    AAIMS: The Real Truth

    Advertisements



    There are many on here who seek to sully the reputation of Aaims; some are disgruntled former employees, some embittered former students. The administration has chosen to abstain from responding to the barrage of diatribes written about them on this forum; they have chosen to take the high road and not dignify the unfounded rants of the school's many detractors. As a current student, however, I can't help but to take these insults personally, because to attack the institution of Aaims is to likewise discredit all who receive their education there. To be fair, it is true that in the beginning there were many challenges; administrative hiccups abounded as AAIMS was finding its footing. However, the majority of those issues have been corrected and I have personally seen vast improvements since the school's inception nearly 4 years ago.

    There has been much talk about AAIMS not having clinical rotations. That is a blatant and malicious lie: there are rotations available in Jamaica (at Maypen and Mandeville Hospital) and there are rotations available in the U.S. in the District of Columbia and Atlanta, Georgia, among other states. Those of us who have passed our USMLE exam have all been smoothly transitioned into clinical rotations in our preferred location of choice.

    The quality of the clinical rotations has been beyond satisfactory. Admittedly, we had to quickly rise to the occasion, as the transition to clinical rotations can be quite intense; however, we were all able to do so without issue. Most of our professors during basic sciences and now during clinical rotations at Maypen hospital were UWI trained and are UWI affiliated lecturers. It must be said that we are combined with cohorts of UWI students for these rotations and are able to hold our own among them. I must also point out that they too frequently complain about administrative errors and clerical oversights, despite UWIs solid and enduring reputation.

    I also noted the lamentations of students complaining that they had to do independent study to prepare for the USMLE exam; I am not sure why this is even mentionable. At every learning institution in the world students must do self study in order to prepare for their coursework. Why should AAIMS be singled out for something that is a well established and well accepted aspect of medical school curriculum and tertiary level academia in general? Furthermore, students are given 4 months of Kaplan online or live courses to aid in preparation for the exam; we are not simply left alone to flounder without guidance or instruction.

    It should also be pointed out that AAIMS has a functional clinic that sees real patients from the local community and gives students hands on clinical experience beginning during their first year. It has also begun a program of introducing USMLE formatted clinical vignettes to students in the POM/PBL courses, so that students are familiar with the question types early on. AAIMS has also recruited several full time professors, who are readily accessible and available to assist students with their studies. These are all things that were not present at the school's inception, but have been put in place as the school continues to establish itself.

    I have no agenda to promote when it comes to AAIMS, but I do think credit must be given when it is due. I try as best I can to be a just and impartial person, and to examine situations contextually. AAIMS is a relatively new school and every new school will experience its fair share of glitches and trials and errors during it's infancy. I have witnessed the institution improve and grow in leaps and bounds, and I now wear their symbol like a badge of honor on my white coat at the hospital. As I am a busy student, I do not have the time or opportunity to frequent this site and rebutt the slew of criticisms that I anticipate will come in response to this post, but if ever there was an objective and honest account of AAIMS, this is it. I took a leap of faith when I came to AAIMS, and it is one that is working out in my favor. If you talk to most of the school's active students, they will share similar accounts. Do not be deterred by the distasteful and unfavorable reviews of a select few students who spend their time spewing venom about AAIMS; I am very proud of the school AAIMS is becoming, I see the vastness of it's potential and I am look forward to witnessing the promise of its future. That is my truth about AAIMS.

    MR CHEERLEADER OR MR ADMIN OR WHO EVER YOU ARE
    THANKS FOR ADMITTING THAT THE THINGS THAT HAVE BEEN SAID ON VALUE MD ABOUT AAAIMS IS TRUE TRUE --- IN FACT AS TRUE AS JOHN 3:16!

    TO REFUTE YOUR GARBAGE
    1There are many on here who seek to sully the reputation of Aaims;

    AND THEY DO SO WITH MUCH MERIT, DONT THEY?

    2 some are disgruntled former employees,

    HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT? ARE YOU SAYING THAT THESE FORMER EMPLOYEES HAVE GOOD REASON TO BE DISGRUNTLED?

    3 some embittered former students.
    HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT? ARE YOU SAYING THAT THESE FORMER STUDENTS HAVE GOOD REASON TO BE DISGRUNTLED?

    STUDENTS WHO PAID THEIR MONET WHEN AAIMS HAD NO TRACK RECORD AND WERE MISTREATED FOR TWO YEARS AND LEFT AAIMS WITH NOTHING.

