Latrobe man's medical school is probe target - Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
Dear fellow future-doc,
Please let me know of any credible online distance learning pre-medical program that gets me accepted into medical schools in the Caribbean?
I recently had some leg surgeries and thus have to put my bachelor degree in economics program on hold. I won't be able to attend schools physically for the next 10 months or maybe more.
That is why I was so happy when I found out about St. Theressa (st. kitts & nevitts) affiliation with The Warnborough College UK (which offer Diploma in Pre-Medical Studies by Distance Learning)
This link below from St. Theressa, then click on pre-med
SAINT THERESA'S MEDICAL UNIVERSITY -- Dual-Degree Program
Do you know anything about this program? If you do, please let me know what carribean med schools besides St. Theressa also accepting students taking their premed online from said college. Do you currently do or had finished online premed program? Once I obtain the diploma with high GPA. would St. Theressa accept me into their med study or would they still need my MCAT score? I want to go to Caribbean med schools that don't require the MCAT components. What's your view on this.
After I obtain my medical degree, I would not necessarily want to practice medicines in Canada or USA even though I am a Canadian citizen. I will go to a country in the the Asia Pacific and study specilization in Cosmetic Surgery with my uncle- who is a famous cosmetic surgeon there.
My view is if you are a Cosmetic Surgeon, it's your grasp of beauty & hands eye coordination that is more important than what you have to know as opposed to being a medical researcher. That is why I want to graduate as an M.D. the earliest & start my specialization as soon as possible. Practicing on actual patients will hone my skills much better than doing an M.D. program for 6 or 7 years but stressing on general medicine, and thus has little impact on my "craftmanship" as a cosmetic surgeon, so to speak.
I haven't applied into the online premed program yet, I want to find out more information before I do. Thank you for sharing information.
P.S. Just a little background, I am in 2nd year of bachelor of economic, I don't want to go back to uni. to finish that program, giving 2 more yrs, and at the end knowing I still have to compete with millions other B.A. economics graduate for a decent job. My position is shaky because if I don't have this bachelor degree, med schools would see me as a highschool graduate online. That is why I would prefer to do well on the online premed program instead. please give me advice. Yours trully,
