Barbados Medical Schools

Submitted by Dr. Georgie Porgie

BARBADOS OFFSHORE MEDICAL SCHOOLS, DO WE REALLY NEED THEM?

Elombe Mottley – The Next FIFTY YEARS of PRIDE and INDUSTRY! – may be a progressive thinker to many in Barbados, but in my mind he demonstrates his ignorance as a supreme illiterate in matters of medicine, and medical schools when he suggests that there should be medical schools here…there and everywhere in Barbados.

  1. During the years I hung around offshore Medical schools, there are at least two things that I learned.

    These schools find it difficult to bring in teachers from overseas because of the COST OF PAYING FOR WORK PERMITS FOR TEACHERS FROM OVERSEAS.

  2. Producing the most excellent website, whereupon thy can spew lie upon lie to lure unwary would be students and wannabe doctors to train at these schools.

I would enjoin commenters here to go to the websites of both AUB, and WUB and notice that not only are the websites very poor (suggesting that we are dealing with very poor con artists) but that there are no medical teachers at any of the schools who are Barbadians, and ask why? This at a time where several other offshore schools are now forced to employ locals to teach.

Why is it that WUB (see faculty and staff webpage) have few well qualified teachers listed on their site but yet they list 7 chefs and 7 security guards.

Who is collecting all the money for the WORK PERMITS for these staff members, I wonder?

I would invite you to go to this webpage on the valueMD site and follow the discussion on the thread

new medical school in Barbados in trouble already.

Notice that the valueMD moderator has tried to shut up the poster. Then try to use ctrl and C to try to download anything from this website and note that they have disabled ctrl and C

Then let us start a blog entitled BARBADOS AND OFFSHORE MEDICAL SCHOOLS DO W REALLY NEED THEM? Then let us try to understand and thrash out whether our Government has really sold out our medical education for thirty pieces of silver.

Please also read this thread on valueMD.

  • Thank you, Sir. The trip was memorable for other reasons. There were twelve of us in the party, 10 white males and females and myself and my wife. They all stayed at a total failure of a hotel on the West Coast. We stayed with relatives.
    I met the party at the airport on arrival and made arrangements to pick them up that evening. When I got to the hotel reception they could not locate them on the guests’ list. To cut a long story short. I asked to go in and look around and a slightly overweight man at reception told me I could not go in.
    When I asked why he said that the hotel was inclusive and that I might eat the food. I told him I was not that hungry.
    The following morning I went down again and asked again if I could go down to the beach to check, when this short Napolean-like security man called me to one side and told me no ‘coloured’ people were on the beach.
    Since I did not mention anything about colour to him, I thought it rather offensive. I was rather pleased when shortly after both that hotel, and its sister hotel in St Peter collapsed.
    Customer service, hotel management. They could not organise a pee up in a brewery.

  • 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!

    it is INDEED true that St Georges, Ross, AUC, Saba, AUA and others are fine institutions with successful graduates practicing throughout the US and Canada.

    BUT AUIS IS RELATIVELY NEW HAVING BOUGHT FROM A SCHOOL IN THE DUTCH ISLAND OF ST EUSTATIIUS THAT WAS HAVING TROUBLE WITH THE DUTCH GOVERNMENT.

    WE CERTAINLY OUGHT NOT TO LET IT….BUT WHO KNOWS WHAT A CASH STRAPPED FUMBLING GOVERNMENT WILL DO NEXT. OR ALLOW NEXT BEFORE MID 2018

    RE The fraudulent claim that Students in the local hospital cause disruption to local healthcare delivery.

    NO ONE MADE THIS CLAIM. HOWEVER, THERE IS NO ROOM FOR STUDENTS OF OFFSHORE BOGUS SCHOOLS AT THE QEH. WE ONLY HAVE ADEQUATE ROOM FOR OUR UWI STUDENTS.

    AS ONE TRAINED in the local hospital I KNOW THAT MEDICAL STUDENTS DO NOT cause disruption to local healthcare delivery.

    RE 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

    YOU ARE CLEARLY IGNORANT OF THE FACT THAT IUHS STUDENTS IN ST KITTS WERE TAUGHT IN THE LOCAL HOSPITAL THERE BY THREE UWI TRAINED CONSULTANTS DURING THEIR BASIC SCIENCE TRAINING.

    YOU ARE CLEARLY IGNORANT OF THE FACT THAT THIS OCCURRED ELSEWHERE…….BUT I WILL NOT LIGHTEN YOUR DARKNESS FURTHER.

    RE ~ The claim that the instructors are a collection of unqualified quacks.

    THIS CLAIM IS AS TRUE AS JOHN 3:16

    THE MOST AN OFFSHORE BOGUS MEDICAL SCHOOL CAN DO FOR BARBADOS….IS TO BRING A FEW LONG TERM TOURISTS, TO RENT ACCOMODATION, RENT CARS, AND BUY FOOD IN SUPERMARKETS.

    IN MY INVOLVEMENT WITH OFFSHORE BOGUS MEDICAL SCHOOL, THIS IS ALL THAT I HAVE EVER SEEN THEM DO.

    I HAVE NOT SEEN ONE OF THESE SCHOOLS DONE FOR ANY ISLAND WHAT THE UWI HAS ACCOMPLISHED IN BARBADOS SINCE 1967, WITH THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE EASTERN CARIBBEAN MEDICAL SCHEME

    MEDICAL CARE AND EDUCATION HAS EXISTED IN BARBADOS LONG LONG BEFORE AUIS, AND CONTINUES TO BE IN GOOD HANDS AT UWI
    BARBADOS DOES NOT NEED AUIS OR ITS “proprietary technology and trade methods to contribute to the economic recovery of the island Barbados.”

    MEDICAL CARE AND EDUCATION IN BARBADOS, DOES NOT NEED AUIS NOR DO WE NEED AUIS FOR OUR ECONOMIC RECOVERY…..WE JUST NEED TO VOTE OUT FUMBLE AND THE DEMS.

    AUIS DID NOT DEVELOP THE MEDICAL CARE AND EDUCATION THAT EXISTED IN BARBADOS BEFORE THE ADVENT OF BOGUS MEDICAL SCHOOLS OF ITS ILK. AND WE CAN CARRY ON WITH OUT AUIS OR THE OTHER OFFSHORE BOGUS CARRIBEAN MEDICAL SCHOOLS.

    Re Let the truth ring out load [loud]!

    When I spoke, I spoke LOUDLY , CLEARLY, ACCURATELY AND TRUTHFULLY, BECAUSE I HAVE BEEN ENGAGED IN THESE BOGUS OFFSHORE SCHOLS AND I HAVE SEEN HOW THEY OPERATE IN
    THEIR INTENT
    THEIR EXTENT
    and THEIR CONTENT

    I HAVE NOT MET ONE TEACHER, OR DEAN AT ANY OF THE OFFSHORE BOGUS CARRIBEAN MEDICAL SCHOOLS AT WHICH I TAUGHT, OF THE CLASS AND CALIBRE OF THE LATE PROF SIR KARL STUART STANDARD, PROF GEORGE NICHOLSON, PROF SIR HARRY ANAMUNTHODO, PROF SIR GEORGE ALLEYNE, AND I CAN GO ON.

  • 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!
    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?

    Like

  • Jack ass Pickney, and I am insulting jackasses here.

