CEO Milo Pinckney of American University Responds to Criticism of Offshore Medical School

CE) Milo Pinckney

The following was posted to the Barbados Medical Corner page by Milo Pinckney, CEO of the company that operates the American University of Integrated Sciences (AUIS) – Barbados Underground

I have read through the comments made by Georgie Porgie, Hal Austin and others about the Medical schools opening on Barbados. While it is true that 31 medical schools have opened throughout Caribbean islands since 1972, and that some are in fact sub par. The whole truth is, that this situation is not universally descriptive of the entirety of US based Caribbean Medical school community. St Georges, Ross, AUC, AUIS, Saba, UMHS, AUA and others are fine institutions with successful graduates practicing throughout the US and Canada. In fact the physician referenced in one of the earlier post, Dr. Saxton is an AUIS graduate who serves as Chief of Pediatrics at a teaching hospital here in the US and visits Barbados regularly to teach and supervise Bariatric Medicine service at the Barbados Defense Force facility.

Having said that, let me make it clear that I respect every individual’s right to an opinion on the subject of Barbados Medical School proliferation, but I encourage any contributor to offer an educated and fact based opinion not one promoting a negative, uninformed personal agenda.

To that end let me introduce some verifiable facts to the discussion. As of 2016 the US is projecting a 250,000 physician shortage by 2025. As of 2013 29% of all physicians practicing in US hospitals are foreign trained physicians or what is generally identified as IMG/FMG.

The greater majority of US based offshore medical schools are delivering an identical US compliant Allopathic Curriculum, tailored to meet the educational parameters of the USMLE board examination; which is required to be sat by all medical graduates from any and all schools across the world prior to entering a US residency program. If one was to look at the history of the seven schools i have earlier mentioned here, they will find that all of them have graduated in excess of thousand physicians who are practicing, teaching, or doing valuable research. The common net thread is that they are all making a needed positive contribution to health delivery resources available to the populations they serve.

Now, allow me to address the specific situation in Barbados. The proliferation of schools slated for Barbados says more about Barbados than it does about Caribbean Medical schools. Barbados is an Island that for the past 20 plus years has made significant investment in education. It has one of the highest literacy rates of any developed nation. It has a large concentration of skilled retired physicians who have practice experience from around the US, Canada, UK, hell the world. If you were to be an educator in the offshore medical sector, where would you go to set up shop?
Now there is always an ignorant population frightened by that which they don’t know or don’t understand. It’s human nature. The schools opening on the island will not adversely impact upon the local physician practices, Hospital services or clinical labor pool. The historical facts have proven to the contrary on every island that has invited schools to come.

~The fraudulent claim that Students in the local hospital cause disruption to local healthcare delivery.
Fact: for US based ECFMG compliant programs the students are required to complete all their clinical rotations in US or Canadian hospitals. Thus no impact to the local facility

~ The claim that all the schools are run by crooks, shysters, used car salesmen and alike.
Fact: If one were to look at the Board of Trustees of AUIS they will see recognized leaders from a broad spectrum of notable US enterprises. The AUIS board has the former council to the NYS board of regents; the highest educational body in the state. Two CEO’s of US regulated insurance companies, the Vice Chair of the worlds largest airline restructuring firm, a Harvard trained physician and 25 year veteran Barbados Honorary Council, an architect who restored the Queens Buckingham palace after fire, an internationally recognized educator/author who designed the Marriott hotel chains training program and a number of other leaders of similar scope and prestige. An additional element that warrants mention is that none of the seated board members has any financial interest in the institution and volunteer their time. A doctrine installed by the owners so as to ensure that the economic drivers never compromise the academic integrity of the institution.

~ The claim that the instructors are a collection of unqualified quacks.
Fact: AUIS faculty is comprised 88% licensed physicians with practice experience holding MD/PHD degrees, 10% licensed physician holding MD or MBBS degrees and 2% PHD degree holders teaching in non clinical elements of the curriculum.

~ The claim that “All these offshore schools come to the islands to take and give nothing in exchange.”
Fact: AUIS has offered the people of Barbados and the government access to its sister company resources to address clinical access deficiencies experienced by the other resident schools, AUIS has already hired local employees and is committed to annual increases in domestic hiring, AUIS has offered the Department of Health and Education revenue producing and performance enhancing tech that will benefit Barbados in the collection and use of health population data and education performance standards.

We could easily continue this thread beyond these paragraphs, but I suspect that any reader with an interest in the truth will see that all apples in the barrel are not the same and that a great deal of relevant data is missing from the dialog.

