12. What do you like least about your school?
Overall Summary
  • There is NO equipment (CT, Ultrasound, etc), and there is 1 beef jerky looking cadaver per roughly 60 students. The cadavers are dried and some have mold.
  • Financial aid, but it gets better and better each semster from what other students tell me.
  • lack of organization- no syllabus, thus stating no understanding of what should usually be preread. DPS is a total waste of time how it is set up with the exception of utilizing students as dummies for each other. i feel it is a class just to make credit in lieu of an actual teaching environment which the lectures are not!
  • the administration
  • There is so much unethical behavior of staff and administration. They treat us like second class citizens, and any time a concern is raised, they respond by saying, "this isn't the US. If you don't like it go home!"
  • The faculty, the lack of the school to follow policies. The lies about how good the school is; to cover the truth! The student officers telling people not to tell the truth The "Special Grading" policies, cheating faculty.
  • The school claims to have affiliated hospitals in the US, and many students agree. But some have had hard time securing clerkships on US mainland.
  • Rumors, interpersonal drama (try to avoid), behavioral science (getting new prof).
  • "the school location"
  • Best school ever...
  • can't think of anything
  • Financial aid (not enough resources), Insufficient guideline towards 5th semester and clinical rotations
  • You name it and it probably goes in this box.
  • The fact that all they want from students at the time is their money. If you do not get approved for a loan from the company, the school kicks you out, no matter how great of a student you are.
  • they lie all the time about everything, also they change the policy for their best suit, not even thinking of student. because they love MONEY only.
  • not enough clinical spots
  • The administration and the clinical wait.

13. Please share any other thoughts you may have about your school.
Overall Summary
  • Your professors will pressure you into joining them for marathon drinking sessions. You will not be prepared to be anything in the future.
  • I feel this school has great potential if they began to get more organized there would be less frustration via students and less misunderstandings. I feel all the lecturers other than DPS are amazing. I never went to class and actually came out with having some form of grasp on the material because a lecturer.
  • dont have any more thoughts
  • The classes are great because I am interested in what I am learning. Everything else is horrible. To be successful here you have to learn to relax and have NO expectations of people.
  • I don’t appreciate the greed of the administration: One example: paying $400Ec/$120us to park in mud, when there’s no parking laws on the entire island. Many more examples!
  • I really like UHSA. But it is meant for the mature student; someone with experience in the medical field. Once in UHSA, you're "on your own."
  • Good school for Med, up and coming, think we are building a good program. Pre-meds, there are enough places in the states that have transferrable credits (even comm college). Please understand, not everyone makes it in MD school, and some ppl willingly drop out, don't disadvantage yourselves getting a nontransferrable (as far as I know) premed here if u are not sure about your desicion (eg. not just for mom and dad). College is a great experience and life is short, enjoy!
  • I think AUA is ONE of the best administred schools (including teaching) in the Caribbean and that helps most of the students. Every semester, there is meeting btw the students and the school vice presedent/owner ( the guy from Ross). Dr. S
  • This is a great school for me
  • great school, 15/1 student/cadaver ratio, small group anatomy lab teaching, TA study sessions, great learning environment, great teachers, new campus in progress, hard curriculum tha really prepares u well and i absolutely love this school and place.
  • Overall I like AUA.
  • AUA is a waste of time. The happiest day of my life was the day I boarded my plane and left that Island for good. EVERY department lack the knowledge to perform their JOB. For any student that thinking about attending this school, PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU DO YOUR RESEARCH, dont just depend on the information you find in this website. Get in contact with current students.
  • They need to learn to carter to the needs of students, not just toss decisions at them.
  • think of a school which the Chair Department is actually a NURSE no even a Dr. and he's teaching you the subject that you should know as a doctor. how funny is that loool.
  • In summary, Basic Science education is excellent but Clinical Science portion and the administration is well below satisfactory. If possible, make plans on transferring to other school after the Basic Science portion at AUA.
