    UNIBE Costa Rica! Should i go there??

    Advertisements



    Hi there,
    i am thinking about going to study in UNIBE in Costa Rica,i am looking for some information about the uni:
    how are the teachers there??
    relations between teachers and students??
    exams?? hard?
    how do they organize your time between hospital and classes? Good or bad?
    are there any libraries to study in??
    the uni structure is good??
    how far is the hospital from The city center???
    is it good for the clinical parts??
    Do you advice me to go there??
    about San JosŤ,is it a good city for students??
    how are the prices there??
    how much can you pay for a normal living student a month??
    the people??
    what's the percent of people that speak spanish?

    i heared that the UNIBE of Dominican Republic is not the best,that you have to make many things by your own,and that you finish the medical program with insufficient Preparation as a doctor, is it like that also in CR??

    Thank you in advance!

    Ok first of all i am from Houston.... and straight i out of highschool i went to UCIMED in costa rica i did 2 years of my school there and my experience from that was a total disaster.... there mentality is if there is not to many spots for hospitals to rotate in, then they have to start failing people...(i have a sister that has grad from there and most of her graduating class keep telling people not to go there)

    SO i ended up leaving UCIMED and started going to UNIBE.... my experince with Unibe has been "better" i mean cmon i have seen alot a answers on this thread and people are so funny.... ITS A THIRD WORLD country people it doesnt matter if you go to mexico, dr, india etc.. this countries are DIFFERENT than what we are use to back home.....Most americans just dont get that in there HEADS.....


    I saw a thread earlier that said that UNIBE was a cheating villa... UM that really depends if you want to cheat really... and from my experience most "upper courses" are all fill in the blank exams so its hard to cheat on those dont you think....

    Also NO they dont have english program.... LEARN SPANISH period i have seen alot of americans that put the effort on doing so...

    Also i have met alot of friends that graduated and ended taking the USMLE and matched good specialties....

    WE DONT HAVE TO DO INTERNSHIP IN COSTA RICA they give you a diploma before so you can do your internship back home


    All in all, USMLE score are irrelative for the size of the university.... it all depends on the time and effort you put it to... and ultimately it will prepare you for general medicine but not for the boards.... NOTHING prepares you for the broads unless you take KAPLAN or you studying at a university back home....(ITS ALL PAIN AND SWEAT on your part) i mean cmon most doctors in texas are INDIAN and i am sure they dont offer USMLE courses in india.......lol

    Remember this is COSTA RICA they dont care if your are gonna take the boards or not.... everything back home has different prosiduresdures that only school in the states will show you...


    i hope that helps!!

    UNIBE is one of the worst medical schools in Costa Rica. It graduates some of the most terrible and incompetent doctors in the country and possibly the world. Seriously, I am not kidding nor exagerating. If you can avoid it, it would be better. It's a disgrace for the practice of medicine in Costa Rica. Because of universities like that is that foreigners leave the country with a wrong impression

    hello! I am a graduate from UNIBE in costa rica, I highly recommend you not attend this institute! IT is no where near the necessary academic level to succeed in US residency programs! the campus is a joke and the professors as well. It is way too overpriced for what you get and the level of education you receive. Please consider another university such as Ross or St Georges that from my experience are much more prepared for us residencies.

    A good portion of this thread is filled with garbage and unjustified slander of a good academic institution. An admin should clean it up. I'd do it myself, but I don't have said privileges.
