They look ok - the classes are taught in English, etc. Is anyone else looking at them? Any opinions?
You're going to be an FMG whether you go the Poland or to the Carrib. So why not at least choose the location that's warm and beautiful? I've always figured that getting to live on an island paradise is a pretty good consolation prize for not making into a US school.
poland has a few english language medical programs, specifically for american and other international students. They're known for it. People do very well for themselves in matching out of the jagiellonian university, which is considered the best, you just need to do well, like you would anywhere. And my point about my sister was not about the school or how well she personally does on tests, my point was, she didn't have to do exceptionally well to have opportunities for residency. Krakow is actually an amazing city as well. Obviously anyone should check out what they're getting into, but i'm just relaying the information I have, and my impressions, which mostly, have been positive.
Well.....DO schools teach you to give backrubs.....so I guess this is their version of that. Do perogies have any historical medical application that won't stand up to close scrutiny and have true believers still insist on teaching about them anyhow?I hear they teach you how to make pergoies...yum yum

For which treatment theory: perogies or OMM?Oh ouch, you do know some of the applications are well proven. Some people call that evidence based medicine. Others call it science.
thnx for the info...i'm actually thinking of lublinmy sister is graduating from the medical school in krakow, poland this spring. She didn't get into schools in the U.S. so she went there and it's been a great experience for her. She's done a year of clinicals in the U.S. and has had residency interviews for neurology all over the U.S. so it's worked out pretty well. I'm considering going as well if I don't get an acceptance here. I'd rather go there than the Caribean. Sure, you're on an island, but i'd rather be in europe so I can travel a bit as well, and the school has been around for a long time and has a very good reputation, even in the states. Also, Krakow is an amazing city, tons of history, culture, and a lot of students/young people.
thnx for the info...i'm actually thinking of lublin
