    Because SGU has a campus in the UK and Ross does not.

    Auc has clinicals in UK too and they don't have a UK campus...I heard there are advantages of doing clinicals in UK as long as it isn't core rotations...

    I don't know of any advantages if you're to match in the US. US hospitals prefer USCE and LOR from US Residency programs. AUC probably has these affiliations as their island was (until recently) part of the Netherlands and affiliations were easier. Also they were probably cheaper than US hospitals (pure speculation). Either way it in no way makes a school inferior because they don't have European affiliations unless you have some desire to practice in Europe later on.

    I personally know of a third year IM resident from SMU who did a full year in UK, electives and some cores, and obtained many interviews and matched in IM in St Louis in 2010.
