    HIV test

    Advertisements



    Did you all need to do the HIV test before going to AUC?
    It seems like other Caribb schools don't require that.

    Most do require the test....
    But the outcome will not prevent you from attending school...positive or negative.... "Good grades and Money will surely help quite much."
    I need to think about something...maybe you know what...

    If you fail at AUC, SGU, or Ross why not transfer to SMU, if you fail at SMU, why not try another SMU.

    I am not a student yet but am sure that it is required to help prevent the introduction of such disease to an island where it isn't really prevalent. Disease prevention.
    TB

    It is required by almost all North American medical schools along with a criminal record check because you will eventually be in contact with patients and you have no right to hide such information because it directly affects the health of others.

    When we started in September 04, the stat was over 60% have HIV on the island and growing. This will not prevent you from getting in, they just want to know so that they can make arrangements for your health and that of those around you (so they said).

    Good luck,
