    I plan on attending usat(university of science in montserrat)help if you have info

    my friend told me about this school and i know very little about the school, since i got MERP by Ross i decided to find out move about it. They have distance learning for student that already have professional degrees in chiropractic, physician assistant and so on. it's only a 2 year and 1/2 program including clinical rotation. classes are held in Miami once a month.

    In response to lovely03, USAT does not offer distance learning to anyone in the MD program. It is entirely in residence/on-site training. I am a MD graduate of USAT and all of my basic science training was conducted in the classroom with clinical training in qualified Florida hospitals with licensed physicians. If the University offers any distance learning programs, they are not for the MD program; I can assure you of that. Good luck to you.

    If you are already a chiro/PA, then you should look into getting a loan directly from Ross. I believe they do monthly payments for MERP for people that can't get the loan.

    The program is not recognized by CARICOM and that could present a problem

    I cannot get a straight answer anywhere on the internet about what states USAT grads have gotten residencies and licensure. Since you are a Grad, I figured you could help. I am EMED PA. I want to go back to med school. However, I want to work when I graduate.

    Wow!! take a look at USAT's website. If you honestly look through their website and read up about this school and still think it's a good idea to go there... should you really be a a doctor?!?! First, I've never heard of this school and I've been researching international medical schools for about 6 years... There is no mention anywhere on the website of where their graduates obtain residency... or how many actually graduate. And I love when under accreditation, schools put down that their students are able to sit for the USMLE... which essentially means absolutely nothing! This school isn't even listed anywhere on the California medical board (approved/disapproved/or otherwise). Schools like this give Caribbean/offshore schools a bad name!

    If you can't get into Ross, AUC, SGU, SABA you should improve your application until you can... Not getting into a US medical school is understandable... the many success stories from the aforementioned Caribbean universities proves that... however, if you're unable to get into a respectable Caribbean medical school, where do you draw the line? at what point do you question if you are qualified to become a doctor.

    I saw the school online and have heard about it through various people.
    For me personally getting into one of the other schools is no problem. My
    CV and transcripts speak for themselves. As a PA it's hard to stomach going back
    for 4 more years. A lot (you may wish to debate this) of what we learned is exactly the same and taught in exactly the same format with the same texts and in the same order. I work in an ER. I see the same patients as my MD colleagues do. I treat them the same. I have worked in both academic and private ER's. So when a school like USAT comes along and offers a bridge program it's very tempting. However, I can totally see how it would not be a sound move academically and professionally. The California licensure issue is used as the holy Grail of litmus tests. It should be
    Noted that there are some schools who do not or have not made it past this hurdle.
    What's odd is that I have worked with fantastic MD's who went to the islands to get their degrees and their schools did not get California approval.
    I wish you the absolute best of luck in your residency. And many happy and satisfying years as a clinician!

    Thank you for the well wishes. However, 4 years is such a brief period of time in the grand scheme of things (when you consider undergrad, med school, residency, and/or fellowship). I have no doubt that an individual who is destined to be an exceptional physician will become one regardless of where he/she attends medical school... however, with how competitive obtaining residency is becoming... It is my opinion that you're really shooting yourself in the foot by choosing a substandard/questionable school (at best)... and for what? saving yourself a year?

    As far as PA... I'm sure there will be many courses you'll take during medical school that will be extremely painful... especially many of the clinical courses... and I do agree that many of the courses one takes in PA school parallel the courses one takes while in medical school... However, the detail by which you will be expected to recall and apply the information in medical school is at a much higher level... This is what I've heard from many of the PAs in my class... Don't short change yourself! If you're really going to pursue your M.D., obtain it from as respectable of a school as you can. I guess what I'm trying to say, is if you're going to do it, do it right! I wish you the best of luck!~