    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?
    Come. Let GP tell the world further secrets about the BEHIND THE SCENE ACTIVITIES OF BOGUS OFFSHORE MEDICAL SCHOOLS IN THE CARRIBEAN?.

    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.

    soon you may be just like this graduate of AUC, IN THE STORY BELOW WHO CANT PRACTICE, YOU WONT BE GIGGLING THEN

    Uncle Georgie Porgie STARTED PRACTYICING IN 1979!

    After earning an MD, she’s headed back to school — to become a nurse

    This is one in a series of occasional updates on the lives of people featured by STAT during our first year.

    They have MDs to their names, but they can’t treat patients. Now Dr. Heidi Schmidt — and others like her — are heading to nursing school to fulfill the dreams that were quashed when they failed to match with a residency program after medical school.

    Schmidt, who’s 47, is one of thousands who have graduated from medical school yet failed to match with a residency, the post-graduate training doctors need in order to practice medicine in the United States.

    STAT wrote about her in March, when more than29,000 applicants matched to a residency but 8,640 applicant failed to get an offer through the main matching process. This number includes hundreds of students in their final year at US medical schools, as well as foreign nationals and US citizens from international medical schools.

    Many failed applicants reapply after spending a year doing research or a fifth year in medical school. Others join the “Dropout Club,” a group for doctors and scientists who leave their intended professions for alternate paths.

    Though they have medical degrees, doctors who don’t do residencies can’t treat patients, or even work as nurses or medical assistants, without further training. Some in the medical profession say that’s a good thing, because there’s a reason — such as poor performance on board exams — that these new MDs didn’t make the cut. But others call it an outrage that doctors’ skills are going to waste amid a shortage of primary care physicians, just because there aren’t enough residency spots to go around.

    Schmidt, who graduated from American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine in 2010, had been hoping to take advantage of a 2014 Missouri law that will allow unmatched medical school graduates to work with a collaborating physician in medically underserved areas. But implementation has dragged: The Missouri Board of Registration for the Healing Arts doesn’t anticipate accepting applications until early 2017, according to a spokesman.

    Kansas and Arkansas have passed similar laws — over the objection of groups such as the Association of American Medical Colleges, which contends that it’s not safe to let doctors bypass the traditional residency, which lasts at least three years. Kansas, whose special permits are restricted to graduates of the University of Kansas School of Medicine, has not had any takers so far. Arkansas, which limits applicants to those with ties to the state, just issued its first two special permits in October.

    Schmidt isn’t waiting around. She is back studying chemistry 101 and human anatomy, as she begins a three-year journey to become a nurse practitioner. She has been accepted into a bachelor’s of nursing program in Indianapolis, where she lives, and plans to use loans and scholarships to pay the approximately $140,000 in total costs.

    Volunteering in a free medical clinic in Indianapolis has rekindled her passion to practice medicine, she said.
    But Schmidt said she’s frustrated that there isn’t a faster — and less costly — track from an MD to a master’s in nursing.
    “My schedule is insane,” she said. “I stay up half the night taking online classes.”

    Georgie my man, that must be a personal pdf? I get an error upon opening the link. No worries, we all understand why you utilize CAPS. Heads up, The CAPS + the “jackass” and “moron” language = pulls you into the pig pen.

    I found this interesting:

    You’ve given SGU their due, what do you think of this. From 1984.

    Particularly interesting:
    “Approval was granted over vociferous objections from the country’s doctors… and UWI.”

    SGU placed 900 students into US and Canadian Residency’s this year. How many did UWI place into the US or Canada? Surely with our number of Canadian citizens and residents, we’d be placing some in Canada from UWI? Where is this list, it’d be nice to see. Really, I’d love to know and see our intellectual contribution.

    What if SGU had made it in Barbados? How many millions of dollars and jobs would it be? How many Bajans educated for free or the cheap on subsidized american dollars?

    The point I make- in 1984 Barbados went into a flurry over this same thing- sounding ridiculous in hindsight: ” New Jersey gang money”, “corpses shipped improperly” “soviet spys”, UWI resistance.

    At the end of the day you’ve been out of the game and sound much like those in this article. There is a reckoning coming. If these places don’t get regional accreditation by 2021, they are done. Let the market decide the truth and see what happens. End of the day as you saw from my last post, this school is putting some students into good programs- use and canadian provincial/state schools.That means something. Not 900, but some. Tuition is comparable to UWI.

    Georgie Porgie is right. UWI does not exist to place its graduates in U.S. or Canadian universities, nor does it exist to traiin and export doctors to North America.

    UWI is funded by the taxpayers of the region, and exists to provide doctors for the taxpayers of the region, and for the taxpayers parents, grandchildren, children and grandchildren. So even while some UWO trained doctors may freely choose to migrate to North America, in pursuit of better pay, we who live in the Caribbean wish to retain some of our brightest and our best so that we have excellent access to excellent medical care.

    That is why we raise our children well, and that is why we pay for their education.

    So that they can serve us.

You truly posses the “crabs in a bucket” mentality so common in both those of your generation and island-folk. The big world moving a bit too fast for you? Ol` Trump, i guess I should pity you, eh?

    Hey- plebes. Who started the conversation about matching?????? Really? His name is Georgie the Geriatric:
    “HAS ANYONE MATCHED FROM AUB OR ANY OTHER OFFSHORE MEDICAL SCHOOL IN BARBADOS YET?

    We not talking about the UWI graduates,…….cause they match every year and have been doing so for years.”

    haha- funny thing is, looks like AUIS students did. Where is info that you claim on Matching for UWI?

    I had no desire to bring this topic up, you did. So guess what? I looked into it…. and you’re a LIAR. I can’t find info on UWI Matches in the US or Canada.. so unless you can provide it… you are a LIAR. It’s a vile thing to use your degree/experience to bloviate about bullshit. That’s what your substance at this stage amounts to…. bullshit. It’s honestly hard to find much recent success info at all. I’d bet your life has played out similarly.

    Again, I had no desire to talk Match. GEORGIE DID. Now Georgie can not back it up. I fully agree… it probably should not be a big goal for Bajans or UWI grads. Plenty of need in the carib considering the health of population. BUT. if you make a statement- back that shit up old man. HAHA, I guess the rigor of logic is too much for you at this stage?

    the question remains… DO YOU KNOW THE FACTS?

    The article from 1984 makes total sense- your dismissal of it amounts to a grade-school level remark- you actually have the mind of a child. The fact is…. BAJANS (that probably looked a lot like you, if it wasn’t you) said the same LIES about SGU in 1984. And guess what, they turned out to be LIES. You lie just like the government you despise. It’s a sick psychology. To be trapped yet desire to trap others just like you. Too bad Barbados missed out on all that cash from the white people.

    Simpleton- I hear you. I agree, as you can see above. But its too bad only those with the money and/or political connections are able to place their students into med school at UWI at the regional taxpayers dollar. Sick sick pigpen mentality. Funny how you’ve been lurking in the darkness, waiting to pounce. Too bad you did it with something that Georgie brought up and I really had no intention of bringing into the conversation. BUT, since you both have brought it in, AND failed to respond with anything resembling facts, it now stands as another L against your position. The lack of response to the hysteria evident in the 1984 article and also the GERIATRICS comments being quite hysterical can lead me to believe….

    Ain’t much changed on that there small piece of dirt in many a year!!! like WOW. This is amazing. You people have such a limited world view, but such an oversized sense of accomplishment. Sounds really American, actually. Very Trumpian.

