Your question should be: Are there any past IUHS students who are practicing?

I would say that you will be hard pressed to find anyone who has recently completed this program and is actively practicing in the United States. I challenge any one of them to come forward and describe their US residency and there US licensing process and the specialty which they're practicing in.

NJ has a rule to keep online schools out. It says you have to complete the basic sciences portion of the program in the location where the school is chartered. This excludes online schools or those that conduct classes in locations other than the country that issued the charter. These rules are becoming more frequent in many states. WA, AL, NJ, VA have all enacted similar rules. There may be more states but the ones I listed are the ones I know of for sure.

There was a time when IUHS was conducting classes on the Island. This was before it went entirely online. There are IUHS grads who are licensed. But you have to be careful and must makes sure if they got licensed after completing the online program. The school claims there are licensed grads( that's true) but it makes no mention of if they graduated from the early days of IUHS or they are grads from the purely online program. This makes a big difference.

The new Caribbean accreditation agency won't give accreditation to online schools. Hence the future of IUHS is somewhat up in the air. Unless they pull a rabbit out of their hat at the last minute or change their model of education to allow them to receive accreditation from the Caribbean accreditation agency, I don't see this school as a viable option for anyone who is interested in actually practicing medicine.

By the way I have nothing against IUHS because it gives student the opportunity to have basic sciences with better quality faculty who might be difficult to recruit to the islands on full time basis. I also have nothing against technology based teaching because basic sciences can be taught online and spending time in the anatomy lab dissecting cadavers is becoming a thing of the past in many N. American schools. But the medical establishment hasn't caught up to the benefits of technology and finds online schools unacceptable. Until they do, these schools are not viable options.

I wasn't aware of that...

It's true the "medical establishment" is rather conservative no matter the country. But on the other hand, this thing (IUHS) has no credibility at all (they produced some doctors in the past but on their brick and mortar campus).

Give a try by yourself: email the admission office...just to see if they will reply.

At the end maybe the current owner of this thing, is a kid living with his mother, collecting money from a few people and giving them access to some videos he/they call "courses". It's just an hypothesis....but probably impossible to refute with proofs.

Anyway, the fact that this school is not approved by the CAAM-HP should close the discussion. It's a dead end, probably even for someone who would like to practice in a 3rd world country.


That being said, do I believe in online education for the basic sciences years?
Yes.
But not for everyone.
Not by any med school.
And probably with a different "format". For instance, online students could be required to make some arrangements with their local university to at least participate to an anatomy class with cadaver dissection, etc.
Also, if they do their clinicals in the US, pass successfully their UMLEs....it means they have the same level of knowledge and skills as any US MD, right? Otherwise it's a disavowal of the entire system (clinicals + USMLE).