AUIS welcomes any guest from the Barbados community that wishes to invest the time learn more about what having a US medical school like AUIS on your island really means to the island. Call, come visit our facility, ask the tough questions and demand frank and honest answers. I am a child raised by a mother from the islands who has nothing but respect for my culture and heritage. It is with that background that I came to Barbados to contribute to the community and help my students attain their dreams, give back to a people that look like me and yes, make a fair earning from my efforts, for which i make no apology. Barbados is your home, we are simply invited guest that wish to honor your hospitality with the highest academic standards of performance. You have the right to expect nothing less from us.

But please. Do not speak on what you have not investigated. Do not see all apples as the same, some are green, red and yellow and they all taste a bit different.

But most of all, lead with intellect not ignorance and pridefulness.

The introduction of these schools will be as positive as the Barbados community and government allows them to be. They can be tremendous economic engines shifting tax liability away from the citizens, they can be active contributors to restoring the local economy, drivers of trade and job creators, expanders of tourism and industry. They can be wildly beneficial to the island if they are responsibly managed and embraced as opposed to feared and corrupted by personal interest.

I speak exclusively for AUIS when I make the following offer of statement:

AUIS offers the people of Barbados access to all of it’s proprietary technology and trade methods to contribute to the economic recovery of the island. Only through this kind of partnership will the school and the island benefit equitably and indefinitely.

Let the truth ring out load [loud]!

  • Our truths include

    (1) That poor countries like Barbados cannot sustain the industrialization of medicine as the writer assumes and for us prevention could be far cheaper that the westernized care model. No problem with high science but a Cuban delivery system would be much better for us.

    (2) That the medical schools dotting the Caribbean maybe a good business for some but in the final analysis are no more than the kind of outsourcing which happens to countries like Bangladesh in relation to the clothing industry

    (3) That the medical schools do not come unaccompanied. Along with them they bring ‘big pharma’. And ‘big pharma’ have a checkered past even in developed countries. WE HAVE NEVER KNOWN ANYBODY FROM THESE ISLANDS WHO WAS COMPENSATED FOR INJURY OR DEATH CAUSED BY PHARMACUETICALS. We highly doubt whether more than 1% of your students are polymaths.

    (4) Why is it that people like the writer of this article would seek, under the cloak of some special medical knowledge’, not unlike Georgie Porgie, would seek to protect himself from criticism. No one discipline can make such a general claim.

    (5) The article by assuming western medicine as the gold standard, does not give the reading the truth about outcomes. It does not say, for example, that 120K people die in the USA every year from medical error. Another large number from infections contracted in hospitals. That the industry faces a galloping number of law suits which themselves prevent many practitioners from doing their work. On and on

    (6) Allopathic medicine has always sought to relegate alternative modalities to the province of the unscientific. Part of the function of medical schools are to extend the colonial project, just like Christianity did, is doing. Do you know what ‘bush tea’ is good for? Or do you teach about it in your monetized schools? Does your pharmacopeia includes and studies ‘bush tea’?

    (7) We have more rejoinders

    It is noteworthy that in his exegesis that he does not list XAVIER medical school in Aruba, at which he was CFO and CEO &PRESIDENT as one of what he considers one of the stellar offshore schools.

    After all it seems he led its demise.

    If you read about XAVIER on valueMD or Higher Ed jobs ads, you will find that for the last ten years or so, the posts about Xavier are far from flattering, and that staff do not last there long, and that any one time there are multiple advertised vacancies for lecturers.

    Xavier is a most unethical school that started in Bonaire, by going next door and literally stealing its first students and staff members from St James medical school. It also sent its scout to curacao in early 2005 to poach students from a school there.

    Xavier later moved to Aruba, where it continued its unethical practices to both staff and students as reported on valueMD.

    XAVIER WAS ALSO KNOWN FOR RACISM AT THE TIME THAT YOU POINT OUT THAT PICKNEY WAS THERE.

  • This Pickney fool wants to educate us about offshore bogus Medical Schools.

    He started by misinforming us that “31 medical schools have opened throughout Caribbean islands since 1972”. Of course this is quite false, as the first schools came into existence in 1978.

    I personally sat in 1979 in an Anatomy session in the very first batch at Ross (then called the University of Dominica) in the lobby of a motel out side of Roseau, as a visitor and a guest of my cousin.

    When SGU transferred operations to the St Joseph Hospital here in Barbados, following the American intervention into Grenada, I had the privilege of performing Kocher’s maneuver on one of their students with a dislocated shoulder. One of my friends from the UWI class of 80 was then teaching Anatomy for SGU.