    4 The administration has chosen to abstain from responding to the barrage of diatribes written about them on this forum; they have chosen to take the high road and not dignify the unfounded rants of the school's many detractors.

    THE ADMINISTRATION CAN NOT DEFEND THE INDEFENSIBLE SIR AFTER ALL.. NO LIES HAVE BEEN PUT ON VMD ABOUT AAIMS. NONE WHATSOEVER!

    THE ADMINISTRATION? YOU MEAN THE POOR LEADERSHIP THAT SUPERVISED FOUR USMLE PASSES IN ALMOST FOUR YEARS

    YOU MEAN THE POOR LEADERSHIP THAT COULD NOT ANSWER ANY OF THE STUDENTS QUESTIONS ABOUT ANYTHING FOR SIX SEMESTERS? And which made rules in semester six and then changed them IN TYPICAL AAIMS WILLY NILLY SLAP DASH DON’T CARISH FASHION?

    5 As a current student, however, I can't help but to take these insults personally, because to attack the institution of Aaims is to likewise discredit all who receive their education there.

    WHO CARES ABOUT YOU? WHAT ABOUT THOSE IN THE FIRST CLASSEES THAT PAID THEIR MONEY WHEN NO ONE ELSE CAME TO AAIMS? WHAT ABOUT THE TEACHERS WHO CAME TO TEACH WHEN NO ONE ELSE WOULD COME TO TEACXH AT AAIMS. DO YOU KNOW ABOUT THAT?

    6 To be fair, it is true that in the beginning there were many challenges; administrative hiccups abounded as AAIMS was finding its footing.

    YOU CAN SAY THAT AGAIN AND THESE THINGS HAVE BEEN POINTED OUT HERE ON VMD ACCURATELY AND TRUTHFULLY

    7 However, the majority of those issues have been corrected and I have personally seen vast improvements since the school's inception nearly 4 years ago.

    SAYS WHO? WHAT ABOUT THOSE WHO WERE MISTREATED AND ROBBED ? ARE THEY BENEFIITING FROM THESE CHANGES? WHAT HAS BEEN DONE TO BENEFIT THOSE STUDENTS WHO WERE PIONEERS AND PAID THEIR MONEY AND HAVE NOTHING TO SHOW FOR IT?

    8 There has been much talk about AAIMS not having clinical rotations. That is a blatant and malicious lie:
    NOTE THE DATES WHEN IT WAS SAID THAT AAIMS HAD NO CLINICALS THAT WAS THE TRUTH AND THE WHOLE TRUTH AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH

    AAIMS WERE FORCED TO GET CLINICALS AND TO IMPROVE BECAUSE OF THE CONSTANT EXTERNAL PRESSURE PRESENTED HERE ON VMD

    there are rotations available in Jamaica (at Maypen and Mandeville Hospital) and there are rotations available in the U.S. in the District of Columbia and Atlanta, Georgia, among other states. Those of us who have passed our USMLE exam have all been smoothly transitioned into clinical rotations in our preferred location of choice.

    DO YOU KNOW THAT ORIGINALLY LOCAL STUDENTS WERE TOLD THAT THEY DID NOT HAVE TO PASS THE USMLE? DO YOU KNOW THAT THE RULES WERE CHANGED?


    9 Most of our professors during basic sciences and now during clinical rotations at Maypen hospital were UWI trained and are UWI affiliated lecturers.
    SO THEN AAIMS IS A CLONE OF UWI AND NOT THE PREMIER MEDICAL SCHOOL IN JAMAICA THEN

    It must be said that we are combined with cohorts of UWI students for these rotations and are able to hold our own among them. I must also point out that they too frequently complain about administrative errors and clerical oversights, despite UWIs solid and enduring reputation.

    THE PROBLEM AT AAIMS WAS NOT ADMINISTRATIVE ERRORS AND CLERICAL OVERSIGHTS IT WAS ABOUT A PACK OF WOMEN RUNNING THE SHOW! THE LADY WHO RUNS THE KITCHEN KNEW MORE ABOUT WHAT WAS GOING ON THAN THE STUDENTS OR THE LECTURERS.
    YOU CAN NOT DEFEND THE INDEFENSIBLE.


