    Credibility of MATCH results for this school

    Advertisements



    It is important for a school to be truthful about its USMLE passing rate, MATCH results etc. for the sake of all the schools. There is unfortunately a "tar" brush effect on all Caribbean schools when one makes unfounded or irresponsible claims. In visiting the St. Eustatius website, there is a banner about a 100% MATCH for 3 years. First, how can a school that opened its doors in 1999 make such claims? The ECFMG reports a 54% MATCH rates for US citizen IMG's and 55% for all IMG's. Not even St. George's makes such a claim and certainly no US school-there are always a few who don't MATCH.

    Agreed

    I had similar doubts with regards to the authenticity of the match results displayed on St. Eustatius website. I'm not sure about the claim of 100% match. But I do know that even though the school has been officially operating for only 4 years, this year may well be it's 3rd year in residency competition if students were accepted into 1st year basic sciences ('03 graduates), and also 3rd year clinicals ('01 and '02 graduates) back in 1999.

    Could they mean that all of their eligible students get clinicals ? Is that what they mean by match ? I'm a bit ignorant of ALL the terms.
