    which carribean school has the highest step 1 average?

    Does anyone know this? I would think it is between SGU and Ross but is the difference marginal?

    Thanks!

    not that i would want to go to the university baghdad.....but..... besides their antiquated website.... this place looks like its academics facilities and infrastructure are more similar to US universities than any caribbean university.

    how would you know ??

    How would you know ??
    Ever been to Bagdad U ? which carib U do you compare it to ?
    Regardless of facilities, the fact that you can do rotations in the US at ACGME and get USMLE Prep alone is a huge selling point........that's why Carib Med programs is huge business........

    Targeted sarcastic attacks on my medical school, are based on fallacies. I surely hope it is not a representation of the average poster on ValueMD.

    definitely an advantage for learning the US system going the carib route. all i meant was that its not a stand alone medical school with a few lecture halls and nothing else like most carib med schools are outside of a select few. its more similar to how big universities in the states are with multiple undergrad and graduate programs.

    My understanding is that UHSA was established at Dow Hill in 1982.
    Ross, SGU, Spartan & AUC were established around the same time.

    Therefore that UHSA has indeed been around longer than most Carribean offshore medical schools is sound doctrine that can not be refuted or denied as the scriptures declares in Titus 2:8.

    Having been around much longer than most Carribean offshore medical schools, would it not be reasonable for anyone to conclude that it has the highest matching rate, and all the more so because of its current, calculated and ubiquitous representation on VMD?

    Of course being reasonable does not always mean that one's conclusions are always true- as is apparently true in this case. But I am always willing to be corrected, since I have always sought only to tell the truth in this forum. I have always sought sincerely and succintly only to present FACT rather than FANTASY or FALLACY. Honestly!

    According to UHSA Alumni newsletter, since 1982, the school has graduated just over 1400 MDs, most are matched either in the US or worldwide......This semester 54 MDs will graduate from UHSA......recent requirement of the school, mandate ECFMG Completion before the MD is granted.......yet, another step many carib medical schools do not require....

    Thanks for agreeing with me that UHSA does not have the highest match rate, and for stating that your rate is less than a third of that for Ross SGU and AUC which all started around the same time.

    You will probably find that St James Saba and others have a higher rate.