    10 Furthermore, students are given 4 months of Kaplan online or live courses to aid in preparation for the exam; we are not simply left alone to flounder without guidance or instruction. ARE YOU SERIOUS? THE FIRST MAN THAT PASSED USMLE AT AAIMS COMPLAINED ABOUT THE COURSE. KAPLAN COURSE IS WOEFULLY UNSATISFACTORY FOR PREPARING FOR USMLE. ASK ANYONE WHO HAS TAUGHT A KAPLAN COURSE HOW YOU ARE TRAINED, AND WHAT YOU CAN SAY AND WHAT YOUCAN NOT SAY

    11 It should also be pointed out that AAIMS has a functional clinic that sees real patients from the local community and gives students hands on clinical experience beginning during their first year.

    HURRAY THE FIRST COHORTS DIDN’T GET THIS
    IT WOULD SURPRISE YOU THAT OTHER SCHOLLS HAVE BETTER EXPOSURE THAN THIS


    12 It has also begun a program of introducing USMLE formatted clinical vignettes to students in the POM/PBL courses, so that students are familiar with the question types early on.

    YOU DO KNOW THAT THIS IDEA WAS SCOFFED AT IN THE FIRST SEMESTER WHEN BROUGHT BY A CERTAIN STAFF MEMBER

    13 AAIMS has also recruited several full time professors, who are readily accessible and available to assist students with their studies. These are all things that were not present at the school's inception, but have been put in place as the school continues to establish itself.

    SO YOU ARE ADMITTING THAT THE TRUTH WAS SPOKEN WHEN AAIMS WAS SAID TO BE THE ONLY SCHOOL IN THE WORLD RUN BY PART TIME TEACHERS

    ALL THE IMPROVEMENTS YOU ARE WITNESSING AT AAIMS HAVE BEEN THE RESULT OF THE CRITICISMS BROUGHT HERE ON VMD

    14 I have no agenda to promote when it comes to AAIMS, but I do think credit must be given when it is due. I try as best I can to be a just and impartial person, and to examine situations contextually.
    YOU ARE CONTRADICTING YOURSELF LIKKLE BOY

    15 AAIMS is a relatively new school and every new school will experience its fair share of glitches and trials and errors during it's infancy.
    AAIMS BEGUN WITH A PANTY WAIST GOVERNMENT- A WHOLE SET OF WOMEN WHO NEVER WENT TO MED SCHOOL MISTREATING THE DEAN WHO WAS THEIR POSTER BOY.

    16 I have witnessed the institution improve and grow in leaps and bounds, and I now wear their symbol like a badge of honor on my white coat at the hospital.
    ARE YOU ONE THAT GOT YOUR WHITE COAT TWO YEARS AGO BEFORE YOU FINISHED THE BASIC SCIENCE COURSE?


    WHAT ABOUT THJOSE WHO REALLY FINISHED THAT COURSE THEN AND WHO AR NOT IN CLINICALS.


    17 I took a leap of faith when I came to AAIMS, and it is one that is working out in my favor. If you talk to most of the school's active students, they will share similar accounts.

    WHAT ABOUT THE GOOD PIONEERING STUDENTS? DIDN’T THEY TAKE A LEAP OF FAITH TOO? THEY WERE ROBBED, AND PERSONS WHO ASKED QUESTIONS ON THEIR BEHALF WERE HATED AND RUN OFF.

    YOU ARE A SELFISH LIKKLE BOY OR ADMIN CHEERLEADER
    GO AND DO YOUR SCHOOL BOOK
    BUT YOU CAN NOT DEFEND THE INDEFENSIBLE

    TELL US WHY ONLY FOUR PASSES SINCE THE INCEPTION?

    AryaStark -Newbie

    RE AAIMS has also recruited several full time professors, who are readily accessible and available to assist students with their studies. These are all things that were not present at the school's inception, but have been put in place as the school continues to establish itself.

    Starky ma boy, AAIMS lists 15 staff members on its website
    Which of these 7 are full time?

    Peter Wellington, OD, MBBS, FRCS - Human Anatomy, Practice of Medicine

    Norman Day, MBBS, FRCS - Pathology - Practice of Medicine

    Stanhope Maxwell, MBBS, MSc. Dip.Derm - Practice of Medicine

    Everton McIntosh, MBBS, DM – Pharmacology

    Leighton Wynter, MBBS, DM – Pharmacology

    Doreth Garvey, MBBS, DM - Psychiatry, Neuropharmacology

    Sheila Campbell-Forrester, MBBS, MPH - Practice of Medicine
    Which of these 7 are full time? Tell us likkle boy who loves to tell lies

    Is Max Wellington BSc, MPhil, PhD - Molecular Medicine, Medical Genetics full time too?

