    Current IAU MED STUDENTS CONCERNS

    Advertisements



    WOOOOOOOOWWWWW!!!!! we honestly had to evaluate if these bloggers are speaking about the same International American University that we attend. Where is this wonderful and amazing facility at? Because clearly, we have attended the wrong IAU in Saint Lucia.

    Yes, there was a big issue with ECFMG, which the school got an extension on and CAAM-HP is still up in the air. We honestly pray that the school gets the accreditation for the sake of all the students that are attending it. A big problem with IAU is their mishandling of student disbursements, leaving loan recipients without finances for the entire semester. This is a big issue and we would email to find out what was going on with the disbursements and only the lucky ones would get answers to their emails or phone calls. So, we pretty much took out loans for the school to withhold throughout the semester. We also heard from upper level IAU students in clinical rotations that they were not being allowed to do their clinical rotations due to lack of payment from the school to the clinical site even though they paid their tuition. Where exactly would the money go? We asked the same questions that never got answered. There were some issues with electricity being cut off for a couple of days as well as internet and water; but water being out on the island is common whenever it rains for a long period of time. Just imagine though, bathrooms with no water. A lot of us would just leave school and go home because the bathrooms would be compromised with odor. As for the electricity and internet, we all assumed that the schoolís financial issues didnít allow them to pay the bills. The school has a few Awesome professors who can really make the massive amounts of material stick; and there are also a few who are not so good at explaining the information, but the knowledge is there. We noticed that the school has had professors come and go due to them not getting paid and that is never a good sign. We, as students are not here to bash the school, but to let future students know in advance what to be prepared for. So, if you are hoping to use loans to pay for your tuition, make sure you have some money in your account to last you at least 4months.

    Also, we have yet to find that tennis court and gym that is being displayed in the campus tour video lol.

    Yes, thank you very much for a thorough response! Finances are critical part of any medical students, as every student relies heavily on it, hence we have gazZilion loans after graduation.
    In my personal opinion the school is excellent for my needs, which are focused classes, system based approach and application of knowledge learned in school on real patients. The school is somewhat new, and being a new guy on the block you will always have nay-sayers. But overall my transition from admission to the school has been great and I would do it again if needed. One thing to note, they should increase their clinical rotations to multiple locations, that way it will be more marketable for students and for school as well. In any medical school, even in hashkash if you do well, you will do well anywhere and even match into competitive residency!
