    COME TO ST. MARTINUS

    Anyone interested in getting a degree in medicine, unhappy with their current school, or just afraid of making the leap into a new school, should come to St. Martinus. I moved here in september, and Im so glad I did.
    The temperature is always nice and I get to wear shorts to school. I'm from Canada and the last thing I want to see for a good portion of my life is snow.
    I was worried about moving to a new shcool, but now I feel those worries were unfounded.
    This school is taking off, in the last three monthes things have really started changing and with more students this place will only get better.
    If anyone has any questions and would like a student who is currently studying here to answer, I am more then happy to help out.

    In response to michke

    Advertisements



    Dear Mr ***** *****
    Curaca is as safe as anywhere Iíve been in the world.
    The Carribean on the whole is a COMPARATIVIELY place to visit or live.

    Yes there are murders In Curacao, but there have been murders in the world since Cain killed his brother Abel, and since Lamech killed a man for wounding him and another for hurting him c.f Genesis 4.

    There are murders everywhere, this is because the heart is decietful and desperately wicked.

    Despite the occasional murder, this does not stop the myriads of folk who travel to this little island..

    Every day one or two large cruise liners dock in the port here and discharge thousands of happy tourists who return to their ships in safety.


    Have you ever been to the USA michke? Perhaps not. I guess ***** ***** ***** ***** *****? You should go to Brooklyn NY or Miami FL or Orlando, where folk are murdered almost daily, and the hearing of gunshots nightly is substituted for seeing the stars in the sky.

    In Curacao, usually when you here noises that sound like gun shots, you can safely look out side because it is some one discharging some colorful firework into the sky. They seem to love to do that.

    If you are ***** ***** ***** ***** to go to the average US city, where a killing is as routine as the rising of the sun and the going down of the same, why not read this article about the 16-year-old boy who killed nine people and then himself this week in Minnesota while wearing a bullet-proof vest when he chased a teacher and fellow students into a classroom and gunned them down.

    Note that this article points out that this was the worst U.S. school shooting since the 15-death Columbine massacre in 1999

    As you can see this is relatively routine in the USA. School boy mass killers.

    Now this stuff does not happen in the Carribbean.
    As a Carribbean man, I will not stand idly by and let you write such drivel on this forum, and get away with it
    Now when you have read this article, go let ***** ***** ***** *****.

    Crime on Curacao

    Here's some more information about crime on Curacao to shed some more light on this. Regarding murders and violent assaults, as I mentioned before, most of them appear to be drug-related or adultery-related. I don't claim to know what exact proportion, but only to give what I would consider a reasonable and fairly informed assessment of the situation.

    A few years ago, the government of the Netherlands paid for the installation of screening equipment at the airport on Curacao, through which suspected "mules" (people who have swallowed balloons filled with drugs) must pass or forfeit their airline ticket. This has slowed down drugs leaving Curacao but has had the effect of increasing the competition between the drug smugglers, increasing the frustration of drug smugglers toward their unsuccessful mules, and other such unforseen effects.

    The result has been a sharp increase in the number of murders on the island since the equipment was installed. That is why I say, both from this more theoretical viewpoint and from the news reports on many of these murders (i.e., being obvious "hits" or executions), that if you are not involved in the drug trade or engaged in adultery, you have relatively little chance of being murdered on Curacao.

    On a positive note, although the government always knew it must committ itself to increase the guarding of the coast through new Coast Guard boats, new radar equipment, and such things, recently it has begun to do so. So the amount of drugs entering the country will also start to decrease. The government also realizes it just can't "shut off the tap" without negative consequences, and that it must also be committed to education (e.g., recent intoduction of the D.A.R.E. program) and treatment.

    One other point I want to make with reference to numbers of criminal acts, as reported in the report in Dutch. (Hint: www.worldlingo.com is a great translation site!) The crime figures here on Curacao are not very reliable. The murder figures will be (because of the severe and permanent nature of the crime) but I'm not confident in the number of assaults reported there, and for any other crimes reported on Curacao.

    I recently completed a research study for the Department of Children and Youth Services on the risk for the development of juvenile delinquency in the various neighbourhoods of the islands of the Netherlands Antilles, using data from the 2001 census. I had hoped to conduct a logistic regression analysis using crime data from the police. However, as I and other researchers have experienced, it is very difficult to even collect the data--different police precincts code the crimes differently, little of it has been entered into computerized database, there is no central registry of crimes (like the FBI Uniform Crime Reports in the USA), and so on. As a result, I would be cautious in declaring how much of any particular crime actually occurs on the island.

    No

    NO American type schools MD's are accepted in the islands.
    You are accepted only AFTER you have specialized and become Board Certified.

    Persons with the MBBS degree from a British type school are accepted in the British West Indies, those who went to school in Holland are accpted with that qualification.

    Hope that answers your question.

    it is just a matter of time. Everything being done is different. Two semesters, research and great academics.
    SMUFOM is the only medical school in Curacao with Clinical Rotations and Research.
