    Dateline NBC investigation: growing scams in caribbean medical schools especialy CMU

    Advertisements



    A case study: CMU.
    Caribbean Medical School CMU scam.
    The school called Caribbean Medical school with the website CMU | Caribbean Medical University - Medical School, Medical College, Caribbean Medical School, Schools of Medicine, Medical School Top that is on the island of Curaçao, Netherlands Antilles.
    This school opened up in May of 2007 without any charter at all. A charter is needed to legally confer any type of degree toany graduating student. They have falsley claimed to be listed on IMED and WHO, these are listings required for any medical students to be able to take classes and the students are not eligible to sit for the USLME exams necessary before they can become licensed physicians.
    Despite the lack of all these, the school is fraudulently in operation and is collecting tuition from un-suspecting students while lieing to them and giving false hopes about their dream of becoming US practicing doctors.
    All efforts have been made to convince the school administrator to make ammends but he continues to tell one lie after another in hopes that these problem can be swept under the rug so they can continue to collect money from students.
    THe school administrator has been confronted about all his lies, he has admitted to some and denied most, still wishing all these can be ignored so they can continue to collect money. This is fraud and this is a scam. Let us stop it now.

    Can you give us the link to this article or tell when it's going to air on tv. I just want a heads up, because if they're looking at all caribbean medical schools, and my parents see this on tv, they're gonna be like "why are you going there?" And they'll group all caribbean med schools together.

    It is a joke

    Dateline would probably care more about car crashes and fallen bridges than the days of lives in cmu.

Next time someone attempts to be a student it could be an undercover agent so good luck with your lies. soon you will be the face os caribbean medical school scam, I will be laughing then.

    yes - obviously she or he has not been following the posts, but the post brings up a very good point and it is at the heart of the reason that all of us are posting here.

    poor performance, shady dealings, and fradulant practices by ANY caribbean school TAINTS US ALL!!!!!

    what if it was true, what if there was going to be some expose (and its not like there haven't been article out written every now and then about some shady school) - those schools - SGU, AUC, Ross, SABA, SMU, AUA, and so forth that have been working hard for the past- some for 30 years- to develop stallar reputation in the US, UK, and the rest of the world are all seen as the same level as CMU! ONe bad school drags us all down.

    I think its silly to pretend there is a dateline article, no matter how far fetched the idea may be.
