    Transferring to Windsor

    Advertisements



    Hello I am interested in transferring to Windsor from another Caribbean Medical School. I finished basic sciences and will be taking step 1 with them hopefully and continuing onto clinical clerkships with them.
    Where do they do their clinical clerkships? I heard of Houston being an option , but is there anywhere else?
    In regards to financing, do they have loan options for US students?

    Please dont reply if you are only gonna question why I am transferring.

    Regards and thanks !

    You cannot tell me what to do! Why are you transferring?

    In all seriousness, your lack of response should let you know what is on everyone's mind. Do not go to Windsor and go to a school that is CAAM-HP certified; Save your money and go somewhere worth your time.

    To be honest, Windsor is less expensive comparing to other schools and clinical training is done in similar hospitals. Less money is always better. I am sure eventually Windsor will also get the CAAM-HP accrediation for which at least there is few years time left. Other schools are not bad either but Windsor can prove lot less expensive comparing to other Caribbean schools. One of my friend transferred to Windsor, passed her STEP1/2 and doing the clinical rotations now. Use your best judgment and every individual is different.

    The administration at this school is biased, dishonest, and criminal. Don't be fooled by the low prices. It comes at the cost of utilizing the excuse disorganization to justify negligence/injustice.

    At the end of the day all Caribbean schools are in business to make money and provide opportunity to take the STEP1 exam and do clinical rotations. it is up to students to study and pass the STEP1 and other exams. The cost of learning is always a factor. One could study at top 5 caribean schools but that will cost arm and teeth, still the students has to study and prove them self in the exams. There is no magic bullet for studying medicine. It takes lot of hardwork and dedication to get the the finish line. All the best.

    While that may be true, the school and faculty also have a vital role in regards to molding the students into doctors and encouraging their pupil's progress in all aspects of education. Arm and teeth? If the extra cost means a better quality of education and making YOUR life easier then so be it; When it comes to your future, do not be cheap!

    Windsor is a growing school and there will be some growing pains(such as not having accreditation from the island it is located on) In the future could Windsor be a great school? Sure, but until Windsor has the credentials to back up what they proclaim, do not hesitate to look at different schools.

    Oh and yes, there are loan options for US students...it's called your parents. Seeing as how Windsor got into legal trouble with the US Government in regards to school loans, do not expect a school loan from any US banks. I know some people who took online courses at Davenport and Walden(I think that's the name) who got loans that way, but that is the only way I heard for getting school loans so far. Also, though it has been a while, from what I remember, there are rotations set up in the Chicago area as well as the Houston area.
