    Intec vs Unibe

    I have been snooping around the internet and i have heard alot about INTEC (besides the fact that all of the courses are in spanish) it is a very good choice, Can anybody who has more experience on the subject of medical schools say what would be a better choice if it were not for the language factor where would one get a better education Unibe or INTEC. Would it be safe to say that these are the two best medical schools in the Dominican Republic at the moment. and one other thing I know that the GPA requirement for Unibe is 2.5 on a scale of 4.0 but what is the GPA requirement for Intec.

    Thank you and god bless,
    Castillo

    The one thing one cannot complain about in INTEC is the quality of the teachers. 90% of the faculty is what I would describe as excellent...they really know their stuff....and most are great at relaying that knowledge to their students.
    We have a handful of what we call the "hard-***" teachers...they are excellent too...their method of teaching is just a little more in your face than perhaps the conventional north american university professor (I can make the comparison after a four year pre-med education in Canada). But at the end of the day they want to bring out the best in the students.
    So these "hard-***" teachers are what many people who have transferred from INTEC med to another institution would perhaps see as "rude".

    The advantage in INTEC and the spanish program in UNIBE (we share alot of the same teachers) is that the teachers are giving the class in their native language and so we the students are able to get the most out of their classes.

    INTEC has its little faults like any institution....but I've been here for 3 years...I'm one year away from being an Intern....and I haven't regretted my decision yet.

    Haha...i'm guessing that would be Dr. D! You'll get used to him....right now you think he's "jodiendo"...but when you get to clinical rotations...and a "know it all" 3rd year resident asks you what kind of cells you find in the bladder...Dr. D will suddenly pop in your head!

    Keep at it! Any questions...estoy a su orden

    A word about nasty teachers from retrospect

    When we/I were students, many are naive and idealistic believing all doctors are kind caring lovely courteous people.

    I wish this this were the case. Looking back at medical college in La RD, and residency training in USA I can state the following;

    There are nasty, horrible doctors that can make your/our lives terrible. The ones encountered in university are just the introduction. I know it can be very tough to deal with these select few gifts to humanity.

    I have dealt with truly despicable attending physicians during residency training. They are typically renowned as being that way and often upper level residents will warn you and give you advice on how to survive. Some are only nasty to IMG's while others are universally nasty. I would say many have personality disorders beit inferiority complexes.... chemical addiction is also present in some.

    Even as a senior resident I recall nasty attendings. One such famous person was an ID guy that called me a moron because of the way I pronounced Cecil, the well known medical textbook. I pronounced it the way my teachers did, the British english way, in actuality, the technically correct way; The Queens English, the original English. Anyway, after tolerating the ID rotation and passing I politely educated this guy about The Queens English pronuncion and why many believe it to be more correct.

    Even as an attending myself I have had to deal with beligerant doctors. One such amazing guy, a neurosurgeon, routinely called me numerous 4 letter and other descriptive street words when I called him about an ER patient (he was oncall)

    Another one was a very bright cardiologist that used similar vocabulary along with demeaning low level vernacular, even when calling him about his own patients. He routinely made nurses and cath lab techs cry.

    Another fine example of humanity was an alcoholic urologist that cursed me out with slurred speech because I was unable to perform urologic surgery(something I am not trained in) and he was in no shape to get to the next room let alone the hospital.

    But, the above docs generated much revenue with their procedures so administration tolerated it.


    So, for all you idealistic students, my wisdom to share with you is the above are the exception and not the rule. The majority of your colleagues are good people, embrace them.
    ================================================== =
    Take this soul, strand it in some skin and bones
    take this soul. and make it sane, sane

    what no man can own..... only God can take
    take this heart, take this heart. take this heart

    and let it break