    What about these stellar non doctors “ these full time too?
    Samson Omoregie, BSc, MSc, PhD - Applied Biochemistry

    Walter Omeally, BSc, MPA, Cert. Teaching - Communication Skills, Ethics
    Diane Robertson, Hon. PhD, Alt. Med, Professional Pharmacist - Complementary Medicine

    ***** Picking - PhD/MPhil Candidate, B.Sc, Dip. Herbal Med, Post Grad Dip.Communication - Complementary Medicine

    Starky, seems you are a teller of tall tales, ah lie?
    I guess things are really better, at least a gynaecologist is no longer teaching Neuroscience

    IN FURTHER RESPONSE TO AAIMS: The Real Truth

    MR CHEERLEADER OR MR ADMIN OR WHO EVER YOU ARE

    YOU SAID THAT …… The administration has chosen to abstain from responding to the barrage of diatribes written about them on this forum; they have chosen to take the high road and not dignify the unfounded rants of the school's many detractors.
    QUAE CUM ITA SINT…..since what you say is so (sarcasm) why is the Admin at AAIMS worried that as every cohort leaves to go study for USMLE that Admin is VERY WORRIED THAT NO NEW STUDENTSARE COMING TO AAIMS
    Why don’t you whip up the propaganda on face book?
    Why don’t you whip up the propaganda on the GLEANER?
    Why don’t you start another clinic elsewhere in St Elizabeth?
    Why don’t you fire your Deanette WHO NEVER ATTENDED MEDICAL SCHOOL?
    Why don’t you get more staff like the New Dean who can coach students for the USMLE in more subjects.

    MR CHEERLEADER OR MR ADMIN OR WHO EVER YOU ARE

    Your feeble attempt to contradict anything said here is not holding any water.
    The facts are simply that Admin is VERY WORRIED THAT NO NEW STUDENTSARE COMING TO AAIMS…..ah lie?

    your students know it they can see what is going on it is very obvious

    Skpe converstion on The early days at AAIMS by students who were there then, PART 1.

    Student A It was clear from the beginning that the top brass at AAIMS did not know what they were doing. They had not done it before or see it done before either, they could not do it, nor did they want any advice.

    Student B But look what has happened now? many innocent folk have suffered.Some are still suffering.

    Student A true like poor Louie Jamie who was supporting AAIMS with his posts on VMD, before he arrived on campus. He left with nothing. And he had the money to pay them.

    Student C Yeah he not poor like me.

    Student B The problem at AAIMS is jesse and company had no real say at AAIMS They had to refer everything also they have no guts to make any decisions

    Student C These figure heads, who all had to wait for feed back from Ram, included Watson, Robinson and her husband, Dean Jesse James and Ms Omeally and her brother were just ramping up their pensions Besides Dean Jesse James they dont know what they r doing registrar himself has no idea about medical education, and it seems that they don’t listen to him. They will pay for it in the long run if they not paying for it already.

    Student A true AAIMS is led by a selection of old retirees who were augmenting their pensions as administrators.

    Student C Amidst this motley bunch we had Dr Segree, who came for two and a half days every other week to teach us Anatomy, and a few other things. We also had Dr Wellington the surgeon who came on Fridays and did similarly, and best of all we had a doctor who called himself the big belly black boy from Barbados. (BBBBB).The BBBBB taught us Embryology, Cell Biology and Biochemistry

    Student B The fat man they ran away obviously loved medical students, and teaching them, and he was prepared to stand up for us, and standing for truth and principle.. He certainly had our backs, thats for sure. AAIMS saw him as a threat and hated him for trying to put them on the right path and for taking our questions and concerns to them . He was a very good Professor. He had a lot to offer

    Student A he was with out a doubt the best teacher at AAIMS ever. AAIMS now talking about some Prof Sreenathan is specialized in coaching medical students for USMLE in Gross Anatomy, Embryology and Neuroscience. The same fat man they ran away has so many students that have passed usmle and are in residencies The same fat man they ran away taught kaplan review in Pharm

    Student C Do you remember when Jesse had that pool boy Nevins telling the Bajan doctor when to teach .He would come to the dining room at 7;55 and tell the man he teaching at 8 am. Admin wanted him to leave. Robinson didn’t hire him, so she could not fire him. but she wanted to get rid of him lol he left when he was good a ready though

    Student B These jokers did not know when someone had their interest at heart. Nobody will ever do what the Bajan doctor did for them.They were really unappreciative. They were not looking out for our interest either. They were all about positioning themselves to make big bucks

    Student C THERE IS NO VISION AT AAIMS. None what so ever. INSTEAD INSTEAD OF FIGHTING THE BAJAN DOC THEY SHOULD HAVE BEEN FIGHTING GOVERNMENT FOR CLINICAL SITES FOR US THEN. But I know they had no plans for us. None whatsoever
    INSTEAD OF FIGHTING THE BAJAN DOC THEY SHOULD HAVE GIVEN THE BAJAN DOC THE cheap FLAT BED SCANNER AND BOOKS HE ASKED FOR AND LET HIM DO THE JOB HE SET OUT TO DO FOR US AND THE SCHOOL.

