    Advertisements



    Nasser just gave an announcment to the 3rd semester class.

    pretty much everything will stay the same. Miami is a go, Maine will be open next semester. Cayman 5th semester will be opened for students with issues ( IE visa, financial, Etc)


    Only thing thats up in the air is the delivery of the kaplan course in Maine. Whether to have live lectures or to link it up from Miami through TV. Pretty much a live link up. He said he would have word tomorrow about this.


    Didnt say if next semester will be the last semester in Maine. But you could pretty much bet on it. Due to the long term contract with Miami

    instead of dwelling on the negative dwell on the positive. Yes for many there will be a language barrier but you will still be treating a human being. Medicine is more than just being able to speak the same language. Working with non english patients will allow you to improve on other areas that is needed for diagnosis. Such as body language and you will also learn that there are universal signals for certain ailments. It will also teach you patience and hopefully for the majority increase your compassion for other human beings.

    For alot of students from less ethnic diverse areas this will be a culture shock. So this will be a good preview of what you would experience during your rotations in hospitals located in the lower socio economic areas of major cities. A huge majority of the student population will rotate in NYC and Chigago. I am from NY and I know these hospitals very well. Trust me most of the patients you are going to interact with will be immigrants and a good chunk of them will barely know any english or any english at all.

    I am sure this language barrier issue is being over exagerated. I know this is a bummer for alot, but lets try to focus on the positive.

    I completely agree with Azulpanther. I would see this as an opportunity to make yourself more competitive in the medical field, because knowing 2 languages will only benefit you in the long run.
