    Integrated curriculum????

    Advertisements



    What a load of xxxxxx.. Look at MD 5 schedule -
    Fifth Semester - MD
    MD 511 Clinical Correlations with Board Review 14
    MD 512 Clinical Pathology with hospital based laboratory 12
    MD 513 Introduction to Clinical Medicine 10
    MD 514 Physical diagnosis 12
    Total : 48 credits
    48 credit hours!!! It means very simple thing - student has to spend in the classroom (assuming 5 teaching days) more than 9 hours per day. This is just ridiculous!!!
    And where is exactly integrated curriculum?

    Cheers,

    JohnI

    The Caribbean schools often steal words and phrases from US institutions for use in their marketing materials to make it sound like they are actually providing sound education. These schools have neither the know-how nor the teaching staff to pull off something like "integrated curriculum ". This is just one of the many misrepresentations one would encounter reading websites from Caribbean schools.

    In the smaller schools like Atlantic they often hire one or two teachers( to save money) to teach multiple courses and guess where the faculty is coming from?

    This comes as no surprise!!!
