    Georgia is considering using the CA lsit

    Advertisements



    An OP in the IUHS forum posted this.... If true Georgia will soon ban many Caribbean schools, another one bites the dust!

    "I decided to email a few states to see where everything stands, if they will licence graduates from IUHS, even if it has online course components, and i will post responses as i receive them, so far i only have one...

    here is the thread....

    GEORGIA-
    Good morning. We are currently accepting international medical school graduates if the schools are listed in the WHO Book. This may change soon as we are looking into using the same list as the State of California utilizes. I am not sure about the courses. As far as the residency programs, you will need to contact the program as each program has it owns requirements for the programs. Should you have additional
    questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us.:

    Georgia considering using CA list?

    I found this thread in the IUHS forum....

    http://www.valuemd.com/international...ml#post1018513

    If it is true and they do, then Georgia will effectively ban several Caribbean schools, not just IUHS.

    Your thoughts?

    If this happens, a lof of Carib students will be effected. There are currently quite a few Carib students rotating in GA. Some hope to eventually get a license there.

    With all this movement towards accepting CA list, eventually only those schools approved by CA will survive.

    What about those graduates currently in residency in GA? They prob won't get licensed if this passes.

    It'd be interesting to see what happens.

    What about graduates who have been licensed in States before they adpt the CA list? Will they be grandfathered in?

    They usually put a deadline for their California approval will work. But it's true, this California list is spreading and most of the schools will fail.

    Perhaps MUA and AUA will expedite their plans for Cali? One could only hope?

    There needs to be a major overhaul in the way caribbean schools are evaluated. I have never understood why a national committee doesnt oversee this issue and can either totally approve the school everywhere or dissaprove them everywhere this would solve all the problems in the future. No student will need to worry about state to state licensing and the country doesnt have to worry about crappy caribb schools who are diploma mills since no one will attend those schools.This califonia adoption policy is nonsense and gives everyone a headache.
    Well, he's had it in for me ever since I "kinda" ran over his dog. Actually, replace "kinda" with "repeatedly," and replace "dog" with "son."

    I wholeheartedly agree with you Jonas but who will be doing that. Clearly we as students have no power to do it and the schools are making enough money to not push for it.

    Unfortunately they rarely do it retroactive. In other words, recognition begins from the moment they give their approval, not before. A tought one.

    Rarely. However, didn't Saba have a 2 or 3 year retroactive clause?

    I'm hoping that MUA's relationship with Saba will aid (somewhat) in the approval process.

    I just pray all of this is taken care of before I head to any Medical school, Caribbean or not.