  • I normally don’t participate in these blog discussions, but I have been reading the conversation here dating back to October of 2017 and I find it personally disturbing that it is so ugly and grossly inaccurate and deliberately destructive. The unnecessarily rude Dr. Georgie Porgie Elombe Mottley is particularly bothersome as he apparently claims to be a graduate of UWI some many years ago and further asserts that he has been an accomplished physician and educator over many of those years, at many of the Caribbean schools he so reviles. I think it odd that such an accomplished educator has such an obvious difficulty articulating his position without being so simplistic, rude and inaccurate. He comes across as a school yard bully who suffers from diminished self-esteem and issues of personal inadequacy. I fear he must be a terrible embarrassment for the people of Barbados and the school that he was so ineffectively educated at. He occasionally makes some reasonable points, but then invalidates his own position with his nasty bravado and rudeness.
    I can’t totally disagree with him when he speaks about the many educational, ethical and moral deficiencies found at some of the Caribbean schools, but personal accountability and integrity requires that when bringing light to these problems that we all must be careful to speak accurately and truthfully.
    I am the proud parent of two graduates from AUIS, students who were struggling academically at one of the big four Caribbean schools until they transferred to AUIS. With the support received from the AUIS program they both did very well on the USMLE’s scoring in the mid 230’s and 240”s, both matched on their first attempt and are now doing very well in prestigious US residency programs. In fact my son is under consideration for chief resident. Dr Georgie Porgie I share this only to illustrate that when you speak out about the schools on Barbados in the plural context that you must be careful to be accurate about what you are saying.
    I would also like to address your seemingly angry and unwarranted disrespect directed at Mr. Pinckney. I can tell that you have never met and clearly don’t know anything about this man. He came to St Eustatius in late 2013 after the former owners had moved the school from its namesake to St. Marten, where they ran it into the ground; threatening the careers and futures of some three hundred plus students. He negotiated with a crooked island government to protect the charter and the students ECFMG status. He negotiated with local landlords to assist students who had their security deposits stolen. This is the same man who placed an ad in the island newspaper and invited those local creditors hurt by the prior owners and offered to assist them in getting some recovery of their losses. Creditors to whom he had no legal obligation and then paid them out of his own pocket. This is a man with a fine outstanding and unquestionable character that is visibly backed up by clear sense of right and wrong, one who you sir would benefit substantially from emulating.
    You speak of his fleeing from one island to another as if to suggest some ugly or corrupt motivation. He saved my children’s careers and our family’s economic future; when he picked up the school and moved it away from the influence of a crooked St. Maarten education minister and the backdoor shenanigans of AUC. He personally paid to move every student, faculty and staff member with all of their personal effects, even pets, to ensure that they could have a safe stable and ethical environment to complete their educations and work.
    I’m at a loss to understand how you have the unmitigated nerve to disrespect such a person and address him as “foolbert” “jackass” and other such vulgarities. It’s a testament to his class and character that he hasn’t sued you or worse. Sir I only wish that before you leave this earth that you ascend to a level where you achieve ten percent of his character, class and compassion and positive contribution to people’s lives.
    I never thought I would have the opportunity in my life to meet a truly great and selfless person. I did so when I met him. He shook the hand of every student and parent in attendance when my children graduated. He is available to every student at the school and freely offers his personal cell phone to any that ask so that they may speak directly with him to solve any problems or concerns that are within his power to address. I suspect you believe that you bullied him into not responding to your baseless insults. I suspect that he was simply too far above your level to join you in the gutter.
    Dr. Motley, I’m sure Mr. Pinckney doesn’t need me to defend him to someone like you, but If you do a little research you will find that helping others is a lifelong practice of this man Pinckney who you so freely disrespect. In the 90’s he funded Black Physicians and built medical practices in underserved communities in New York. In 2005 he organized and personally ran America’s largest civilian funded airlift to aid victims of hurricane Katrina. He was one of the first privately funded first responders to assist in Haiti after the earthquake. I don’t know you sir, but I’ll bet your smart enough to realize that with this documented history he is not on Barbados just for money’s sake.

    It’s truly a shame. Barbados is a beautiful island that is rapidly deteriorating and becoming less attractive to tourist, I suspect that when people read blogs like this one that they assume that you are the norm that they can expect. I hope some read this and believe me when I say that you are a sad outlier that does not in any way represent the best that Barbados has to offer.
    I will close my contribution to the discussion with this message to Giggles. I’m not sure if you are a student, local or just someone interested in the Caribbean schools. I’ve read your writing’s as well and they have been informative and directed at facts and specifics. Your contribution is clearly driven by good intentions. The last few postings have been a bit terse. As a parent please allow me to suggest that you stay on your path, don’t allow this angry person to drag you down to his level. His colors will show through his words and the smart people of Barbados and elsewhere reading this will gain understanding and measure of who and what he is.

Why didn’t any one school see the value in you and keep you around. You said you were great with students…. I’m sure they vocally supported you? HAHAHAH

    De ole man has noticed something in the type of student (and for that matter citizen) that one encounters daily.

    You find that when you try to speak to them they simply DO NOT HAVE THE MOST RUDIMENTARY OF REASONING SKILLS SO conversing with them is pain and it is excruciatingly painful when you have to interact with them at tertiary level.

    You see your post at 2.30 p.m?

    Simple one liners that each encompass a tome of experiences

    Do you want to share how many times you encountered unqualified teachers who walk, and stalk, the halls of these places like demigods?

    Do you want to talk bout de racism? Oh how you gots to tell de racists to take dem ass from sitting on the lunchroom table in front of you where you eat your food?

    Do you want to mention the compensation inequalities for de white boys vis a vis de niggers at similar levels with equal and oft times superior qualifications?

    But to the substantive matter.

    The fact is that many of these schools are sophisticated gateways for specific countries to get into the United States.

    And while it can be argued that to build the mist renown cathedral or medical school has to start somewhere along the line of time, that does not mean that we accept the diploma mills and whore houses that accord wuk for wuk degrees

    There needs must be disciplinary boards and recourse for students and parents who subscribe to these schools

    Some years ago some MTW workers lost their job after FLEECING tax payers of their monies on a project in St John.

    They wondered how their scam had been uncovered and it was some years later that they learnt that it was the late Errol Barrow who on being apprised of the lackadaisical practices of this team, had borrowed a co workers car and had driven himself incognito to their worksite and seen the wastage

    At the first OFFSHORE school at which I taught I was suprised that there were one white boy lecturering among three or so black men.

    The white boy had been there a year before we the blacks came. Later I learned that he was never given a work permit, but used to be periodically (every 6 months) sent out of the country to Statia. Upon return he would get another six months from immigration. But you get semi-illiterate folk coming here talking about tenure. Tenure me am (as the Kittitians say.)

    This same white boy used to be spaced out most of the time on the tampi, and would walk into the lecture room, turn on the computer and projector and go online, and read something from there. When we blacks arrived, the students openly said “we now thing we will get through!”

    Soon after a new white student about 50 years cursed one of the black teachers, and overt racism was directed to us blacks. It was not long befure this 50 year old bred a young 20 year old.
    The sheenigans that was done to issue transcripts for the students was another story, as no individual subjects like Pathology, Physiology etc were ever taught at that school. The students studied from lists with topics, and we the staff got to gether each week to work out how to address the “case for the week.” I remember well now that the first case was ASTHMA, and the second CYSTIC FIBROSIS.

