    why would US HS grads start pre-med in caribbean?

    Advertisements



    this may be in the wrong forum.......

    why would a recently graduated High School student start pre-medical sciences out of the United States?? im not seeing the benefit over a domestic university....

    premed at aua is 16 months. pre med at a university is 4 years. But dont let this 2 2/3 year time saver fool you because if you do pre-med at aua you are NOT guaranteed admission into the med program. you can also forget about any sort of undergrad degree and no other med school is going to accept you. The only positive side is AUA has partnered with some school in the states, i forget which one but it is on the website, and they will automatically accept you into their undergrad program for a real degree after u finish pre-med, which is not a bad deal.

    if u decide to do the pre-med program keep in mind some states require an undergraduate degree to get a medical licence.. NJ's licence board lists undergraduate degree as one of the requirements to apply. but there are many IMG's from india, where MBBS is done right out of HS... so i am not too sure how strict they are about it.. but it would be something to look into b4 making a decision.....

    Could you show me in NJ's (or ANY State for that matter) licensing regulations where they require an undergraduate degree for licensure?

    Thanks

    Tipton dont worry i already checked it out. The guy above is confused. The requirments for Jersey are 60 U.G. credits for licensure. and They dont want a transcript or anytype of proof or say it has to be a approved college granting those 60 credits on the form it just ask have u completed 60 pre-medical education. and u chek yes or No. then it just ask u if you had a class in Bio, Chem, Physics u can chek yes or no on any of those 3 classes and i dont think they will hold the license from you since u didnt have College Physics. LOL but you passed steps 1, 2, 3 ahahhahahhaha

    It's a common idea out there. I keep asking the question and not getting an answer from anyone who thinks an undergraduate degree (from the US or anywhere) is required for licensure in the US.

    I stand corrected, i looked over the application right now....

    I remember checking NJ and NY before starting AUA.. at that time i remember NJ listing it as one... but apparently i miss read..

    it looks like 60 approved credits seems to be enough...

    not true, it's not just a checklist. when you apply for nj licensure, they send out a form to your undergraduate college for transcripts for verification. and the form asks the college if you have passed a physics, chemistry, and bio class. SO THERE IS VERIFICATION FROM THE UNDERGRAD........IT'S NOT JUST A FORM..........

    how do i know? i have the form and i will be applying for a nj training license soon........

    but last i checked they said it is not required that you have taken a bio, chem, or physics class in undergrad to go to medical school as every school has different requirements for entry. It is widely Accepted that You have 60 Undergrad Courses completed even if they are all in business or english or just basic college classes.

    Again Tipton we have another Bluffer on the website i am gonna post the link for NJ lincensure the whole complete PDF form> Tipton this guy is making stuff up. PassUSMLEs needs to investigate before posting wrong information. THE NJ MEDICAL BOARD ONLY VERIFIES MEDICAL SCHOOL TRANSCRIPTS. Again there is NO FORM for Undergrad Verification This is done on the HONOR system. Which if you lie and they find out you could be banned from ever getting a license in NJ but they dont verify the U.G. Education. THis guy said they send out a form and ask for transcript verification ONLY TO THE MEDICAL SCHOOLS U ATTENDED NOT UNDERGRAD SCHOOLS. They dont send anything to undergrad schools asking them if u have taken Bio, Chem or Physics. I am posting the link at the bottom anyone is welcome to run through the forms. If U still believe your correct then Please SHOW US PROOF