    Student A Remember when we had that MCQ on Nevins?
    The role of Nevins at AAIMS is
    A.POOL CLEANER
    B WARDEN
    C CHEATERS SUPERVISOR
    D LAWN CARE TAKER
    E ALL OF THE ABOVE

    Student B NEVINS WAS ONE OF THOSE BLACKS TO WHOM YOU MUST NOT GIVE POWR CAUSE IT GOES TO THIER HEAD.. Some blacks just cant handle power
    THE MAN NEVINS WAS A CLOWN ---INSTEAD OF BONDING TO THE MEN HE SOUGHT TO BEAT THEM WID A WHIP BUT JESSE EVEN GAVE HIM AUTHORITY OVER THE DR OR SO HE THOUGHT JESSE HAD TO BEG HIM TO SPEAK TO NEVINS AT ONE POINT. BUT WHY SHOULD HE SPEAK TO NEVINS? NEVINS IS NOT A DR AND HAD NOTHING TO SHARE WID THE DOC AND HE COULD NOT TEACH US ANY MEDICINE. HILARIOUS.

    Student A. WE COULD HAVE HAD A GREAT SCHOOL. It was never the same after baje left
    We had great times with the Bajan doctor man He used to teach us all sorts of things. Like the importance of the Pouch of Douglas.

    Student B TRUE MAN YES HE USED TO TEACH RELEVENT PHARM WID THE BIOCHEM We HAD NO OTHER TEACHER BESIDE YELLOW MAN THAT USED TO MEK SPORT SO AND STILL TEACH SO THAT YOU CAN REMEMBER THE JUICE
    I WILL NEVER FORGET THE DAY NICODEMUS WALKED OUT. SHE USED TO COME TO THE MASTER AT NIGHT LIKE IN JOHN CHAPTER 3 LOL

    Student A. THE BAJAN DOCTOR GAVE THE SCHOOL A VIBRANT START BUT I GUESS WHEN YOU EXCEL YOU ARE HATED SO HE HAD TO LEAVE. AFTER THAT FIRST TERM, THIS WAS ALL VERY DEPRESSING

    Student C. IN THOSE DAYS THEY DIDNT KNOW HOW TO GET A STUDENT, BUT THEY THOUGHT WE WERE REBELS BECAUSE WE ASKED PROPER PERTINENT QUESTIONS. AND THEY HATED US AND THE BAJAN TEACHER
    IM SO HAPPY I LEFT, BUT I GUESS THAT IS WHAT THEY WANTED
    AFTER 4 YEARS THEY STILL DONT HAVE IT YET.

    Student A Bunch of idiots.Nothing has ever caused me the amount of stress as AAIMS did

    Further rebuttal on AryaStark’s post

    AryaStark: There are many on here who seek to sully the reputation of Aaims; some are disgruntled former employees, some embittered former students.

    Rebuttal: My dear kind Sir, It seems to me that you seem to know former employees and former students who have every right to be disgruntled and embittered. I am sure that you do.

    AryaStark The administration has chosen to abstain from responding to the barrage of diatribes written about them on this forum; they have chosen to take the high road and not dignify the unfounded rants of the school's many detractors.

    Rebuttal: My dear kind Sir, It seems to me that the administration has paid you or bribed you or coerced you to come on VMD with this load of bovine patties. Why has the administration taken so long Sir? Did they think that we would get tired and run away? Or is it that the 15,000 hits on your school is really starting to bite. Why does AAIMS have many detractors Sir? Why does the administration not refute any of what you call “unfounded rants.”

    AryaStark: As a current student, however, I can't help but to take these insults personally, because to attack the institution of AAIMS is to likewise discredit all who receive their education there.

