    the truth about IUHS from student who was there.

    Advertisements



    I was under the impression the people who post here with negative remarks were just one or two people who has some bad experience with IUHS. I was a student at IUHS until May 2003. I did about 3 semesters at the school starting in August 2002. I want to help someone out there with the honest truth about IUHS thatís why I am writing this.
    When I went to IUHS in August I was taken back by the "the house" we call a school. Then I was also taken back by the fact my incoming class was 10 students, out of which only 6 of us were new students. Within a few days we lost 2 students. I was ready to transfer too but I gave it a two week chance. Things were not bad. I had one teacher who I thought was amazing. HE taught us everything and that was the reason for me to stay. I liked the island and for the most part students were mature (with exceptions). The staff was pretty good. Always there for u and willing to work with you.
    Well this May things changed.
    The teacher who was good, he was gone. He is no longer part of the school. Our principal resigned and then there was 2 teachers left who clear could not run a medical school without support. Yes you read right, we had 2 teachers to give us a medical education. When I first came in I already thought we were limited on campus with the number of teachers we had. We wanted more but no one listened to us.
    The school asked me to give them a few weeks before I left so because I felt a loyalty to a few people (very few) in IUHS staff and I stayed a few more weeks. They said they will replace teacher in 2 weeks and itís been months now. The school is a scam. When the fall out with teachers occurred they promised many things and have delivered on nothing. The truth is IUHS does not have anything that attract teachers to thier on campus program. They dont have students and they dont have a real campus or anything else to attract GOOD teachers. They are under new management and the problem with the old management according to what I was told was they were a scam. They lied and took advantage of students.
    The online and on campus program were always in competition with one another even though it was one school. It was not the students who were in competition but teachers. On line teachers vs. on campus, the quest to find out who can produce the best student. The online students were given questions to exams. You have one exam for a block (2 blocks in one semester) The questions were always from a test bank so if you memorized or did enough question you can get a 50 ( which is passing by the way)
    The new management's problem is one man runs the show and he does not want to share power. He is teacher, administrator and everything else for the school. The last block I was in I was not given a syllabus and when I was it was a joke. He has no time to do everything and he is really not that good. IUHS is 5 years old yet they have not established a good on campus program. On campus we have class from 9-12 everyday. NO LABS! NO DEPTH in teachers.
    They donít have an incoming class larger than 10. After my class it was 3 students out of which one is still at IUHS. Out of the 10 students who were part of my class there is 2 people left at IUHS. EVERYONE ELSE LEFT!! If thatís not a warning sign then I donít know what is. There is a total of 3 students on campus right now. Unless IUHS makes some serious changes it sucks as a school. You will have problems with getting your license and on top of that you will have to deal with the dramas of a small school which means you will feel the affect of school politics. ( which means less time studying for USMLE)
    IUHS will need some time before it can become a good school and it needs someone good to lead it. So far no good leader has emerged.
    I am at a real medical school now and I understand what I missed out in IUHS. I learned physiology in my 3 semesters at IUHS and I was a good student too (some one who spend many hours studying). Why pay IUHS thousands of dollars only to teach yourself everything anyway. I realize now I have gaps in anatomy, histology, biochemistry and all the other subjects. There is no foundation taught and because of that you donít understand what you are taught, you just memorize.
    There are some great support staff in IUHS and I have love them and I have loyalty to them but IUHS leaders ( ones in power) are scam artists trying to make money by giving minimal education.

    IUHS need to shut down until they get teachers that are good and get a real school going.
    They make promises and offer tution reduction but in the end you get the raw deal!

    any more information needed contact me.. I will give you honest answers to IUHS.. I will post more information on what to ask IUHS and details about online program if anyone is really thinking about going to IUHS..

    where now...

    I have been asked to name the school which I go to. After thinking about it I think its best not to promote any school. I really do love it where I am but I have been here for only a few months. I only wrote about IUHS because I was thinking about how I was mislead with IUHS and wasted my time there. I just wanted to help some one out there from making the same mistake. IUHS needs to establish itself because any one thinks of going there. When looking at caribbean school look at the track record and find out about thier leadership's capablity to bring in teachers.

    Well said!

    You have posted the most responsible written, fact informing, non-trash talking feedback on IUHS that I have ever seen. As an ex-IUHS student myself I know you told the truth. Good luck mate!

    This chap told the issues as he saw it as a student

    but the truth about IUHS was properly and comletely told on the old fora by one who has been associated with the best school in the whole region, from August 2002-April 2003.


    No one listened.


    The posts then also included snippets from students in the online program

    The post by Genossa is therefore just junk

    I know someone who was at the school at the time you are mentioning. I think you are correct about everything in your post, however, I would comment on one item if you don't mind.

    The school is not under new management. The school is under the oldest management who have come back. The person who is currently running the school is the same person who was the school's main problem. He is the accountant. An accountant is now running a medical school.

    My friend says it was just a way of telling new students that things would change and they can blame the old management. Who are the support staff that you found useful? My friend says anyone who knew anything has left.

    there are some people who will tell the truth

    you need to call the ones who know the truth out. There are some people out there who know what has gone on. Try the old ISA members and try the old students who transfered. They can tell you information that might be helpful.

    Another one who told the truth

    from August 2002 to April 2003 was Georgie Porgie and associates.

    Georgie was fed info by both on campus students and online students -------but no one listened and some who said they exposed Georgie and villfied , and wrote him threatening letters etc TRANSFERRED FROM THE SCHOOL WHILE THEY WERE DOING THAT , BECAUSE FROM JUNE 2002 THEY SAID THEY WERE GOING TO DO SO.


    One of these same students wrote a post entitled THE REAL SCOOP ABOUT IUHS IN OCTOBER 2002.

    These same students are now howling and singing a different song.

    As they say in St Kitts........Oh me AM.

    HYPOCRITES they are. Before the moderators censor me for that word PLEASE LOOK UP THE GREEK AND SEE WHAT IT MEANS as it is a translitteration.

    Another way of saying it is to use the Latin SINE CERE they are not sincere - they are not without wax. Again look up the etymology of the word, before proceeding to censor.


    Georgie and friends must be laughing today.
