    Statement

    To all ValueMD users writing negative posts on our forum:
    1. CMU will operate no matter how many negative posts you'll write, so don't waste your time, focus on your study and become good doctors.
    2. CMU is a legit school with the ability to provide excellent education, clinical rotations and prepare its students to pass USMLE. The time will show.
    3. No other Caribbean medical school had such a good start as CMU, some started in barracks, some in garage, and some in hotels or small shopping malls. After years of operations they are still there.
    4. CMU is located on amazing, student friendly island, in great facilities, unlike many others has dorms, a lot of available clinical rotations, access to local labs and hospitals, affordable tuition, scholarships and many more advantages over older schools.
    5. The strength of CMU is its students, faculty members, administration and we are very proud of them.
    6. We have started a month ago so don’t expect that everything will be perfect at the beginning. Give us some time.
    7. I personally thing that the all the negative posts come from people who are afraid of CMU, otherwise no one would bother to spend so much time and energy to badmouth our school. It just shows their weakness.
    8. We appreciate all the productive comments about the areas that we need to improve. We will do it ASAP, but 90% of the posts are just inductive, dishonest, black PR and unfair.
    9. We don’t badmouth other schools and are just fairly competing with them.
    10. I think ValueMD is supposed to be a place to exchange valueble information about medical career and the way some of its users behave makes me doubt they will ever become doctors. Please show that you're professionals. Therefore I will not respond to any unfair allegations because we have much more other important things to do than replying to those posts.

    Good luck to all of you.

    I noticed that, that is why i wanted him to clear it up. Does he work for a MEMG or is he directly on the school payroll? it has been suggested that he is the owner but I have not seen anything to back it up.

    Either way, the school has a lot of explaining to do. Hopefully they will be able to pull it all together so that their student body will be able to succeed without being hindered by the school.

    Is this consultancy group - MEMC - a ''not for profit'' foundation too?

    That's a pretty strong statement! So far there is no proof CMU has scammed anybody. What is your reason for joining VMD and then spending most of your posts slamming this school? It is easy to write negative things about a school that is just opening. Were you scammed by them? What school do you go to? Do you work for a school and are an unregistered agent on VMD for that school? Inquiring minds want to know. RL has done meet VMD's requirements and registered as an agent of his school and business.

    I call it like I see it. I am not paid by ValueMD or any school. Nor do I recruit for any school.

    I'm just waiting though for a response though on the legitimate concerns of the website and clinical rotation spots. Those are not negative "allegations."

    and instead of the school official responding or trying to stop the bickering and trash talking on vmd, i think the more urgent or important matter is to address the 2 problems cmu has on its hands: plagiarism and PA rotations

    and yet this CMU school offical has pointedly avoided these topics.

    also it should be easy enough to show a copy of your charter- it would be the easiest way to shut up the naysayers about the legitamacy of your school.

    I sure hope I am smarter than a lawyer, I am 4 months from an M.D.!! CMU is still a joke, not because it is new, but because of its cult like endless cheerleading . Let one student from CMU pass step 1, step 2CK, and Step 2CS, and get a residency, then you can say something. Your rabid sycophantic attitude towards your institutuion sounds more like a late night informercial than an institute of medical education. The reason many of us dislike CMU's tactics is that from the view of many US program directors, carib grads are all the same, regardless of which school. So when one of us acts foolish, we all must deal with the consequences. So, please, start acting professional, stop with the idiotic reality tv stuff. Also,the school official contantly on the student forum truly shows how desparate school admin must be.