    THERE WERE SEVEN STUDENTS ON THE ISLAND WHEN I GOT THERE, BUT THERE WERE PERHAPS A HUNDRED OR MORE IN THE USA BEING FLEECED, AS THEY WERE TAUGHT THE 8 MODULES SIMULTANEOUSLY BY A SINGLE MAN.

    THIS SAME SCHOOL THEN STARTED A SCHOOL IN NEPAL WHERE THEY CARRIED ON IN THE SAME VEIN. THIS SCHOOL DID NOT LAST LONG.

    MUCH OF THESE THINGS WAS WELL DOCUMENTED ON THE WEBSITE “GUIDE TO FOREIGN MEDICAL SCHOOLS” (THE VIBRANT PRECURSOR TO VALUEMD) WHICH MYSTERIOUSLY DISSAPEARED FROM VUE ABOUT 2013.

    EVENTUALLY WHEN THE LAST OF THE BLACK MEN LEFT, THE SCHOOL, IUHS, WENT INTO TEMPORARY ABEYANCE. BEFORE THIS HAPPENED IT WAS LED FOR A SHORT TIME BY A MAN WHO DID NOT PASS HIS ECFMG EXAMS.

    AFTER HE WAS FIRED HE RENTED A HOUSE NEARBY AND STARTED ST THERESA MEDICAL SCHOOL WHICH WAS SOON EXPOSED, AND HAS BECOME DEFUNCT.

    ALL OF THIS CAN BE CORROBORATED BY READING THE DETAILS ON VALUEMD.

    AFTER A FEW YEARS, IUHS -INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY OF HEALTH SCIENCES- RETURNED AND CONTINUES AS AN INTERNET MEDICAL SCHOOL.

    NONE OF THE ABOVE CAN BE REFUTED

    WHY DID I GO THERE?

    1- I LONGED TO TEACH
    2 – THE PAY WAS VERY GOOD
    3 – I HAD NO INCOME TAX TO PAY

    MOST Bajans grew up as Anglicans- just as I did until I was aged 16.

    As a schoolboy at HC, I noticed that many of the teachers had degrees from the Unversity of Durham.

    Later I would learn that these men would attend Codrington College which facilitated their acquisition of external degrees from this English University. Of course, all this stopped with the advent of the Cave Hill Campus, and the UWI granting its own degrees circa 1962.

    Most of us knew that Codrington College was the place where persons converged from Barbados, Guyana, the Bahamas and the Leewards and Windwards inter alia to train for the Sacred Ministry of the church.

    However, I only learned in 1994 during a “Stop & Stare” walk in the National Trust Sunday Series that Christopher Codrington had sought back at the inception of the college to create a center for both Theological and Medical education. I am sure that most Anglicans do not know this.

    It is therefore most interesting that the latest parasitic Medical school to invade the shores of Barbados is purporting to operate from the grounds of Codrington College, and seeking to gain some prestige from the heritage of this ancient academic institution.

    Whereas I am happy to see that the discarded buildings of Society primary school has been refurbished for its activities, I wonder if the laity and clergy of the local Anglican church knows anything about the dalliances of the Government that has been recently forced out of office in approving this fiasco and deception.

    I HOPE THE ANGLICAN CHURCH IS BENEFIITING FROM THEIR PRESENCE
    THEY HAVE BEEN ADVERTISING ON VALUEMD SINCE NOVEMBER 2017

    Here is an article about dear ole” IUHS, which I started a few years ago for a book called OFFSHORE BOGUS MED SCHOOL CAPERS.

    IUHS 2002
    The first school at which I taught was IUHS in St Kitts. I applied by letter online, was interviewed per telephone by the VC in England and was offered US 45,000 per annum (about 12,000 EC dollars per month.)

    On reaching St Kitts I was surprised to find out that the school was a bungalow on the outskirts of town, that there were just four teachers and about 10-12 students in St Kitts. I would later learn that there were hundreds of students online with a single teacher.

    The course at IUHS was set up around 8 ten week blocks that covered 80 cases in medicine. Each week the staff on the island covered a case in such a way that at the end of the week the students ought to be able to manage the case. The disadvantage of this system is that there are far more than 80 cases in medicine, and that the students had to learn the rest of the information in the block by reading lists of topics.

    The good thing about the IUHS methodology was that the students spent 2 four hour sessions at the local hospital where they were taught by three UWI trained specialists in medicine, surgery and pediatrics. In addition every Friday afternoon the staff engaged the students in methodology of approaching the USMLE type question.

    I spent six months at IUHS before I was fired allegedly for telling the Registrar that I came to St Kitts to deal with doctors.I WOULD LATER LEARN THAT THIS HAD REALLY TO DO WITH WORK PERMIT ISSUES.

    I went on Network 54- Guide to foreign medical schools** (the precursor of value md) and started my “career” of telling the truth about the schools at which I have taught. In the process, online students wrote me and told me about all the defects of the online program, and one of the teachers who was there in my time but had suddenly disappeared wrote to tell me how that every six months or so he was sent off the island to a neighboring island and brought back in. This was to avoid paying for his work permit. He told me how the fake transcripts were set up to make it appear that the students were doing the course not as blocks or as topics on lists but as subjects such as Anatomy, Embryology etc. The truth is that they were never any such courses given at IUHS. Parts of these courses relevant to the topic of the week were taught, but the rest of these courses had to be read by the students by following their lists of readings. Unfortunately, however, my ex colleague didn’t stay in contact long,

    Perusing the thread VMD below will give an idea of the experience of one of the students who joined the school around this time.

    the truth about IUHS from student who was there.
    http://www.valuemd.com/international-university-health-sciences-iuhs/20512-truth-iuhs-student.html

    At that time I wrote all of the State Medical Boards to inquire if graduates of IUHS online school could be licensed in their states. I then posted the results on Network 54. This resulted in
    a dent in enrollment in online program in the US at that time. However, IUHS began its scamming in India and surrounding areas.
    I am sorry that the details of the facts revealed about IUHS by Georgie Porgie is no longer available. Two or three months ago Network 54- Guide to foreign medical schools suddenly disappeared from the web. Only God knows why.

    De ole man shall try to answer this question in parts because to answer in its complete format does a serious injustice to the many questions therein contained

    First off “…I wonder if the laity and clergy of the local Anglican church knows anything about …this fiasco?”

    Mine is the purposed scapula on your sentence

    The laity and clergy know about the organisation BECAUSE THEY GET A BENEFIT FROM HOSTING THE ENTITY ON ITS GROUNDS.

    As to whether they know about it being a fiasco you dun know thst the laity neither know nor care bout dat cause as long as de white massah paying some bills dem is quite happy and content to close dem eyes and let these mysteries coexist.

    I wonder if the laity and clergy of the local Anglican church knows anything about…former Minister WeJonesing’ association and sanction of the facility?

    Yes they do but de ole man going say dat while dem know about WeJonesing’ reputation dem certainly ent care bout nothing else

    In fact, as one of the contracts dat need to be examined dem should review this contract and it’s enablers both administrative and facilitators

    Now which brings de ole man to this final question which ensues from your question

    If the laity and clergy knew and were complicit in this crime did the laity and clergy sin?

