    any successful matches from IAU?

    Advertisements



    wondering if anyone has successfully matched or scrambled with IAU, certain programs decline any student from IAU but are open to other Caribbean school candidates, what IAU friendly programs are out there for IAU grads? I'm talking about states, hospitals, thanks again!

    As far I know, we are yet to have any residents. Our first batch of grads are matching this year. I know a couple of grads who got interviews and will hopefully match this year. IAU grads cannot apply to residency programs in CA, FL, NJ or TX. Its not just IAU grads, anyone other than SGU, ROSS, AUC, Saba and SMU* grads cannot apply for residency positions in these states either. See here for a previous thread on what states are IAU friendly.

    * Disapproved in CA, NJ, TX But Approved in FL

    Dr. Kidd what you have written isn't correct. Currently there are residents from IAU, one that I know of is at university of Kentucky doing psych. There are others too, but not many. Also, after speaking to the texas state medical board, IAU students are allowed to do residency in the state of Texas as they don't have any requirements for training licenses. However, Texas will only allow IAU grads full licensure, if they are board certified. (feel free to call the Texas board, there very helpful). Also from what I know, I think IAU grads are also allowed to do residency's in the state of Florida as long as you meet some sort of requirement with clinical rotations, but I may be wrong as I have never spoken to their medical board. have no clue about NJ, but this is the first time i've heard what you've written about NJ. CA is def a no go.

    Thats incorrect. They are only disapproved in Ca.They are approved and have many residents in NJ, FL and with the new legislation are approved in TX as well.
    Well, he's had it in for me ever since I "kinda" ran over his dog. Actually, replace "kinda" with "repeatedly," and replace "dog" with "son."

    IAU has one graduate doing Psychiatry Residency at the Univ. of Kentucky University of Kentucky Department of Psychiatry

    Texas does not limit post graduate training based on what school you attend. Here is a statement from Mrs. Denise Meyers of TMB http://www.valuemd.com/state-medical...s-texas-2.html

    CA, FL, NY and NJ Medical Boards require the school to be approved for students/graduates to participate in any form of clinical clerkship including residency.

    IAU is only approved by NY at this time. Hence graduates cannot participate in residency in CA, FL or NJ. However there are no restrictions for licensure in FL or NJ.

    What the above poster has posted is correct. Keep in mind that IAU is a young school and it takes a long time to get residents out there and an even longer time for them to become attendings. IAU had a lot of problems at first just like every other school starting up but now it seems to be really smoothing over and getting a lot better for the students.

    UMHS is a relatively new program. I have heard that they have good facilities. The admin is supposed to be veterans as well. They do not have NY approval which means u have lesser options when it comes to residency.

    AUA has NY approval and good facilities. However the tuition + various fees comes to around 15K. And they seem to have some hiccups with clinicals, where students have to wait to get scheduled.

    IAU is a very small school. Class sizes around 25 - 30 giving a lot of personal attention from professors. Facilities are mediocre. There is everything you need, but nothing too fancy. Tuition + fees comes to around $5375 per semester. The curriculum prepares you very well for the USMLE. I especially enjoy the local clincal part. Lots of hands on. Plus professors are nice and care about the students success.
