each semester. Now, While you are going through your clinical hell with your other colleagues, Dr. S is probably somewhere on another beach in another country sippin' on Mi-Tayes or trying to find out where her estranged husband is.

    She showed it then, and she's showing it now that she lacks the ability to shoulder responsibility when it counts on student's behalf. Dr. S (BKA the administration) is a master at selling dreams...And I'm sorry to say you bought one. It's almost like buying a brand new top-of-the-line Mercedes that doesn't have an engine.

    When you are in school you do it for yourself and your loved ones, not a school. Fortunately for you, you haven't gone to far where it's too late to make a switch. And I think you owe it to yourself to do so. I don't want you to promise me you will, you have to promise yourself before your academic career is derailed, and you become the laughing stock of all who said you'd never make.

    acetre

    P.S. It's amazing how I am doing all my rotations in the UK, but I am able to contact my school in a moment's notice around 4 times a week. There is better out there. You owe it to yourself to find it fast!!!

    why?

    Why "air" your anger and frustrations on the forum? I'm not 100% satisfied with the school either. There are "things" that I'm unhappy with re: the administration of MUA. I'm not so naive to think that the school is "perfect." (please read sticky note on this forum for potential students). Like it was said before, medical school is a business... every school would love to see MUA Belize fail; why? One less competition. MUA Belize needs students BECAUSE we need money... more students, more power to us as students. When the student population grows, the school grows with more staff and professors, more clinical sites... it's basic economics. It's easy to "ignore" a handful of students compared to "bowl" of students. Both of us want to see MUA Belize be a success...

    Potential students... we do have our problems whether it be in Belize or in clinicals; We also have positives that will help you to achieve your "dream." As "sweetness" said, the campus is owed by the Serslands BUT so is the land; the professors are excellent... all but one are MDs and that is an advantage to the students... means more clinical applications for you; Kaplan course is integrated into the academics.. from the third semester; There are "distractions" on the island to allow you to "de-stress" from studying and/or exams. For more on my thoughts... please read the sticky for potential students...