    Let us talk about all of these schools that failed and caused tremendous grief to students.
    In 2002, there was a school in Nevis run by a Trinidadian doctor, which eventually transferred to Belize. When this doctor died, his wife, a nurse tried unsuccessfully to carry on operations.
    Soon thereafter MUA-Belize flunked.

    Around late 2004 St Christopher which operated in England with a charter from Senegal experienced its demise with great disruption to the lives of many.

    When when certain teachers at IUHS in St Kitts quit, this school engaged a man who had not passed his ECFMG exams as the President of this essentially ONLINE MEDICAL SCHOOL IUHS closed temporarily, but eventually resurfaced as an ONLINE MEDICAL SCHOOL

    The unqualified ex President of IUHS then went on to establish St THERESA MEDICAL SCHOOL , in St Kitts, which met an early demise.

    Windsor operated for a good while in an old shed on the Basseterre docks, until it developed its current building in Cayon. It then was blessed with many students. Because of its unethical practices it is currently on the brink, with very few students enrolling for the last two semesters.

    Burnett Medical School, founded by a Haitian RC priest and educator, began in Haiti before transferring to St Kitts where it operated above an auto parts store before reaching its demise.

    Malik’s attempt in St Kitts did not get too far, especially after one of its very few students posted several photos on ValueMD of its most unsanitary environs, which I witnessed for myself.

    St Helens opened with a bang with great intent in late 2012 and lovely content on its website, but had descended into the abyss within 2 years.

    St Martinus was closed temporarily in 2008 after its owner failed to pay the staff for three months or more……and they left en masse.

    Then there was SPSOM/IMSA/JBGDL cerca 2006-2009
    Oh the woe suffered by hundreds of students who paid good money to attend these schools!

    AUIS was St Eustatius up to about a year ago. This school was started in a garage on this Dutch island by a British trained doctor who defected from Saba, and then went on to become the first Dean in a school in Curacao.

    With the history of a failed CEO of XAVIER, in charge of AUIS, CAN WE REALLY EXPECT A GREAT DEAL FROM THIS BOGUS MEDICAL SCHOOL?

    Let us talk about the unethical practices witnessed at bogus offshore schools, and we will not mention the myriad of instances reported on ValueMD since its advent cerca January/February 2003.

    Lets talk about the school that operated one month crash courses for its students who were nurses, and chiropractors mainly.

    Lets talk about how many of these doctors could not be licensed in their states.

    Lets talk about all the unethical things the owner of that School did.
    He so had the politicians on his payroll, that on arriving on that island’s airport, you did not have to go through customs, since his night time driver, was an airport red cap who would take your baggage and whisk you away.

    Lets talk about the teacher who was offered a job at XAVIER,under your watch to teach Biochemistry, and when you allrealized he was black you said that your Organic Chemistry teacher would teach the Biochem. It is well known that that did not happen because the did not have a clue!

    Lets talk about the black teacher who was fired at a school because his knowledge, medical experience and efficiency was far superior to both the Dean, and his colleagues.

    This black man was replaced by a man who was not a doctor or a PhD in any of the Basic Sciences, and who had a history of exchanging grades for sex, a practice for which he was subsequently fired.

    Pickney, lets talk about the Dean of the school who cussed one of his female students in front of staff one Bank Holiday because she would not pass up the “pussy.”

    Lets talk about the schools that fail students unfairly and then charge them exorbitant fees for “ retakes.”

    Lets talk about the fact that there are no external examiners at any of these schools to supervise exams as is the case at UWI.

    Does your school bring in external examiners, who are not only eminent physicians from the UK, the US and Canada, and often the author of text books men of the caliber of Sir Harold Ellis?

    Lets talk about the owner and President of the school, who says that the ECFMG objectives is not a syllabus, but claims to prepare his students for the ECFMG exams. Is this fair?

    By the way, how is it that the three UWI schools that don’t claim to prepare students for the ECFMG, have pass rates for this exam comparable with ROSS & SGU, which does?

    HOW IS IT THAT ALL OTHER SCHOOLS ARE FAR FAR BEHIND in their pass rates for this exam.

    Lets talk about the owner and President of the school, who, after fleecing his students for four semesters and offering them poor training- including having 3 teachers replaced in one semester, just as you did at Xavier- and then saying “we will weed them out at Step 1 exam.”

    Lets talk about the owner and President of the school, who conducted operations in a building abandoned by the Government, because of asbestos?

    Lets talk about the owner of the schools that sent thugs deep into Mexico to harm ZTRUTH, after his masterful posts on their activities on both ValueMD and the now obsolete GUIDE TO OFFSHORE MEDICAL SCHOOLS. This owner also sent his thugs elsewhere after ZTRUTHS partner, but he was arrested.

    Come Pickney boy, you want to contradict GP?