    Why after all Dr. GP dese is men of the cloth who being imbued with some sort of spirits did in fact perpetrate these crimes

    But de ole man wants to know if clergy and laity can commit sin or effect crimes?

    The fact remains- you haven’t addressed any of the legit facts thrown your way.

Your attempts to dismiss my comments as trivial actually reflect your lack of knowledge and your bias on the topic. As I said, TRUMP, is that you? Trumpedy Trump.

    These are some facts:
    AUIS placed students into US and Canadian Residency’s- look into it
    AUIS is owned by a black gentleman whose father was from SC, USA and Mother, Rose Blaize, emigrated from Grenada- look into it
    AUIS has partnered with an HBCU to offer medical education scholarships to black students- look into it
    AUIS is not Indian owned- look into it
    AUIS employs Bajans- look into it
    AUIS offers tuition discounts to Bajans that apply- look into it
    AUIS does free community health stuff in Barbados- look into it
    AUIS wants to teach integrative med, herbs, nutrition, exercise, mental health as a core component- not just teach pharma-push
    AUIS wants to partner with the people or government of Barbados. Maybe even a group of Bajan MD’s if possible?- from Pinckney’s mouth

    That last one is common knowledge. Look at the stuff they put out. Pinckney isn’t doing this just for profit- that man wants something else. He is not busing them in from India as I am sure he can like all the others.

    https://www.avweb.com/news/features/190597-1.html

    What if AUIS was the same cost as UWI and was able to train students just as well? What if Bajans start matching at UBC or LSU or DUKE coming through AUIS? Is this not a reality worth aiming for?

    Again… same fears that struck in 1984 strike again, and another generation, through their own fear, cut off their arm to spite their hand. And future.

  • I HAVE LOOKED INTO YOUR SO CALLED “FACTS” AND THIS IS WHAT I KNOW

    AUIS placed students into US and Canadian Residency’s-

    SO WHAT? IS THAT NOT WHAT ALL BOGUS OFFSHORE SCHOOLS ARE DESIGNED AND HOPING TO DO? IS THIS NOT YOUR GOAL?

    AUIS is owned by a black gentleman whose father was from SC, USA and Mother, Rose Blaize, emigrated from Grenada-
    SO WHAT? UHSA WAS RAN BY A BLACK MAN FROM NIGERIA AND BURNETTS BY A BLACK MAN FROM HAITI

    AUIS has partnered with an HBCU to offer medical education scholarships to black students-
    WHO CARES? ITS ANOTHER BOGUS OFFSHORE SCHOOL

    AUIS is not Indian owned

    WHO CARES? SEVERAL OTHER BOGUS OFFSHORE SCHOOL ARE NOT INDIAN OWNED EITHER

    AUIS employs Bajans-

    YES TO DO MENIAL JOBS. ALL OTHER BOGUS OFFSHORE SCHOOLS EMPLOY LOCALS TO CLEAN THE PLACE. HOW IS AUIS ANY BETTER IN THIS REGARD

    AUIS offers tuition discounts to Bajans that apply

    WHY SHOULD ANY SANE BAJAN APPLY TO ATTEND A BOGUS OFFSHORE SCHOOL WHEN TUITION IS FREE OF COST AT THE SUPERIOR UWI—ESTABLISHED 70 YEARS AGO. look into it

    AUIS does free community health stuff in Barbados

    GOOD . YOU OUGHT TO SING FOR YOUR SUPPER, AND SEEK TO PROVE THAT YOU OUGHT TO BE GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE IN BIMSHIRE

    AUIS wants to teach integrative med, herbs, nutrition, exercise, mental health as a core component- not just teach pharma-push

    THIS IS PART OF THE CURRICULUM IN OTHER BOGUS OFFSHORE SCHOOLS- look into it

    AUIS wants to partner with the people or government of Barbados. Maybe even a group of Bajan MD’s if possible?- from Pinckney’s mouth

    YOU MEAN PICKNEY LOOKING FOR PARTNERS TO HELP HIM FLEECE UNWARY STUDENTS AS IS DONE IN MOST OF THE OTHER BOGUS OFFSHORE SCHOOLS.
    DID SOMEONE IN BARBADOS BESIDES JONES JOHN BOYVE AND MS MCCLAEN TELL PICKNEY THAT THEY LOOKING TO PARTNER HIM?

    WELL THE THREE OF THEM OUT OF WORK NOW. LET HIM APPROACH THESE THREE JOKERS NOW-

    That last one is common knowledge. Look at the stuff they put out. Pinckney isn’t doing this just for profit- that man wants something else.

    REALLY? REALLY? ARE YOU SAYING THAT PICKNEY NOT RUNNING HIS BOGUS OFFSHORE SCHOOL AS A NON PROPIT VENTURE? YOU ARE EITHER A NASTY STINKING LIAR…OR HE GOT YOU FOOLED REAL GOOD.-

    He is not busing them in from India
    THAT’S BECAUSE THE INDIANS NOT LISTENING TO ANY BLACK MAN

    as I am sure he can like all the others.
    NO HE CAN NOT—IF NOT HE WOULD. HE WOULD BE GLAD TO IF HE COULD.
    THE INDIANS NOT LISTENING TO ANY BLACK MAN

    What if AUIS was the same cost as UWI
    IT IS NOT
    and was able to train students just as well?
    IT CAN NOT

    What if Bajans start matching at UBC or LSU or DUKE coming through AUIS?
    WE DO NOT WANT TO DO THAT
    I
    s this not a reality worth aiming for?
    WHY SHOULD IT BE?.. WE ARE SATISFIED WITH OUR WELL RECOGNIZED MEDICAL SCHOOL

    Again… same fears that struck in 1984 strike again, and another generation, through their own fear, cut off their arm to spite their hand. And future.
    NO FEARS AT ALL

