Texas is currently considering a bill that seems targeted to the DeVry-owned for-profit American University of the Caribbean medical school. Essentially, the schools has requested a certificate of authority from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board to allow it to send a small number of residents back to Texas to complete their third and fourth year clerkships and clinical electives.
The bill, which is sponsored by both a Democrat and Republican, would not allow the Board to grant such authorization if “if the institution is chartered in a foreign country or has its principal office or primary educational program in a foreign country.”
Regardless of how you may feel about Caribbean medical schools, we feel it is an obligation to share news stories that may show bias to such institutions — particularly if you are considering going abroad for your medical school education.
Best of luck with your applications!