    Lets talk about the fact that there are no external examiners at any of these schools to supervise exams as is the case at UWI.

    even high schools and distance courses in US have provosts.

No problem with high science but a Cuban delivery system would be much better for us.”

    True.

    Especially as the life expectancy of Cubans is better that the life expectancy of black Americans, and the Cubans have spent far far less to arrive at that.

    Sadly expensive industrialized medicine does not necessarily produce better outcomes.

  • FOOLBERT PICKNEY BOY LET ME PUT SOME MORE LICKS IN YOUR TAIL
    To that end let me introduce some verifiable facts to the discussion. As of 2016 the US is projecting a 250,000 physician shortage by 2025. As of 2013 29% of all physicians practicing in US hospitals are foreign trained physicians or what is generally identified as IMG/FMG.
    TELL US SAH, WHAT DOES THE ABOVE STATISTICS HAVE TO DO WITH BARBADOS, OR IMPROVING HEALTHCARE IN BARBADOS.

    The greater majority of US based offshore medical schools are delivering an identical US compliant Allopathic Curriculum, tailored to meet the educational parameters of the USMLE board examination; which is required to be sat by all medical graduates from any and all schools across the world prior to entering a US residency program.

    TELL US SAH, WHAT DOES THE ABOVE BULLSHIT HAVE TO DO WITH BARBADOS, OR IMPROVING HEALTHCARE IN BARBADOS.

    If one was to look at the history of the seven schools i have earlier mentioned here, they will find that all of them have graduated in excess of thousand physicians who are practicing, teaching, or doing valuable research.

    ALTHOUGH THIS MAYBE TRUE OF ROSS, SGU, AUC, MUA, SABA IT IS CERTAINLY NOT TRUE OF ANY OF THE SCHOOLS NOW OPERATING IN BARBADOS
    IT IS CERTAINLY NOT TRUE OF AUIS OR ITS PRECURSOR ST EUSTATIUS.
    YOU KNOW AS I DO THAT THE PERCENTAGE PASS RATE FOR OFFSHORE SCHOOLS OTHER THAN SGU, ROSS AND AUA IS LESS THAN 25 PERCENT

    The common net thread is that they are all making a needed positive contribution to health delivery resources available to the populations they serve.
    THIS IS WHAT WE IN BARBADOS CALL A NASTY STINKING LIE, AND A LARGE PATTY OF BOVINE EXCREMENT

    TELL US ISLAND BY ISLAND, AND SCHOOL BY SCHOOL HOW THIS IS SO. ITEMIZE THE “needed positive contribution to health delivery resources available to the populations they serve.”

    Now, allow me to address the specific situation in Barbados. The proliferation of schools slated for Barbados says more about Barbados than it does about Caribbean Medical schools. Barbados is an Island that for the past 20 plus years has made significant investment in education. It has one of the highest literacy rates of any developed nation. It has a large concentration of skilled retired physicians who have practice experience from around the US, Canada, UK, hell the world. If you were to be an educator in the offshore medical sector, where would you go to set up shop?

    THERE HAVE BEEN BOGUS OFFSHORE MEDICAL SCHOOLS ALLOVER THE CARRIBEAN SINCE 1978. HOW COME ALL OF A SUDDEN HAVE YOU FOLK IN THE BOGUS MED SCHOOL INDUSTRY COME TO THE CONCLUSION THAT If you were to be an educator in the offshore medical sector, where would you go to set up shop?
    BECAUSE FORMER GOVERNMENTS DID NOT ALLOW IT AND BECAUSE FUMBLE FOOLS ARE CASH STRAPPED.

    Now there is always an ignorant population frightened by that which they don’t know or don’t understand. It’s human nature.

    YOU CONTRADICT YOURSELF JACKASS. AFTER EXTOLLING THE GREATNESS OF BARBADOS’ EDUCATION IN ONE BREATH, HOW DO YOU WITH THE OTHER SIDE OF YOUR MOUTH CONCLUDE THAT YOU ARE DEALING WITH ‘‘an ignorant population frightened by that which they don’t know or don’t understand .’’

    The schools opening on the island will not adversely impact upon the local physician practices, Hospital services or clinical labor pool. The historical facts have proven to the contrary on every island that has invited schools to come.

    OUR EXPERIENCE WITH UWI AT QEH SINCE 1967 HAS TAUGHT US HOW A MEDICAL SCHOOL IMPACTS ‘’upon the local physician practices, Hospital services or clinical labor pool.’’ YOU HAVE NOTHING TO TEACH US.

