    Advertisements



    hey guys, where can i find out basic info for Xavier? this board is not that busy, and i don't trust some of these carib school's website anyway.

    i'm just looking for basic information like licensure status in how many states, how hard is it go get clinics, are students waiting a long time between rotations, the USMLE Step 1 pass rate, and a year by year residency appointment list. where are these things?

    Accreditation in most states except (at the moment) NY, Florida and California..some states follow these states rules, i am not sure which states tho. For example NJ follows NY and Kansas follows California.. i think there are other but i am not 100% on them.
    Clinicals are available to all students that pass step1, however there are some clinical rotations spots that require a certain passing school to get into them. Students usually do not have to wait long in between clinicals as long as you inform the coordinator in proper time.
    Pass rate has been increasing each semester. Last time i checked with school out of the students that took step in the last year. i believe 50-60% of them passed the first time.
    Appointment residency list will not give the students name due to privacy.

    Thank you for the information. This basic information I find hard to come by from the school. But of course, that is the usual as with all caribbean medical schools. And people shouldn't believe everything that's on the website, I guess.

    I have been talking with the school admissions office, calling the NY office. And they told me the first time pass rate for USMLE Step 1 is 76-80%. Of course, this seemed high for a school that just started, admitting students with lower GPAs and no MCAT required.

    I had some other students from Facebook who tell me also that the USMLE pass rate is around 50% in recent semesters. It was even lower before, around 25-30%. But of course this is according to them. You have to dig through all sources of information, school admin. and students.