    Rebuttal: That is true no doubt. But when you make your bed you must lie in it. Right? You were warned first by Returning Resident, but you still attended or stayed, because you knew that you had to stay the course, as you could not take your silly credits anywhere? Those who left AAIMS had to start all over, just as Returning Resident predicted over two years ago. TELL ME SIR THAT THIS AN UNFOUNDED RANT

    AryaStark: To be fair, it is true that in the beginning there were many challenges; administrative hiccups abounded as AAIMS was finding its footing. However, the majority of those issues have been corrected and I have personally seen vast improvements since the school's inception nearly 4 years ago.

    Rebuttal: Sir your conscience has caused you to finally state the truth. We know that “it is true that in the beginning there were many challenges; administrative hiccups abounded at AAIMS.” We were there and suffered through them? Our questions were never answered , and after six semesters silly rules came on board. Poor Jamaican students had to pay money they did not have to go overseas to take an exam that Jamaican students were told at the very beginning that they would not ever have to take. An exam that we were not properly prepared for. If we were properly prepared why would we now have the super man mission impossible Dean who can coach students for al kinds of things? Sir are you just a clown, or are you a whole circus. Tell us truly Sir, why do you now decide to lie like this? What is acutely wrong at AAIMS that Admin got you to write this verbal diarrhea on VMD?

    AryaStark: There has been much talk about AAIMS not having clinical rotations. That is a blatant and malicious lie: NO IT WAS NOT there are rotations available in Jamaica (at Maypen and Mandeville Hospital) and there are rotations available in the U.S. in the District of Columbia and Atlanta, Georgia, among other states. Those of us who have passed our USMLE exam have all been smoothly transitioned into clinical rotations in our preferred location of choice.

    Rebuttal: If you check the gleaner, the date when clinicals were secured was last December – three years after AAIMS was claiming it is the premier medical school in Jamaica.

    AryaStark:I also noted the lamentations of students complaining that they had to do independent study to prepare for the USMLE exam; I am not sure why this is even mentionable. At every learning institution in the world students must do self study in order to prepare for their coursework. Why should AAIMS be singled out for something that is a well established and well accepted aspect of medical school curriculum and tertiary level academia in general?

    Rebuttal: Because AAIMS IS THE ONLY SCHOOL THAT RUNS WITH PART TIME STAFF AND GYNAECOLOGISTS TEACHING NEUROLOGY. SO YOU ARE ADMITTING THAT THE TRUTH WAS SPOKEN WHEN AAIMS WAS SAID TO BE THE ONLY SCHOOL IN THE WORLD RUN BY PART TIME TEACHERS

    ALL THE IMPROVEMENTS YOU ARE WITNESSING AT AAIMS HAVE BEEN THE RESULT OF THE CRITICISMS BROUGHT HERE ON VMD


    AryaStark :Furthermore, students are given 4 months of Kaplan online or live courses to aid in preparation for the exam; we are not simply left alone to flounder without guidance or instruction.
    Rebuttal: YOU SPEAK LIKE A FOOL NOW. DID YOU TAKE THE KAPLAN COURSE OR COMPARE THE KAPLAN BOOKS TO THE FULL COURSE.


    AryaStark :It should also be pointed out that AAIMS has a functional clinic that sees real patients from the local community and gives students hands on clinical experience beginning during their first year.

    Rebuttal: DO YOU KNOW THAT THERE ARE MANY SCHOOLS WITH OUT A FUNCTIONAL CLINIC THAT GET BETTER USMLE STEP I RESULTS? SO WHAT IS THE REAL ADVANTAGE OF SUCH CLINIC?
    WAS NOT THIS CLINIC STARTED WHEN AAIMS WAS STILL STRUGLING TO GET CLINICAL ROTATIONS?

    AryaStark: It has also begun a program of introducing USMLE formatted clinical vignettes to students in the POM/PBL courses, so that students are familiar with the question types early on.

    Rebuttal: Sir, don’t you know that AAIMS had a teacher that did this in all his classes and gave us exam banks that he had complied to familiarize us from day one. You know that the pantywaist leadership at AAIMS caused him to run away, do you?
    YOU DO KNOW THAT THIS IDEA WAS SCOFFED AT IN THE FIRST SEMESTER WHEN BROUGHT BY A CERTAIN STAFF MEMBER

    AryaStark: AAIMS has also recruited several full time professors, who are readily accessible and available to assist students with their studies. These are all things that were not present at the school's inception, but have been put in place as the school continues to establish itself.

    Rebuttal: Sir you obviously do not know your AAIMS history. The very first full time professor at AAIMS was always readily accessible and available to assist students with their studies, in class, out of class al day everyday any time we could go to him. Miss robinson hated his guts and she and others blamed him for everything at AAIMS.

