    AUC vs SABA (which program is better)

    Advertisements



    Hey Guys,


    I have been accepted by both schools. AUC wants to to take 1 physics class before I come. Im a Canadian student but i don't care about getting back to Canada. Id prefer to move to the states and do my residency there and live there.


    So at this point I need to decide if AUC is worth taking another summer class for. Island conditions don't really matter to me either. i just want to attend the school Id be more likely to succeed (pass/graduate) in and be less stressed with course work. Both seem to have similar residency acquisition rates when it comes to the state.


    Please Advice!
    Thanks Again

    Both will take you where you need to go. The difference in education is minimal as the step 1 pass rates for both are > 90%. Check the hopsital-affiliations to make sure they have ACGME-approved rotations (green book rotations) ideally in the specialty & location/region of your choice. Moving arround during rotations can get quite expensive. Rotating in non-ACGME rotations may impact your ability to apply to residencies in CA. You are also missing out on the ability to network with potential programs. You are already at a disadvantage as a FMG that needs visa (order of preference for some program directors are US-MD > US-DO > US-IMG > FMG). Do your research and pick the one that will give you the best chance of matching in the speciality of your choice.

    I'm skeptical about these pass rates, as not everybody passes on their first attempt and some people delay their exams. You should look at the amount of people graduated from the school and got matched. That's what you need look at before considering a medical school.
