    Advertisements

    The American University of Antigua is pleased to announce that it has entered into a unique affiliation agreement with San Juan Bautista (SJB), School of Medicine a U.S. LCME-accredited medical school. This joint effort will offer qualified AUA students the opportunity to participate in clinical clerkships as enrolled visiting students of SJB. SJB has clinical sites in Florida and Puerto Rico. These sites have all the necessary resources that meet the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) guidelines.

    In addition, SJB, based on their positive faculty review of AUA, has agreed to give transfer priority to AUA students subject to availability and students meeting their requirements for transfer.

    AUA is the first and only Caribbean medical school that has been able to enter into an affiliation with a United States, LCME accredited medical school that will provide clinical clerkship opportunities and the opportunity to transfer.

    SJB has clinical sites in Florida and Puerto Rico

    You've stated that SJB offers clinical sites in Florida as well. Is there a site in Miami by any chance? If so, then when will Miami be offered as a clinical site? What core and elective clerkships are offered at the Florida clinical sites? Thank you for answering my questions.

    You can't actually apply to the Florida sites, they are just part of the overall program at SJB, and could be an option later based on availability. Basically, all AUA students assigned to SJB as visiting students would do their initial rotations at the SJB hospital in San juan.

    If the training is done at San Juan Bautista Medical Center, I would really check into whether or not this is a greenbook site. I looked on the ACGME website, and this medical center is not listed as having any greenbooks. Maybe I just wasnt looking in the right place, but hopefully SJB has other sites in PR that are greenbook.

    I was actually offered a spot at this location a few weeks ago. Just an FYI, this location is not ACGME certified and you MUST be fluent in Spanish. The doctor I spoke to (he works there) said fluency in Spanish is a must. You can do all your rotations there though....so up to you.

    Are you sure, the first poster said that it was an LCME Accredited Med school. Doesn't that mean that the rotations are greenbook?

    I am positive, I spoke to a doctor (through the school) at that location. LCME is not ACGME so it is not green. I am not sure if the residential programs will accept it in leu of ACGME but it is NOT considered a greenbook. I repeat, according to the "horse's mouth" this is not green.

    I am still trying to understand the LCME accreditation. I did find this though:
    LCME: Overview: Accreditation and the LCME

    Graduates of LCME-accredited schools eligible for residency programs accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
    So if I am understanding this, basically you can do your residency at ACGME approved residential programs. But the part I am still a bit confused is when you do your ERAS paperwork for match there is a section where you check off whether or not your rotations were ACGME certified. So I don't know if we could check the "yes" box. If Sree or Nicstx sees this could you please weigh in?