    AryaStark :I have no agenda to promote when it comes to AAIMS,
    Rebuttal: You are a very big prevaricator! YOU ARE CONTRADICTING YOURSELF


    AryaStark : but I do think credit must be given when it is due.

    Rebuttal: AAIMS certainly didn’t think so because they caused its very best hard working teacher who was interested in the students to leave.

    AryaStark: I took a leap of faith when I came to AAIMS, and it is one that is working out in my favor.

    Rebuttal: Others took that leap of faith too. WHAT ABOUT THE GOOD PIONEERING STUDENTS? DIDN’T THEY TAKE A LEAP OF FAITH TOO? THEY WERE ROBBED, AND PERSONS WHO ASKED QUESTIONS ON THEIR BEHALF WERE HATED AND RUN OFF.
    Did it work out in their favor? I am talking about hard working students, from poor families.
    YOU CAN NOT DEFEND THE INDEFENSIBLE

    TELL US WHY ONLY FOUR PASSES SINCE THE INCEPTION?


    If you are coming from overseas try to get into one of the three UWI schools in Trinidad, Jamaica or Barbados. AVOID AAIMS AT EVERY TURN. ITS LIKE EBOLA OR AAIDS

    WHY UWI IS SUPERIOR TO AAIMS FOR PROSPECTIVE OVERSEAS STUDENTS

    1 UWI was established in 1948 as a nonprofit institution to provide training in medicine for the peoples of the 14 British West Indian colonies. Having successfully fulfilled this mandate, and having for decades exported well trained physicians to the USA and Canada, UWI has now expanded and embarked on attracting and accommodating students from North America and abroad.

    AAIMS was started in 2011 and can only boast of 4 USMLE passes in 4 years.
    COMPPARED TO UWI AAIMS JUST DOES NOT HAVE THE TRACK RECORD FOR YOU TO TAKE THE CHANCE AND WASTE YOUR MONEY.
    When you go to the race track, do you bet on the horse that is unknown, or on the horse that has won several times at different tracks?

    REMEMBER AT AAIMS, ONCE YOU REGISTER THERE YOU CANT TRANSFER OUT WITHOUT STARTING ALL OVER AGAIN . NO SCHOOL HAS BEEN TAKING AAIMS CREDITS AS FORETOLD FROM THE BEGINNING BY RETURNING RESIDENT

    2 The first class at UWI contained 33 members. ALL 33 of these original students graduated and served the purpose for which they were trained. Many of them went on to train several outstanding physicians after themselves excelling.
    After four years IT IS AN INDISPUTABLE FACT THAT NONE OF THE 11 STUDENTS WHO ENROLLED IN THE FIRST TWO CLASSES OF AAIMS HAVE COMPLETED THEIR STUDIES, AND ONLY 2 OF THESE WERE SUCCESSFUL IN THE USMLE STEP 1EXAM.
    CAVEAT EMPTOR. SOMETHING IS NOT RIGHT AT AAIMS.

    3 AT UWI CLINICAL ROTATIONS ARE GUARANTEED FOR ALL ITS MEDICAL STUDENTS AT ALL THREE OF IT SCHOOLS. THIS IS NOT SO AT THE CALLED “ PREMIER MEDICAL SCHOOL IN JAMAICA” PREMIER AT WHAT EXACTLY YOU NEED TO ASK? PRODUCING 4 USMLE STEP 1 PASSES IN 4 YEARS?

    4 The CAAM-HP at its meeting on October 11-12, 2013 FOUND THE FOLLOWING PROBLEMS
    • The smaller number of students than the original targets may have financial implications.
    • There needs to be established a system of internal tracking of in course results so that overall progress as well as the present individual progress can be monitored.
    In addition, the meeting requested that information be provided regarding the schedule of rotations for 2013 and the number of passes on the last sitting of the USMLE.
    PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS OUGHT TO BE WARY OF ATTENDING A FLEDGLING MEDICAL SCHOOL THAT IS FINDING IT DIFFICULT TO ATTRACT STUDENTS. ONE OF THE FORMER VERY SUCCESSFUL OWNER OF A FEW OFSHORE SCHOOLS DETERMINED THAT TO BREAK EVEN, THESE STUDENTS MUST HAVE A MINIMUM OF 90 PAYING STUDENTS.

