They will need to secure that by the end of 2018 or lose ECFMG certification once again. If they are unable to get CAAM-HP accreditation in the next year, they could potentially move to another island for a few more years before the ECFMG rules go into place in 2023.

    As of this summer, IAU is still unaccredited by CAAM-HP.

    If you are concerned about finishing with the security of finishing and getting into residency, do yourself a favor and head to Avalon (7900 basic sciences and 9100-10500 clinical sciences) or USAT ($5490 from the time you start to finish). Avalon's rotations are in Illinois, West Virginia, Michigan, Georgia, Arizona, and Ohio. USAT lets you complete rotations with whoever you wish (agencies such as AMC, Americlerkships) or anyone you know attached to a hospital. Dont stress yourself out now bout this school issue and head to a school knowing you are taken care of. If you are stressed now, wait till you have to take the steps and then your cortisol level will really be going through the roof!

    wrong post sir.

    YOUR INFORMATION IS FALSE!
    From ECFMG website

    The physician’s medical school must meet requirements established by ECFMG. Schools that meet all requirements will be listed in the World Directory of Medical Schools as meeting eligibility requirements for their students and graduates to apply to ECFMG for ECFMG Certification and examination. To confirm that your medical school meets ECFMG’s requirements, access the World Directory. Medical schools that meet ECFMG’s requirements will have an ECFMG note stating this in the schools’ World Directory listing. The ECFMG note also will include the graduation years for which the school meets these requirements. Since ECFMG is a sponsor of the World Directory, the ECFMG note is located on the “Sponsor Notes” tab of the medical school listing. If there is no ECFMG note on the Sponsor Notes tab of your medical school’s listing, you are not eligible to apply to ECFMG for ECFMG Certification and examination.

    from World Directory of Medical Schools:
    Students and graduates of this medical school are eligible to apply to ECFMG

    After 2022 students won't be able to sit for the USMLE.
    No USMLE = no residency.

    why you say 2022?

    The WFME recognizes 1 accrediting body for the Caribbean and that is CAAM-HP (Carribean Accredidation Authority for Education in Medicine and other Health Professions) and IAU is accredited untill 2020... then they will renew again, so what?, even Ross has to do to that, and they have been accredited only until Dec 2019.

    You assumed that any student from any school being listed on the WHO list is eligible to sit for USMLE. Which will be false soon.

    Yes they are accredited by the CAAM-HP, but it's only a provisional accreditation for 2 years.

    Also I'm curious why consider IAU over Spartan? The later has an incomparable track record and has a better CAAM-HP accreditation.
