I am planning to take the online medical basic science with this school and do clinical rotation in Chicago,IL. Does any one has any information regarding the school and the program that i am about to enter. Your responses will be greatly appreciated.
On-line programs have been discussed ad nauseum on this and the Everybody (or was it Allopathic) forums. The general consensus is that currently medicine is too conventional to accept basic science work completed on-line, even thought it may seem convenient and a great way to learn.
I would seriously encourage you to contact the Illinois State Medical Board to inquire about licensing requirements. You may find that you will be ineligible for a license to practice medicine if you have not completed 40 months of ON-SITE medical education (eg, on-line basic sciences may not wash). Make sure you ascertain whether Antigua is listed in the WHO directory and whether you will be eligible for ECFMG certification as well. Talk with some PDs and see whether they would be interested in a degree from there.
I realize that this may seem to be a great option for a working adult who wishes not to leave his hometown, but IMHO you will be losing more than you will gain by going this route.
