    Offshore school about to lose accreditation

    Advertisements



    An offshore school is being investigated for having classes on the island it's licensed for. It seems like it's close to losing accreditation and maybe ECFMG listing/recognition but not sure.

    What would you suggest the students that are currently enrolled in the school do? Should they transfer out ASAP before they lose accreditation or possibly ECFMG listing? Also if they lose accreditation, are the graduates of the school during the years it was accredited able to still apply for ECFMG certification?

    Thanks.

    Personally, I would attempt to transfer to one of the Big 4. It's too risky to stay if the school is about to lose accreditation. The graduates for the years the school was accredited will be able to apply for ECFMG accreditation usually, it'll have a stipulation on the listing like: "Graduates before 2018 from XYZ school."

    Is it Ross? They have been holding classes in Tennessee since the recent bout of hurricanes decimated Dominica. I presume this is common knowledge in the offshore medical community, No? After a year, it seems indefinite when they will return there. Major damage to the infrastructure.
