Hey guys,

4th year transfer from AUA, unfortunately. Accepted into CMU and Atlantic as a 4th year advance standing clinical science student. Need to make a decision. Tuition etc being equal, following is the issue. Now according to WHO, "CMU: “The medical school and its programme in medical education are not subject to accreditation or a similar process of official recognition,” according to WHO/AVICENNA"

Atlantic: Accrediting Body: Ministry of Education, according to WHO/AVICENNA

To be honest, i am not quite sure what is the difference. If anyone can shed some light and or aid is making a decision that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Hello Redsoxsuck,

That information on WHO simply means that Curaçao does not have an accrediting body; thus, no schools in Curaçao are required to be accredited.
The Ministry of Education doesn't evaluate medical schools here, but they are considering starting that. So, no medical schools in Curaçao are evaluated by the Ministry of Education.
We have applied for the CAAM-HP accreditation, which is the regional accreditation for the whole Caribbean, and they should be doing a site visit sometime.

If you have any other questions, please contact me!
