Its a money making thing ( private school) and they have franchised out to Boniare and Panama and I understand ready to open a 4th location, maybe they will be the McDonalds of the Caribbean Medschools ( to my knowledge only a handful have graduated? and these were transfers I think they started in 2003? check IMED) You would think they would get better established before taking on all these locations? They still have a lot to do like get approvals and accreditations.

BTW this is not a BASH I do not need to just tell the truth is enough LOL.......................

You ever heard the saying one bad apple spoils the bunch. Well in the caribbean theres alot of bad apples and a few sweet cherries. If you go to an apple will you become an MD? Besides getting too much fructose in your diet your going to have a more difficult road. I think you should look at the cherries but don't swallow a pit or break a tooth. :p

So what exactly is wrong with Xavier? They are accredited by WHO.. so what else do they need?

Any thoughts?

Well only the Aruba Campus is WHO listed
No approvals by any states yet. There are other sorted things I do not wish to get into..................

(There is no such thing as WHO Accreditation)

They need a lot - the list is pretty long. They are a new unproven school. Yes, they have transfer grads, Their clinicals are at GMC in the Atlanta area.
