    The ones who do this are usually Canadian students. They transfer to Saba where they can do their clinical rotations in Canada. MUA doesn't have roations in Canada yet, but we are working on it! Hope this helps!

    Never heard of this before. When did Saba get rotations in Canada? I know there are people doing electives in Canada but cores in Canada are prettymuch unheard of. Anybody from any school can do electives in Canada (as long as u meet some basic requirements).

    As for people transferring out, there's really not that many who transfer out. It's mostly people who drop a class here and there and end up having to repeat it the next semester. So as the semesters go forward, the classes get smaller. We started with 55 and ended up with 30 graduating with us. That doesn't mean they all transferred; it just means that some ppl would have graduated a semester or two after us.

    didnt any of u canuks read the stuff about cores in canada? you do the similar rotations as cores but they are specifically termed "electives" so they do not count as cores. as such, you still cannot get into canada.

    i know about it, and i think it makes canada look stupid. many doctors just sitting on their butts up there waiting to help ppl and the stupid government wont let them. rather have ppl be sick for longer time periods and GET WORSE and NEED MORE MEDICAL care than they would have otherwise just so that ONLY CANADA medical grads can practice up there... so dumb...

    im surprized that "black market" medicine hasnt caught on big up there... guess ppl would rather get a buzz than get their broken arm fixed...
