    UMHS vs SMU vs MUA

    Advertisements



    I'm new here, and I'm sure this has been posted a few times, but hopefully someone can help me out. I got into all 3 schools, still waiting to here back from AUA. From what I've gathered so far, I've heard extremely mixed reviews. MUA mirrors Saba and people are saying it should receive CA approval soon. Is this true? I've also heard St. Matthew's lost it's Cali approval? I'm not sure what happened there, if anyone is able to explain it to me. Last, I know UMHS hasn't been accredited by anyone yet, but multiple people have told me that it is up and coming and could eventually enter the big 4. Does anyone have thoughts to this?

    Thank you.

    MUA is indeed the sister school of Saba. The owners of MUA and Saba recently look over the school of SMU. It is evident that the owners are putting more into MUA than SMU due to political and economic reasons. The island of Nevis (MUA) is much less developed than SMU (cayman islands) even though SMU needs the most help. Yes, SMU has cali disapproval but if you look into it, it's because the whole process was rushed. I believe MUA has NY and FL approval but I could be mistaken so please double check. SMU has both state approvals for sure. UMHS has neither but on the other hand seems to be a phenomenal school. With the Ross family molding this school you know they have the resources to make this university in the top 5 schools. They currently don't have NY or FL approval but according to their admin, NY should come by 2014. If I were deciding between the 3 schools you mentioned, I would probably go with MUA, UMHS then SMU. I chose this order because MUA has been around for a while and they have excellent residency placements each year. UMHS has the potential and as you can see even without many approvals students are still matching. Hope this helps. You can reply here or PM if you have specific questions. Best of luck!

    As a recent graduate of UMHS I can attest to the quality of education I recieved. Before attedning UMHS I was a student at SMU and I can tell you that UMHS is in a whole different category. SMU is focused on money and not on the student. UMHS was founded by the ROSS family the pioneers of offshore medical education. If there is any family in the Caribbean that knows how to make doctors its the ROSS family. The ROSS family has produced thousands of doctors more than SMU and MUA combined. The choice is clear you should not even be comparing those schools to UMHS.

    Since graduating from UMHS I have secured a residency and am on the road to a great career. SMU and MUA can get you where you want to be but there will be no personal touch to your education. If you want small class sizes, amazing faculty and a school that will stand behind you then you should come to UMHS. I left SMU becasue I was unhappy with the school and I wasn't the only person. If you want to talk about the options you have please send me a private message and I'll give you my contact infromation and we can talk over the phone. Make a decison that will give you the least resistance.

    In terms of the state approvals those are aorund the corner. California will be the last state approval the school will go for, which is projected for 2014. Florida and New York approvals are projected for within a year. UMHS is fighting to the top, why? Because they are the ROSS family and they won't stop until they have the best school in the caribbean.