    THINGS THAT MATTER: SIR KEN STUART – AN ILLUSTRIOUS WEST INDIAN
    Sun, 11/26/2017 – 12:00am Barbados1
    BY:
    SIR HENRY FRASER
    Sir Kenneth Stuart, a founding father of the University of the West Indies’ distinguished Medical Faculty, passed away on November the 11th in London, at the noble age of 97. He played a major role in the achievement of that distinction by the university during his tenure there from 1952 to 1976, when he was appointed Medical Adviser to the Commonwealth Secretariat.
    When I flouted my headmaster’s advice in 1962 and chose the young University of the West Indies to study medicine, my father gave me the names of three Barbadians at the Mona Campus in Jamaica who he said I must “report to”. One of them was the then Dr. Ken Stuart, who had already made a name for himself in ten short years as a medical researcher. But even before I could seek him out in his office I met him across the tennis net in the Freshmen versus Faculty tennis match in the first week. We were beaten – he was good! And he advised me to work on my backhand …
    He was one of the world leaders in the field of hypertension, and although I didn’t anticipate it at the time, his inspiration in understanding and managing hypertension was to play a major part in my own medical specialty and career. And so it was a great privilege to present him for an Honorary DSC from our University in 1999. Here is a shortened version of my citation then:
    “Chancellor, I present Sir Kenneth Stuart, Doctor of Medicine, Doctor of Science (Honoris Causa) of Queen’s University, Belfast, Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh and of London, Fellow of the American College of Physicians, Fellow of the Faculty of Public Health Medicine, Fellow of the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Medicine … He SURELY is a jolly good Fellow! He receives fellowships the way other men get haircuts.
    Kenneth Lamonte Stuart was born on June 16th, many, many years ago, into a deeply religious home in Bank Hall. He learnt his three Rs at the famous Wesley Hall Boys’ School under the legendary Charles F. Broome, and proceeded to Harrison College. There he was part of that sixth form galaxy that included Sir Roy Marshall, Sir Carlisle Burton, Sir James Tudor and National Hero the Right Excellent Errol Walton Barrow. He played cricket and football, of course, but his great physique was acquired by swimming for miles off Brighton Beach, in the company of Sir Carlisle.
    He won the Barbados Scholarship of 1940 in classics, and after a BA at McGill in classics and philosophy, he went on to study medicine in Belfast, paving the way for other great classical scholars like Sir George Alleyne, Dr. Richie Haynes and Dr. Oscar Jordan to transmutate from arts to science. He graduated in 1948 and wasted no time gaining a diploma in Tropical Medicine and the Royal College Memberships. In “two twos” – four years to be exact – he was appointed Senior Registrar at the new University College Hospital of the West Indies in Jamaica, in 1952. A year later he became Lecturer in Medicine and was promoted at great speed, to become the first West Indian Professor of Medicine, in 1966.
    His career as researcher, teacher and international consultant can be divided, like Gaul, into three parts. The first is the glorious early period of UWI, the founding years, from 1952 to ‘66. He relished the challenge of blazing a trail and the wealth of research to be done. Like a medical King Midas, everything he touched turned to gold. First came the description, with Bras and Jelliffe, of Veno-occlusive Disease of the liver, or V.O.D., an aggressive liver disease killing Jamaican children. It was caused by a popular bush tea made from the herb crotalaria retusa – one of the many popular cure-alls of our grandmothers!
    This was followed by the discovery of a toxin, hypoglycine A, in the UNRIPE Jamaican ackee, cause of the feared vomiting sickness. Sir Ken tells how Lady Standard, then Sister Francis, arranged a special bedroom on the paediatric ward for him, so he could do emergency liver biopsies on these babies, at any hour of night. A Ministry of Health education unit was set up to educate the public about these two dreaded diseases, finally solved. There is no better demonstration in the world of the impact of research on public health, of the benefits of health education, and of partnership between medical researchers and Ministry of Health.
    The next ten years saw a steady flow of papers on malnutrition, rheumatic fever, cardiomyopathies and high blood pressure, and recognition on the world scene. He criss-crossed the globe with the medical jet set. I remember an issue of the medical student magazine, the Stethoscope, which reported under News: “Professor Ken Stuart visited the Department of Medicine this month”.
    The second part of his career combined that international reputation abroad with his role at Mona, as Dean and Head of the Department of Medicine. He promoted teaching in Barbados and Trinidad, and led the development of our own postgraduate programmes. Abroad, he was made a member of the WHO Expert Panel on Cardiovascular Disorders, Chairman of their Committee for Control of Hypertension, Honorary Lecturer at Harvard and Member of the Board of the London School of Hygiene.
    And so in 1976 it was a natural step to move fully on to the World Stage, and into the third phase of his career, first as Medical Adviser to the Commonwealth Secretariat and then Consultant Adviser to the Wellcome Trust, Chairman of the Court of Governors of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical medicine, and member of the Board of Governors of the IDRC, Chairman of the Caribbean Health Research Council, consultant to the World Bank, and prestigious Gresham Professor of Physic, to name just a few of his many important roles. He was knighted by Her Majesty the Queen in 1977 for services to medicine in the Caribbean and the Commonwealth.
    Sir Ken’s secret of success has been his canny ability to convert thought into action and action into words. Many an academic career has foundered at the mere thought of action, or at the effort of writing well. Many have the urge to write but lie down until the urge passes. Sir Ken has taken to heart the lines of both W.H.Auden and the Elizabethan poet Francis Bacon. Auden wrote:
    “Those who will not reason perish in the Act –
    Those who will not act perish for that reason.”
    Bacon wrote:
    “Reading maketh a full man, conference a ready man, and writing an exact man.”
    These are the marks of scholarship, which Sir Ken mastered in full measure, and the third phase of his work continues at the same pace as 20 years ago. He is re-writing the message of health promotion, which he takes to heart himself, and which gives him the gift of eternal youth. He has taken his messages to all corners of the globe – and although quintessentially Barbadian, he is now very much a citizen of planet Earth, crossing oceans more easily than most of us can find our way to Boscobel. Chancellor, I beg you to receive a distinguished doctor, a celebrated scholar, a renowned researcher, a Brighton boy, a Bajan Bard and Caribbean luminary, a light out of the West, and confer on Kenneth Lamonte Stuart the degree of Doctor of Science, honoris causa.”
    Sir Ken continued his many activities – academic, consulting and even tennis well into the last decade of his life. The passing of this illustrious Bajan, West Indian and Citizen of the World at the glorious age of 97 is testament to a life of extraordinary energy and passion – physical strength and activity combined with mental creativity of the highest order. The sympathy of his thousands of colleagues and former students goes out to his wife Lady Barbara and his three brilliant children – Andrea, Steven and Lynda.
    Andrea, a well-known writer and cultural historian (and author of Sugar in the Blood), shared with me a delightful story of Sir Ken: “Many years ago, he met a man whose last name was Flynn. My Dad immediately said “Ah I know that name.” The man sighed and said, ‘you probably have heard of my son Errol Flynn, the film actor.’ My Dad replied, “No. But I do know an illustrious biochemist of that name.” The man put his arm around him and said, “That is the first time anyone recognised my name rather than that of my son.” The pair remained friends for many years.”

