AGUSM moves to mainland; new medical university starts in San Pedro

The American Global University School of Medicine (AGSUM) is no longer on Ambergris Caye after moving to a larger facility in Ladyville Village in the Belize District. The confirmation was made by the university President and Chief Executive Officer Dr. Malik Soudah. He explained that there are new and exciting plans for AGUSM and for that reason, the university needed a larger campus. Dr. Soudah also explained that with AGUSM moving to mainland Belize, a new medical university has been operating in San Pedro under the name of Washington University of Health and Science (WUHS). Both universities are operating under a consortium with two different accredited charters from the Government of Belize but under one company, namely American Academic Services.

And while AGSUM has moved to mainland Belize, Soudah explained that they are excited because a new university was established on Ambergris Caye in February of 2012 after they received their charter from the Ministry of Education (MoE). The San Pedro Sun contacted the MoE, and an official confirmed that while a charter had been approved for the new Washington University of Health and Science, (WUHS) on Ambergris Caye, they were unaware that AGUSM had ben moved to Ladyville. The CEOs secretary stated that the ministry should have been informed of the relocation.

WUHS-Students-San-Pedro-1Dr. Soudah explained that once the students successfully complete their pre-medical program, they will receive acceptance into the doctoral of medicine program, which runs for five semesters and is also held at the San Pedro Town Campus. Once those five semesters are successfully completed, they receive an Education Committee of Foreign Medical Graduate certification from the Foundation of Advancement of International Medical Education and Research and complete the US medical Licensing Examination. At that point the medical students will be ready to begin their six semesters of Clinical Science Clerkships within contracted teaching hospitals, mostly in the US. Once those requirements are met, graduates are then permitted to apply to Residency Programs within the US or any part of the world.

We have a friend who wants to send their son to this school from the mainland. Does anyone on the board know of anyone attending this medical school? I understand there are a few Kids from San Pedro that attend the Pre-med program here.