    The fraudulent claim that Students in the local hospital cause disruption to local healthcare delivery.
    OUR EXPERIENCE WITH UWI AT QEH SINCE 1967 HAS TAUGHT US ALL ABOUT THIS

    Fact: for US based ECFMG compliant programs the students are required to complete all their clinical rotations in US or Canadian hospitals. Thus no impact to the local facility

    THIS IS A BIG STINKING LIE. WHILE THIS MAY BE TRUE FOR BOGUS OFFSHORE US TYPE MEDICAL SCHOOLS, FMG’S FROM PROPER SCHOOLS FAR AND WIDE…INCLUDING UWI are NOT required to complete all their clinical rotations in US or Canadian hospitals.
    WHAT IS INDEED TRUE IS THAT THE MAJORITY OF BOGUS OFFSHORE US TYPE MEDICAL SCHOOLS, ARE CURRNTLY SCRAMBLING TO GET ADQUATE NUMBRS OF HOSPITAL SPOTS FOR THE CLINICAL ROTATIONS FOR THEIR STUDENTS.

    The claim that “All these offshore schools come to the islands to take and give nothing in exchange.”
    TELL US ISLAND BY ISLAND, AND SCHOOL BY SCHOOL HOW THIS IS NOT SO. ITEMIZE WHAT EACH SCHOOL HAS GIVEN

    Fact: AUIS has offered the people of Barbados and the government access to its sister company resources to address clinical access deficiencies experienced by the other resident schools,
    TELL ME WHAT clinical access deficiencies CAN A POOR RAKEY BOGUS SCHOOL OFFER THE WELL ESTABLISHED UWI

    AUIS has already hired local employees and is committed to annual increases in domestic hiring,
    HOW MANY MAIDS AND CLERK TYPISTS AND SECURITY GUARDS DOES AN OFFSHORE BOGUS MED SCHOOL NEED TO HIRE MAN. YOU THINK ALL OF US ARE DONKEYS MAN.

    AUIS has offered the Department of Health and Education revenue producing and performance enhancing tech that will benefit Barbados in the collection and use of health population data and education performance standards.
    GIVE US RELEVANT DETAILS

    We could easily continue this thread beyond these paragraphs, but I suspect that any reader with an interest in the truth will see that all apples in the barrel are not the same and that a great deal of relevant data is missing from the dialog.

    YOU GOT THAT RIGHT.
    BOGUS OFFSHORE MEDICAL SCHOOLS HAVE MAINLY ROTTEN APPLES IN THEIR BARRELS
    PLEASE KINDLY SUPPLY THE ‘”relevant data missing from the dialog” AND LEAVE OUT THE BULLSHIT.

    AUIS welcomes any guest from the Barbados community that wishes to invest the time learn more about what having a US medical school like AUIS on your island really means to the island.

    CHARLATANS RIPPING OFF STUDENTS AND DESTROYING THEIR DREAMS

    They know weak leadership when they see it and are very adept at exploiting such weaknesses, why do you think exploiters flock to Barbados, they are aware of the weak leadership and the fallacy drilled into the population that they are somehow so special, that is why they are chosen for exploitation.

    …..though those exploiters manage to get in to the other islands, they are not that easy to exploit.

  • Pinckney’s right. St Georges, Ross, AUC, Saba, UMHS, and AUA are good Caribbean schools. But AUIS isn’t one of them. Pinckney’s school was hounded off Sint Maarten after a spat with the Minister of Education, and an ACCM accreditation that refused to accredit the school. He’s constantly in litigation with others, so beware. AUIS is very far from an adequate school.

  • Calm, Composed, Facts

    Georgie Porgie- Get off your high horse and stop spewing hate and false facts. An opportunity to improve the nation and you foolishly choose your own self-interests over that of your fellow citizens. How can this school get CAAM-HP legitimacy if they are not allowed the chance to establish themselves on the island? What proof do you have that this brings big pharma? Do you know what the integrative sciences even are? Can you guess the revenue this even brings? It is laughable to think these are big players. I doubt they do $ 5 mil USD a year in revenue! It is a small boutique school trying to establish itself with a black owner that hails from Grenada. Are you jealous? Are you not who you want to be in this world?

    Barbados simply has never had a school like AUIS. Do not compare UWI. Thats for CARICOM nationals and hence they go to QEH. AUB and WUB are INDIAN SCHOOLS. Have you been to the campuses? AUIS is USA and Canadian citizens!! Paying USD/CAD, bringing down tourist friends and family members.

    At the end of the day your comparisons are not apples to apples. Yes, Pinckney makes some bold claims but for you to dismiss out of hand what are quite obviously FACTS really makes you appear quite small and uninformed. I may even add- lacking in intellectual fortitude and mental discipline.