    It is with sadness but a profound sense of both respect and responsibility that I pen this appreciation of one of the several senior medical academics and teachers who had a profound influence on the health of Caribbean people as well as on my own life and career.
    Sir Kenneth Stuart, MB, BCh, FRCP, FRCPE, FACP, DTM, a founding father of the University of the West Indies’ distinguished Medical Faculty, passed away on November 11 in London, at the noble age of 97. He played a major role in the achievement of that distinction by the university during his tenure there from 1952 until 1976 when he was appointed Medical Adviser to the Commonwealth Secretariat. His passing represents the end of an era.
    Kenneth Lamont Stuart was born on June 16, 1920, into a deeply religious home in Bank Hall. He learnt his three Rs at the famous Wesley Hall Boys’ School under the legendary Charles F. Broome, and proceeded to Harrison College. There he was part of that sixth form galaxy that included Sir Roy Marshall, Sir Carlisle Burton, Sir James Tudor and National Hero the Right Excellent Errol Walton Barrow.
    He played cricket and football, of course, but his great physique was acquired by swimming for miles off Brighton Beach, in the company of Sir Carlisle. And it has no doubt been the combination of great genes and an extremely active and healthy life style that enabled him to long outlive these other brilliant contemporaries.
    He won the Barbados Scholarship of 1940 in classics, and after a BA at McGill in classics and philosophy, he went on to study medicine in Belfast, Northern Ireland, paving the way for other great classical scholars like Sir George Alleyne (MBBS UWI), Dr Richie Haynes and Dr Oscar Jordan (both graduates of the University of Edinburgh) to transmutate from arts to science. He graduated in 1948, having been awarded the Coulter Scholarship for Clinical Medicine and Surgery and wasted no time gaining a Diploma in Tropical Medicine and the Royal College Memberships.
    After several attachments to hospitals in Britain, Sir Ken returned to the Caribbean in “two twos” – four years to be exact –as Senior Registrar at the newly opened University College Hospital of the West Indies in Jamaica, in 1952.
    A year later, he became Lecturer in Medicine and was promoted at great speed to Senior Lecturer in Medicine, 1958-1962; Reader in Medicine, 1962-1966; Professor of Medicine, 1966-1978; Dean, Medical Faculty, 1969-1971; and Head of the Department of Medicine, 1972-1976, becoming the first West Indian Professor of Medicine in 1966.
    His career as researcher, teacher and international consultant can be divided, like Gaul, into three parts. The first is the glorious early period of what began as the University College of the West Indies, established as a college of the University of London. These were the founding years, from 1948 when the first 33 medical students entered the Mona Campus in the serendipitously available Gibraltar Refugee Camp at the old Mona Sugar Estate near Kingston in 1948, and the opening of the University Hospital of the West Indies in 1952, until the beginning of the expansion plans for the medical faculty in 1966.
    Sir Ken relished the challenge of blazing a trail and the wealth of research to be done in a country with poor colonial health services, widespread poverty and a range of diseases that he would never have encountered during his training in Belfast or in his postgraduate years in Britain. Like a medical King Midas, everything he touched turned to gold. First came the description, with Bras and Jelliffe, of Veno-occlusive Disease of the liver, or V.O.D., an aggressive liver disease killing Jamaican children. It was caused by a popular bush tea made from the herb crotalaria retusa – one of the many popular cure-alls of our grandmothers, who had no idea how toxic it was.
    This was followed by the discovery of a toxin, hypoglycine A, in the unripe Jamaican ackee, cause of the feared vomiting sickness. The Jamaican ackee, which came originally from West Africa, is a staple in Jamaica, but no one knew that there was a toxin in the unripe ackee which broke down once the ackee was ripe and the outer shell opened up. Many children who were poorly nourished were very susceptible to this toxin and were admitted to hospital seriously ill – with very low blood sugar.
    After these problems were solved, a Ministry of Health education unit was set up to educate the public about these two dreaded diseases. There is no better demonstration in the world of the impact of research on public health, of the benefits of health education, and of successful partnership between medical researchers and Ministry of Health.
    The next ten years saw a steady flow of some fifty papers on malnutrition, rheumatic fever, cardiomyopathies and high blood pressure, with the development of a hypertension special clinic at the University hospital, and Sir Ken’s recognition on the world scene.
    The second part of Sir Ken’s career combined that international reputation abroad with his role at Mona, as Dean of the Medical Faculty and Head of the Department of Medicine. He promoted the development of medical teaching in Barbados and Trinidad, and he led the development of our own postgraduate programmes, in response to a group of us (calling ourselves the Action Group) who protested the continuing need for West Indians to emigrate to North America for specialty training.
    Abroad, he was made a member of the WHO Expert Panel on Cardiovascular Disorders, Consultant to the Pan American Health Organization, Chairman of their Committee for Control of Hypertension, Honorary Lecturer at Harvard and Member of the Board of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
    In 1976, he began the third phase of his career, first as Medical Adviser to the Commonwealth Secretariat and then Consultant Adviser to the Wellcome Trust, Chairman of the Court of Governors of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, member of the Board of Governors of the IDRC, member of the Council of Governors of Guys’, Kings and St. Thomas’s Hospitals Medical School, London; Honorary Lecturer in Medicine at the Royal Post-Graduate Medical School and Hospital in London, Honorary Medical and Scientific Adviser to the Barbados High Commission, Chairman of the Caribbean Health Research Council, Consultant to the World Bank, member of the Academic Board of St. George’s University and a member of the Board of Directors of the UK Trust for the Windward Islands Research and Education Foundation (WINDREF), among others.
    Sir Ken was knighted by Her Majesty the Queen in 1977 for services to medicine in the Caribbean and the Commonwealth and in 1986 he received an Honorary DSc from his alma mater, Queen’s University in Belfast. He never lost his love for his Barbados, and his roots. He invested in an alternate home here in Paynes Bay, and had a share in the Discovery Bay Hotel, while his interest in tourism was elegantly expressed by his mother, the owner and proprietress of the Blue Caribbean on the corner of St. Lawrence Gap.
    Sir Ken’s secret of success has been his canny ability to convert thought into action and action into words. Many an academic career has foundered at the mere thought of action, or at the effort of writing well. Many have the urge to write but lie down until the urge passes. Sir Ken has taken to heart the lines of both the English poet W.H.Auden and the Elizabethan poet Francis Bacon.

    “Those who will not reason perish in the Act –
    Those who will not act perish for that reason.”
    Bacon wrote:
    “Reading maketh a full man, conference a ready man, and writing an exact man.”
    These are the marks of scholarship, which Sir Ken mastered in full measure, and the third phase of his work continued at the same pace as during his main academic career. He re-wrote the fundamental messages of health promotion, which he took to heart himself, and which gave him the gift of eternal youth. He took his many messages to all corners of the globe – and although quintessentially Barbadian, he became very much a citizen of Planet Earth.
    He was one of the world leaders in the field of hypertension, and although I didn’t anticipate it at the time, his inspiration in understanding and managing hypertension was to play a major part in the development of my own medical specialty and career – because as a clinical pharmacologist, I recognised the huge problem of hypertension in the Caribbean and the challenges to control it, leading ultimately to the founding of the now renamed the George Alleyne Chronic Disease Research Centre.
    The passing of this illustrious Bajan, West Indian and Citizen of the World at the glorious age of 97 is testament to a life of extraordinary energy and passion – physical strength and activity combined with mental creativity of the highest order. The sympathy of his thousands of colleagues and former students goes out to his wife Barbara, Lady Stuart, and his three brilliant children – Andrea, Steven and Lynda.
    May he rest in peace!

    Your question should be: Are there any past IUHS students who are practicing?
    Lumc621

    I would say that you will be hard pressed to find anyone who has recently completed this program and is actively practicing in the United States. I challenge any one of them to come forward and describe their US residency and there US licensing process and the specialty which they’re practicing in.

    Med grad
    NJ has a rule to keep online schools out. It says you have to complete the basic sciences portion of the program in the location where the school is chartered. This excludes online schools or those that conduct classes in locations other than the country that issued the charter. These rules are becoming more frequent in many states. WA, AL, NJ, VA have all enacted similar rules. There may be more states but the ones I listed are the ones I know of for sure.

    There was a time when IUHS was conducting classes on the Island. This was before it went entirely online. There are IUHS grads who are licensed. But you have to be careful and must makes sure if they got licensed after completing the online program. The school claims there are licensed grads( that’s true) but it makes no mention of if they graduated from the early days of IUHS or they are grads from the purely online program. This makes a big difference.

    The new Caribbean accreditation agency won’t give accreditation to online schools. Hence the future of IUHS is somewhat up in the air. Unless they pull a rabbit out of their hat at the last minute or change their model of education to allow them to receive accreditation from the Caribbean accreditation agency, I don’t see this school as a viable option for anyone who is interested in actually practicing medicine.
    By the way I have nothing against IUHS because it gives student the opportunity to have basic sciences with better quality faculty who might be difficult to recruit to the islands on full time basis. I also have nothing against technology based teaching because basic sciences can be taught online and spending time in the anatomy lab dissecting cadavers is becoming a thing of the past in many N. American schools. But the medical establishment hasn’t caught up to the benefits of technology and finds online schools unacceptable. Until they do, these schools are not viable options.

