    Bonaire is set to become a direct part of the Netherlands as a special municipality on October 10, 2010. What does this mean if anything for Saint James School of Medicine? Thanks for any replies

    SOmething I posted on this earlier

    NVAO Actions Netherland Antilkles NVAO Dutch Govt Agency That Will
    NVAO is the new Dutch govt agency that will oversee medical schools and other higher education institutions in the near future in the areas that are going under Dutch govt semi-control.

    Congratulations to Saba on NVAO's initial inspection

    http://www.nvao.net/assessed-programme/detail/2959

    For the other schools that were evaluated I don't find you so if I was a student at the other schools I'd ask my administration to show me the results of the initial NVAO survey to find out why you didn't get a positive approval like Saba. Ask them what this means in the new year when NVAO takes over recognition of medical schools as it relates to IMED and getting licensed in the US. azskeptic

    10-10-2010 or 10-10-2110. A lot of resistence and no confidence between the partners in the game.

    recognition

    Only school in their market place that probably could meet the Dutch standards at this time.

    I didn't really expect SJSM to be on there but I did expect to see AUC since SABA was on there.

    Not all islands in the Antilles are being integrated into the Netherlands in the same way, that is why you don't see AUC.

    First of all, it was not an 'approval' or 'accreditation' but positive results of an initial visit. That's not to diminish it at all but let's get our terms correct.

    Second, Saba is very PR focused and put on a great show highlighting their strengths and minimising their weaknesses. Good for them!

    Don't know much about the Bonaire schools other than that SJSM is famously cheap about everything and probably put the NVAO team up in tents on the beach and made them walk to the meetings.

    Sint Eustatius is a joke and on the verge of bankruptcy. Their faculty turnover is tremendous and they had and lost NY approval. 'Nuff said.

    As far as the other schools, did AUC or the non-BES island schools get a visit? Please fill me in if you know.

    SJSM, Sint Eustatius, etc., will survive the political and economical storms. I have been reading similar posts for several years. Sint Eustatius did not lose NY approval (they never had it). They never made a formal application for approval. There have been informal discussions with NY in the past. According to the management, they still have plans for making formal application.
