    Who wants MUA to be the best school in the caribbean

    Advertisements



    I think we have all said pretty much what we wanted to say to let everyone know what we dislike about the school. Now, how about giving this new administration a chance to show us all that MUA will be the best in the very near future in terms of passing rates, teaching quality, facilities, cost, etc. without turning it into a Step 1 training center.
    ( you don't want to show up to clinicals just knowing buzz words do you? Fitz-Hugh-Curtis)

    Teaching
    Teaching medicine and taking care of the indigent with or wothout neurological complicatons of AIDS has been my life. My old residents still call me with their "tough" cases as many of you have heard the phone conversations. My fervent wish is that each and evryone of you becomes a truly stellar physician, ethical, professional and caring not to mention EXTREMELY competent. I am committed to MUA for the rest of my working days which I hope is a very long time. I intend to see the school grow and flourish and each of you i pray blossom in kind. We all have our strengths and weaknesses. Like my daddy used to stay whatever you know, know very well but most importantly know what you dont know and ask for help. I have had a lot of help going through some very tough transition especially from my friend and mentor Dr L a true genious of an organizer and teacher without compare. I am here for all of you always and my goal is for MUA to rise to the top where it almost is and where it belongs.I want to spend the rest of my life on this Island. I do love the people and have found my own little niche. BUT i will not rest until I have achieved everything I can possibly achieve for each of you at the school. I can't stop Dr K from taking her trip to an important conference for her scientific growth and as young professionals I expect you to understand things like that instantly and accept them. I can't always make a particulardoc do what I want as we do have academic freedom. But know this I breath, eat, sleep MUA and I won't stop until we have a situation where everybody wins. Again my door is always open and I am only a phone call away anytime. Dean t

    I second the motion

    I second the initial motion to find more positive attributes in MUA and discuss them here. Let the administration show us their stuff and give them a chance before ripping them apart.

    You have all said too much. I am a former student, current resident with much respect for Dean T. You have no idea how lucky you are. Give it a chance.

    wit

    That was very witty. The violin strings are the classical description of Fitz-Hugh Curtis syndrome. You can see them up in the liver. Quite a migration from the vagina. Which STD leads to this? Thanks to that picture you can make an association and hopefully never forget. That was over two years ago since I have thought of that. Great way to teach.

    I am not in Med school so I could be wrong, but during my nursing days at the STD clinic I believe GC is most common cause of this that causes a thining of the cervical lining. The result is bacteria migration to the lining of the liver (Glisson's or Glipson Capsule not sure). Not a med student but hope to start in Sept 08.

    Previously it was thought Neisseria Gonorhheae was the most common cause. Recent studies however show that Chlamydia Trachomatis outnumber NG by almost 5:1. Bacterial dissemination can be through the Right paracolic gutter, then to the subphrenic space, then to the hepatic surface. Hematogenous and lymphatic spread is also likely.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------

    At MUA I have met some of the most sincere, passionate, dedicated professors & medical practitioners I have encountered so far. Such that they will continue to be (for me) as a yard stick in all my future dealings with the people entrusted to my care:

    From Dr. MBE and her husband Dr. L.E. words I wont forget, "We have to try the hardest for the most difficult of our patients." Even to the one's who come in with the preconceived intent to sue you. There is a reason why they are acting like this. They may have been hurt emotionally and psychologically for a long time. They need your help and care. For those of you who have gone through a court ordeal, you know how difficult this is. Takes a lot of heart, dedication, and sincerity to do this.

    From Dr RL (previous Dean), "Dont forget we are not God's. We are human. Eventually we are bound to make mistakes. Do not hesitate to consult, when in doubt. If you make a mistake, do not hesitate to admit your mistake. Most of all, do not cover up or hide a mistake!" He also said, "Always strive to better yourself, and work for the best in every situation."

    With the professors I had at MUA, not only did they help shape me in the field of academics, they have also helped shape me as a person.

    Fantastic

    It is indeed fantastic to hear such inspirational postings! My time at MUA has shown me many things. I have learned more than just the Basic Sciences of medical school here. I have learned about the dedication and compassion of a very talented group of faculty. I have seen firsthand how struggling students have been able to get extra help and turn their problems around (not too common in a US school). And, there is no substitute for the experience of learning in this environment. I, for one, will miss my days here on Nevis ... ultimately I am aiming for my goal of being a great physician in the states ... but I will never forget my days here!
