    big decision

    Advertisements



    hello everyone. I am a canadian student looking to pursue a medical education in the caribbean. I currently have three schools i am considering but i am very worried about all the negativity I have come across in regards to them all. I am a mature student and already have a professional degree, so investing another 4 years without being able to guarantee a residency is very terrifying for me. I am considering St. Matthews, AUA and Ross. Any comments, positive or negative, in regards to general academic preparation, USMLE success, quality of teaching, quality of clinical placements would be greatly appreciated.

    Have you considered Saba? Based on what I've heard and what I've read from their residency match statistics, they have a significant number of Canadian citizens in their student body. Their grads also match into pretty decent programs from what I've seen (mostly university affiliated)

    NY is possible to practice in from any school

    Its Clinicals and could be residency years you would not be in NY for.

    AUC, SABA and AUA have NY approval for clinicals St. Matts? I'm not sure.

    I have to say one thing here, If you freak out about the MCAT, the USMLE is 100% harder of a test.

    Good Luck

    you asked a bunch of questions and I'm not sure that i can answer them all being only in my first semester here at AUA. I had many of the same questions before coming here but I cannot be more glad about choosing AUA. The school facilities are great and new, the professors are genuine and always willing to help, and as for success...well...I haven't taken the USMLE yet to say that it will be a breeze, but an AUA student this semester made a 262!! Therefore I have little doubt that AUA is preparing us to do well on the USMLE.
    P.S. You won't be alone, I know of students in my class that are Nurse Practitioners, Physical Therapists, and even a former College Professor (PhD) that taught Anatomy and Physiology at a D1 university.
