    St. Luke School Of Medicine, Liberia

    Advertisements



    St Luke will be accredited soon. They won the injunction in Liberian supreme court.
    St. Luke file a WRIT of PROHIBITION in the Liberian Supreme Court and sited the Min of Education, Min of Justice and a 5-Member Executive Committee. SLSOM won the INJUNCTION and the accreditation was restored.

    The Government did not even show up for the hearing. St. Luke will now be moving for a DECLARATORY JUDGEMENT that will permanently accredit SLSOM through the Supreme Court of Liberia.

    A document is being prepared for ECFMG-IMED to restore our previous status. SLSOM will remain on the WDMS.

    Thank you.

    That is fascinating.
    For the supreme court to say that the government in Liberia was in error and corrupted is quite a move.
    If it is truely what happen, poor St Luke, because the school must have been completely innocent and badly hurt.
    But this school chose to go in this country though...

    Liberia to Become a Breeding Ground for Education Fraudsters?

    ****** S. Sherman


    ****** S. Sherman wonders how can Liberia accomplished education goals when certain individuals have taken short cuts to acquire and issue bogus credentials to the detriment of the nation and its workforce?

    The controversy surrounding the St. Luke Medical School, which according to reports many medical practitioners denounced its existence in Monrovia, signals danger looming over the educational system in Liberia. Besides this latest controversy, it has become a hard, cold fact that fraudsters in collaboration with unscrupulous Liberians have infiltrated the educational system in order to make money.

    The famous case of a non-existing St. Regis University alleged to be located in Liberia, where fraudsters issue fake degrees, diplomas, and fabricated transcripts is something the government of Liberia and the Ministry of Education should investigate thoroughly to save the credibility of the country's educational institutions from international disrepute.

    Education fraud is a serious problem; it creates a lot of harm and damages to the socio-economic development of a country. Human resources perceived to be the bedrock of a nation's development will be polluted and disoriented because of the series of misrepresentations designed by fraudsters to deceive their prey.

    Providing quality education to every Liberian is central to strengthening democracy and promoting development in the country. Also the human right to food or quality health care means that the government must do everything possible to protect these social sectors because it occupies a central place in Human Rights and is essential and indispensable for the exercise of development. None of the civil, political, economic and social rights can be exercised by individuals unless they have received quality education and health care.

    How can this be accomplished in Liberia when certain individuals have taken short cuts to acquire and issue bogus credentials to the detriment of the nation and its workforce? The government of Liberia should initiate a campaign not only to restore Liberia's international image but also to clean up the country of educational fraudsters. This could be done by implementing the following education fraud prevention hints:

    Develop an anti-fraud education policy and culture which ensures that educationally prudent measures are taken.

    Encourage a whistle-blowing philosophy in all learning institutions in the country, so that all suspicious credentials from so-called foreign Universities or institutions are scrutinized to the fullest.

    The Ministry of Education or Health should take hard line on culprits. Give a clear message that they will be caught or prosecuted in a competent court of law.

    Finally, another trick fraudsters use in education fraud is to use a name of a school or an identical name of a famous school in USA, UK, Asia, or Europe. If the famous school has not registered in Liberia then anyone else can registered the name without any affiliation with the original school at all. In this regard, the Ministry of Education should not issue an operating license to the school nor encourage students to enroll in that institution.

    St. Luke up and running?

    http://www.stluke.edu/

    Their website states they are accepting students for a class starting this month "Jan, 2006".

    Did they get their accreditation back?

    Apparently, it isn't "online", you have to go to campus in Gaye Town, Liberia.... Bring your safari gear!

    appears to be an old version of the website since it includes people who are not involved anymore.

    Per the Liberian govt. they are not recognized or allowed to be open. But there are always some people who will give them money I imagine....amazing stuff

    Watch out

    St. Luke School of Medicine is still not recognized by the Liberian Government and still has the online program going up and running. To date there are no graduates from SLSOM in residency or practicing. As I used to be a student there I know what I am talking about. I have several former classmates with worthless degrees. At present SLSOM students/graduates cannot sit for the usmle or enter the match. I know of one of my former classmates who passed step 1 before the ECFMG removed SLSOM from there listing along with IMED removing SLSOM also. So with a degree from SLSOM you can do nothing in the medical community anywhere in the world that requires some sort of accredidation to practice. Most of the students went to other schools and are doing fine. One graduate is teaching anatomy part time at a either a Medical Assistant school or a school of Osteopathic Medicine and selling herbal supplements online. So if you want to actually do anything useful in the medical field do not go to SLSOM. They will take your money, tell you lies and leave you high broke and dry.

    Forgot

    Oh yeah I forgot as far as the Liberian campus goes. The government locked it up and commandered all of what little facilities (if you want to call them that). So actually the school does not legally nor physically exist. It is only through the online program that you can accoplish any coursework which is not acceptable to do anything in the states.