    But the medical establishment hasn’t caught up to the benefits of technology and finds online schools unacceptable. Until they do, these schools are not viable options.
    It’s true the “medical establishment” is rather conservative no matter the country. But on the other hand, this thing (IUHS) has no credibility at all (they produced some doctors in the past but on their brick and mortar campus).

    Give a try by yourself: email the admission office…just to see if they will reply.

    At the end maybe the current owner of this thing, is a kid living with his mother, collecting money from a few people and giving them access to some videos he/they call “courses”. It’s just an hypothesis….but probably impossible to refute with proofs.

    Anyway, the fact that this school is not approved by the CAAM-HP should close the discussion. It’s a dead end, probably even for someone who would like to practice in a 3rd world country.

    That being said, do I believe in online education for the basic sciences years?
    Yes.
    But not for everyone.
    Not by any med school.
    And probably with a different “format”. For instance, online students could be required to make some arrangements with their local university to at least participate to an anatomy class with cadaver dissection, etc.
    Also, if they do their clinicals in the US, pass successfully their UMLEs….it means they have the same level of knowledge and skills as any US MD, right? Otherwise it’s a disavowal of the entire system (clinicals + USMLE).

    • In 1995, DeVry was suspended from Ontario’s student loan program OSAP after a large number of its students misreported their income. DeVry was reinstated after paying fines of approximately $1.7 million and putting up a bond of an estimated $2 million.
    • In 2001, DeVry became the first for-profit school to obtain permission from the Alberta government to grant degrees, on recommendation by the Private Colleges Accreditation Board. This decision was opposed by the Alberta New Democratic Party (sitting in opposition), the Canadian Federation of Students, and the Canadian Association of University Teachers.

    • In April 2013, the attorneys general of Illinois and Massachusetts issued subpoenas to DeVry to investigate for violations of federal law and filing false information about loans, grants, and guarantees.
    • In July 2014, DeVry stated that the New York state attorney general’s office was investigating if the company’s marketing violated laws against false advertising.

    There are high hopes for health tourism as a growth area in Barbados.
    This was the word coming from veteran businesswoman Mrs Asha Ram Mirchandani, owner of Case Grande Airport Hotel & Resort.
    She was speaking to the Barbados Advocate at the anniversary celebration of the Washington University of Barbados School of Medicine at the International Hall at that location, where she indicated this medical school shows the potential of health tourism in Barbados and creating new ways to earn foreign exchange.
    Mirchandani highlighted, “The past Government of Barbados has to be congratulated for the foresight they had of earning foreign exchange for this country, giving medical schools the opportunity to be established here as part of International Business. The Washington University is one of them, which is housed in the B Block of Case Grande, and they hope to bring in another 500 students. It has been a lot of hard work and we want to continue to push.”
    She continued: “The present Government also has to be congratulated for the Prime Minister’s foresight for carrying on the work of medical schools that have been established and we appreciate the people of Barbados for understanding business has to change and that we have to find new ways to bring foreign exchange. Also, the Ross School is coming to Barbados in January, [that] will also benefit Barbadians because 1 400 students are coming into Barbados.”

    October 6, 2018

    It was in the waning months of the Freundel Stuart administration, three months before a general election, that Minister of Education Ronald Jones boasted that the island was making great strides as a hub for medical education. Among the earliest and brightest jewels of the adminstration’s thrust was the Washington University of Barbados, housed at the repurposed Casa Grande Hotel, owned by entrepreneur Ram Mirchandani.

    But the gem became a tarnished dud on Friday as police escorted Washington University’s chief executive officer, Gopi Venkat Rao, off the Oldbury, St Philip campus, a wanted swindler.

    Gopi Venkat Rao

    The head of the medical school turned out to be an alleged wanted fugitive in India, sought for bilking thousands of dollars from hundreds of students with promises of admissions into foreign medical universities.

    Approximately, 200 students, mostly drawn from India, were gathered this afternoon for nearly three hours as a high-level Government team broke the news.

    Led by Minister of People Empowerment and Elder Affairs Cynthia Forde, the team included Parliamentary Secretary for the Ministry of People Empowerment Neil Rowe, and officials from the ministries of labour, health, and education, and the Welfare Department.

    The students and faculty employees were only made aware of Venkat’s deceit on Sunday, September 30 after media outlets India Times News Network and The Hindu newspaper reported the day before that over 200 students were duped by an educational consultancy firm of which Venkat is the owner.

    Six of Venkat’s staff members were arrested in India, and police launched a hunt for the director, his wife Nikita Venkat and an associate identified as Zameer, The Hindu reported.

    The fraudsters convinced clients that they had secured tie-ups with medical institutions in several countries. They allegedly promised them seats in medical colleges in the U.S. and China. Police also identified four similar cases where Venkat duped several students and then shut shop to restart in a different province, according to the respected newspaper based in Chennai.

    Prior to his arrest, Venkat was unreachable by staff and students. His executive secretary, Tricia Newton, disclosed that the staff have not been paid and persons felt like they had been “defrauded”. The staff of approximately 40 people had not been paid for more than three months and on-campus staff and students had no access to food.

    “It is a dire situation, I watch people at work every day crying [and] begging,” Newton revealed. She also divulged that Indian staff were routinely replaced after their work permits expired.

    “It is basically a cycle where [management] pay for their [workers’] ticket, gave them work permits; their work permits expire; they did not renew them; they did not pay the persons for months. People were just around here begging; [management] would get rid of those and bring in another set,” Newton said.

    Students gathered at the Casa Grande campus were confused, frustrated and concerned about what the day’s events meant for their future. They did not have access to food, electricity and water utilities had been cut off after the administration failed to pay the bill for five months and the university had yet to be accredited so they were unable to complete their degree or clinical experience elsewhere.

    Some wanted to know if the university will remain in operation and whether the thousands spent and all their hard-work were for naught; others expressed the desire to return home.

    Sowjanya Racharla, 23, pleaded for someone to send her home after she spent the last year being led by false promises. Racharla revealed that her family sold their property and took out a loan to finance her dream to become a doctor. As the oldest of her parent’s two children, success was always her hindsight but Racharla felt broken and betrayed.

    “ I came against my dad; my dad said, ‘Baby you already have a degree why do you want to go back there?’ and I said, ‘Dad I want to become a doctor and this university is saying they can send me to the United States where I can get placed better than India’,” Racharla explained, saying that she had cried until she could not cry no more.

    “I was the hope for my parents and he [Gopi Venkat Rao] was my hope and now he is gone,” she added.

    Despite suggestions from Ministry officials that students could transfer to other universities on the island

    It is known that the former Minister of Education holds a high-level and top paying job at another medical university located on the Harbour Road. Investigators must dig deep into the relationship between Jones, the DLP and these medical schools leading up to the general elections.

    Reliable sources revealed that those medical schools were major contributors to the DLP election campaign as reward for allowing them to operate in Barbados.

    Is Jones going to be investigated for providing safe harbor for a fraudster? Can he set foot in the United States again? Are principals of this medical school connected in any way with the one at the bottom of BET hill? What about the shady one at Welches, St Thomas? People want to know.

The workers are Indian, and so are the students. Tell me again how this venture helped the ordinary bajan. I’ll wait…
