    USAT-University of Science, Arts, and Technology in Montserr? Is this a legit school?

    Hello everyone, I need some help. I am a FNP wanting to go to medical school and I heard about USAT in Montserrat from another fellow NP. She is attending that school with monthyl lectures to the Miami campus. She has not reached the clinical science rotations yet. Has anyone ever graduated from that school and was accepted into residency in the US? Did they do their clinical science rotations in the US? Are they practice in the US? I have seen some news about this school around 2003 but none that is current today. Thanks for you help.

    Go to TMBE website, type in Hemberto zepol (spelled backwards on purpose), and you can see that he’s a USAT grad, finished a FP residency in Texas and is Board Certified. Very misleading! ��

    To Irb1126; I would recommend the same to everyone, contact every school you’re considering, compare the location, cost, attrition rate etc, then try to talk to actual students and graduates of each. That will give you the best real-life info to base your decision on. Remember that the match rate for IMG’s is just over 50% total, US IMG’s are higher, but many don’t get matched first time.

    This is what is the ECFMG's website says about this school. Go there and find out for yourself. Going to a school that is about to lose its eligibility with ECFMG is just plain foolish. You want to go there, that's your choice!

    • Note: As of January 1, 2019, students and graduates of this medical school with a graduation year of 2019 and later are not eligible to apply to ECFMG for ECFMG Certification, which also renders them ineligible to apply to ECFMG for the United States Medical Licensing Examinations (USMLE) as a step toward ECFMG Certification.


    • Currently, students and graduates of USAT are subject to enhanced procedures that must be met in order to be eligible to apply for ECFMG Certification related services, including but not limited to: ECFMG Certification, USMLE examinations that lead to ECFMG Certification, and Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS®) Support Services. ECFMG will provide information and instructions to applicants upon receipt of application.T

    I find it a sad tragedy that with all the revenue these schools make over the years, they can't sink it into an infrastructure that would lift it to the level of being appropriately accredited. Such myopia and piss poor management! Unfortunately, these Caribbean for profit schools are driven by one thing......$$$$. Please be careful!

    ECFMG is like God, they do whatever they want to and are accountable to no one! An obvious distinction; they’re not infallible.

    Apparently some Caribbean medical schools are obtaining accreditation from the Irish Accreditation Commission on Colleges of Medicine (ACCM) which is acceptable to FAIMER. https://www.faimer.org/resources/dor...ittsnevis.html

    Also, St. Kitts and Nevis Accreditation Board (SKNAB) is acceptable to FAIMER the point being, not all Caribbean schools need CAAM-HP accreditation to be acceptable to ECFMG!

    ECFMG is doing its job by eliminating bad actors who don't play by the same rules as everyone else. It's not everyday that they disqualify schools or their graduates. But when violators come to light, they are disqualified. I don't see what you describe as "God" like behavior!

    Maybe the author has already figured it out since the post has been made in 2012.
