    there are no accreditations for off-shore medical schools like US schools have the LCME. i'm not sure what you're looking for or why since the previous two posts have been complaining.

    Who do students complain to

    If there are unfair practices etc at AUA, who can the students go to or complain to. AUA has to report to who?

    What unfair practices? I don't think AUA reports to anyone outside the school.


    You can try writing a letter to the Dean of Basic Sciences on the island, and if that isn't helpful to one of the Deans in the New York office.

    Unfair practices at AUA

    I met a young lady at a conference in NY. She informed me of her situation where she attended AUA and passed all her courses but is not allowed to take the USMLE. This person was clearly upset and expressed that she attended and completed a medical school in the US but did not take the USMLE so she was informed by the staff of the admissions committee at AUA that they would sponsor her to take the exam in order that she could graduate. She paid tuition for a prep course for the exam at the school but while attending the class she was asked to teach. When the time came for her to take the USMLE she was told by the school that she was not allowed to take it. She was told that she was not allowed to take the exam because she had failed the semester because she did not teach. The question is are students required to teach at this school, she was not aware of this. How could they tell her that she had failed the semester when her transcript clearly indicates that she had passed everything at her previous school. It appears to me that AUA had just taken her money.

    gandrea,

    Could you elaborate some more about the situation. It is odd that she did not sit for her step if she passed everything. If she didn't pass everything and was dismissed, that could explain her going to AUA. Also what was the agreement with AUA? Was the prep course a special agreement?
    Why did she turn down the offer to teach if she was just in a prep course? Lastly, for people who transfer in you usually are asked to sit for 5th semester or do something so that the school could vouch for you.

    I have friends in the US schools that had problems and the school bent over backwards to help them pass. That is why I find it odd that the US school she finished from wouldn't let her sit for the step.

    gandrea, i think its pretty clear that she did not tell you the whole story. you cannot complete ANY medical school in the states without completing the steps. they will let you start 3rd year clinicals in the states while waiting for your score..... but if you fail, they will pull you from the rotation. so its simple, she did NOT complete her medical school in the states...... you were mislead by her.
