    Hope Medical Institute.... should I use them?

    Advertisements



    I called them up today to ask some questions about the schools, programs, ect. The individual I spoke to seem very helpful and knew what he was talking about. What makes me lean towards applying there is that I can either go to silesia or lublin which are recognized by new york state as far as liscensure and they have rotations at 2 hospitals in nyc. Can anyone else shine some light on this? Is this a scam? Should I even mess with european schools all together?

    DO NOT USE AGENTS! They will take your money and do nothing that you can't do yourself! Talk directly to the school. Is as simple as getting their phone number online! If the school tells you to talk to the agent then call a different school!

    yea i did some research..... hmi is a joke, the schools are horrible. Good thing there are sites like this one. Thanks guys. However, I was reading about Univ or Warsaw and Lodz, they are supposedly the top 2 schools in poland. Anyone can shine some light on these schools?

    Absolutely not. Don't use agents. There are plenty of European schools to choose from that you don't need the resources of an agent.

    What if you used an agent for your first year? Does it mean you have to continue using the agent if you stay at that school? A friend of mine is at Lodz. He just began and is a little disgusted with AIM at the moment. AIM says they can get you rotations back in the US though so I'm not sure if it is possible to get that without using them. Do you know anything about that?

    HMI is well known for lies and corruption. My advice, stay clear away.

    This topic is debated elsewhere, but nevertheless... agents do NOTHING that you cannot do yourself (and many of them are totally sketchy). Application, setting up rotations, all of that stuff can be done (probably more reliably) on your own. Educate yourself, learn exactly what is required, and tell these "agencies" to get lost. They are absolutely NOT worth your money.

    What if someone wants to do all or a majority of their rotations in the U.S? Can this be realistically setup without the use of a agent?
