SDN Members don't see this ad. About the ads. I am a 4th year pre-med student at NYIT and I was wondering what really happened in Grenada as a result of the hurricane? What were the real reasons that led to the decision to move students to U.S. locations? I also want to say that before people start answering this, please be respectful of IMGs, Caribbean medical schools, etc. I goto NYIT in Long Island, New York, and I can say through my experience at NYIT that just because a educational institution is within the United States does not make it inherently better than any other learning institution anywhere in the world. Therefore for anyone to condemn Caribbean medical schools as being inferior is really giving off very arrogant, elitist vibes, which really have no place in the mindset of physicians. Furthermore, for any human being to have the oppurtunity to study medicine anywhere in the world is a real honor and great oppurtunity. What if we all grew up in the Caribbean, Asia, or Africa and decided to goto medical schools of our home country? How would we feel if some American students doctors looked down upon our schools? Thanks for reading that everyone. I didn't mean to ramble. Just wanted to express my views.
