    California Approval and New York

    Advertisements



    Any update on California. Is it true that NY is giving AUA and all the other Carib schools a hard time? Just wondering how things stand now that the new campus is up and running. Thanks

    State budgetary cuts?

    It's my understanding (and I admit I don't have any source I can point my finger at) that budget cuts at both the NY Board of Education and California Medical Board means that those states can't afford to do any reviews at this time. These reviews are very expensive, as the boards have to send teams to basic science sites in the Caribbean and to all the sites students do clinical rotations in the US. The review can take a couple of years. I don't think NY has become anti-Caribbean, just hurt financially.

    If this is true, then it might mean years before new schools are approved. If someone has better information, then I'd appreciate it.

    I always thought the schools paid for the site visits too, but not being a school administrator like you are I never confirmed it. Thank you. As I said, the budget problems were something I heard about, but didn't have a reliable source - perhaps it has to do with paying medical board staff or something.

    My intention was give an alternative theory to approval delays instead of just bashing the schools or their administrations, since this is a bigger problem than just AUA. If anyone can confirm or dispell this issue it would be appreciated.

    the NY state board has a mandatory visit of all of AUA's hospitals annually to make sure we remain up to par. i was asked to meet with them a few months ago and discuss everything they wanted to about the school from financial aid to the island to clinicals.

    it turns out that every caribbean school is going through the same stuff as AUA. big shocker there

    Ok. To which delay are you referring?

    The NYS medical board technically has to approve your application to do rotations in NYS before you do them (even if your school is NYS approved). But, if they take forever, you can do your rotations anyway and then call them and tell them you're sorry and they'll tell you that it's ok... It's one of those policies that simply isn't enforced.

    Not sure why a "budgetary issue" would ever be a problem for State

    Clinical sites are inspected annually.
