U.S. Senator Dick Durbin from Illinois is introducing a bill called the Foreign Medical School Accountability Fairness Act that would hold the five Caribbean medical schools currently receiving federal funding to the same minimum standards as other schools. Durbin has stated that these schools have “inadequate accountability and oversight” by the Department of Education despite receiving more than $450 million in annual Title IV funding.
