    My Opinion

    Advertisements



    I think the problem is most carib med schools accept bunch of slackers. The majority of carib med schools give you the opportunity to become a doctor. Now if you cannot handle the medical school curiculum or if you cannot pass shelf exams or USMLE step I then that's your problem. Sometimes I wonder why US medical students do not complain as much as carib med students. The aswer is they are not bunch of slackers. try to study hard and do not complain so much about shelf exams, faculty or ...... no matter what medical school you attend you have to study hard so just try to focus and study hard.

    While I suspect you meant to reply to an existing thread instead of posting your own, I completely agree. It's whatever you make of it. I already know people that have flunked out or couldn't hang, and I have a list somewhere of a large amount of very successful Carib grads. All the resources are there.

    Actually, US students from what I've seen here back home are just as lazy, slacking, whining, have the general "don't give a s**t" attitude while still FAILING step 1.

    I've got a friend over at a state school and he's repeating step 1, I asked him the other day how many are retaking it, he told me something like 12 or so out of a class of 80.

    So, while it maybe up to you how you decide to take things, the grass is only greener over the septic tank.

    Hey bud...if you think this doesn't happen in US med schools as much, you are very wrong!! Heck, carib schools don't complain compared to US schools. US med schools even have a "challenge committee" where questions on exam deemed to be unfair or have multiple answers can be appealed. You are S.O.L. at AUC if a question is unfair. But I liked the rest of your post esth00001...

    Very true...we at AUC love to complain!! It's a requirement before being accepted to AUC.

    BUT...with that said, US students complain a lot as well. I've heard from the few I've rotated with that they have the same problems that we do. People fail step exams in US schools...but probably not nearly as many as from AUC or other carib schools. We fudge our numbers on our website, I'm sure US schools fudge numbers too...just maybe not as much.

    They complain, we complain...it's something about medicne that brings it out in us.

    What are you gonna do?