    Arya Stark Sir,

    Here are some facts about the early days.
    We have so much Skype “footage” between some of us, who get together to reminisce from time to time.
    We mean no harm, we just want to share our experiences

    STUDENT C : EVEN THE JAMAICAN FIGURE HEADS DIDNT CARE ABOUT THEIR FELLOW JAMAICAN JUST BECAUSE THEY ASKED REASONABLE QUESTIONS THAT THEY COULD NOT ANSWER AND THAT THEY TOOK THREE YEARS TO SOLVE

    STUDENT B. YOU MUST REMEMBER THAT THEY HAD NO PLANS FOR JAMAICANS IN THIER SCHOOL BUT USED THEM TO GET MONEY TO KEEP THE SCHOOL GOING UNTIL THE OVERSEAS STUDENTS WOULD COME

    STUDENT A. they were not about students, they were only about getting us registered and getting our money--then that was it, it was all over.

    STUDENT B. AAIMS WAS STUPID THEY SHOULD HAVE LOOKED OUT FOR THE FIRST TWO CLASSES AND HELPED THEM ALONG. ESPECIALLY IN THOSE DAYS WHILE THEY DIDNT HAVE CLINICALS AND WE WERE PAYING OUR MONEY IN FAITH

    STUDENT A. as Jamaicans the Admin should have been seeking the interest of jamaicans especially the first cohort who took the risk to help the school get started

    STUDENT C the Admin were/ are not people’s people so they could not appreciate a people’s people like the BBBBB who was seeking to solve our problems When he was relating students needs and problems to them, he was seen as agreeing with or complaints instead of seeking to solve real issues at the school that was hindering us.

    STUDENT B. Admin had no regards for people like BBBBB. He was seen as a rebel. In fact most of the first cohort were seen as rebels except for the women in the class

    STUDENT B. THEY HAVE HAD GOOD UWI TRAINED DRS FROM THE BEGINING, BUT THEY DID NOT LOOK OUT FOR THEIR INTEREST. THEY COULD NOT SEE THAT THEIR INTEREST WAS US- THEIR STUDENTS. THEY COULD NOT SEE THAT THATS HOW YOU POSITION YOURSELF TO MAKE BIG BUCKS

    STUDENT C look at the number of good folk who have left AAIMS. Segree, James, Ms Baker Ms omealy. the BBBBB, the Nutrition teacher with the sweet smile


    STUDENT B. I left AAIMS 2 years ago, but it seems that the questions asked by Jamaican students are still unanswered. Can’t say that I am surprised a bit.

    STUDENT C WE MUST UNDERSTAND THAT THE WORLD OF OUR DAY FAVORS THE MEDIOCRE
    WHY DIDNT JAMES BECOME A PROFESSOR AT UWI? WHY DOES HE ONLY HAVE A DIP BAC OR WHATEVER HE IS MEDIOCRE.

    STUDENT A AAIMS likes the mediocre – folk like the EXECUTIVE DEAN, the EX DEAN
    They have no regards for people like us


    STUDENT C WHILE THEY DIDNT HAVE CLINICALS ANYWHERE WE PAID OUR FEES IN HOPE AND IN IN FAITH

    STUDENT A Nobody remembers that BECAUSE WE WERE PAYING FEES

    STUDENT B MAN WE WERE CONSIDERED REBELS FROM THE START BECAUSE WE ASKED QUESTIONS. OR HAD OUR QUESTIONS ASKED ON OUR BEHALF . ONLY FOLK IN FIRST GROUP NOT CONSIDERED REBELS WAS THE WOMEN.

    STUDENT A The AAIMS admin are not people people so they could not appreciate a people’s people like the BBBBB was sincerely seeking to solve problems by relating the students needs and problems to the Admin. Admin saw him as agreeing with students complaints instead of seeing him as seeking to solve real issues that existed. He was not only drawing a salary but was looking forward by employing his knowledge and experience gleaned by having been around.

    STUDENT A to this chap who is seeking to rebut the truth we have put on value med to warn folk about AAIMS, I WOULD LIKE TO ASK YOU A FEW QUESTIONS
    1 Sir were you one of the students sitting in darkness when the lights went out for hours. Does this still happen?
    2 Sir were you there when the Gynacologist who taught Neurology used to have to bring his own generator/transformer so that he could teach his classes?
    3 Sir were you there when the students had to carry water by bucket when the water goes for a week at a time? Does this still happen?
    4 Sir were you there when the bill was not paid for the internet, and you had no internet for the whole weekend and you could not communicate with friends, family or download anything Does this still happen?
    5 Sir has the level of stupidity in the leadership improved one iota since the school began?
