Med School partners with University of South Wales | THE DAILY HERALD

Saba University School of Medicine.SABA–Saba University School of Medicine announced a pathway partnership agreement with United Kingdom-based University of South Wales (USW) on Wednesday.

  The partnership will offer qualified graduates from USW’s Medical Sciences programme the opportunity to matriculate with advanced standing into year two at Saba and work towards a recognised qualification that permits them to become a doctor in the United States (US).

  Saba’s facilities will offer USW students the chance to achieve advanced medical and doctoral degrees, teaching the same system-based curriculum used in medical schools in the US and Canada. Graduates will be eligible for residency in the US.

  Saba is recognised by NVAO, the accrediting body for the Netherlands and Flanders, Belgium, and has received approvals and/or recognitions from the US states of New York, California and Florida.

  Commenting on the new partnership, Saba’s Associate Dean for Medical Education Dr. James Bruzik said, “Faculties at both universities have extensively reviewed each institution’s curriculum and found that USW’s curriculum supports advanced standing for graduates of the Medical Sciences degree entering Saba in year two.

  “The partnership allows for a shortened curriculum, with associated tuition cost savings, unrivalled access to highly skilled professors, an extensive mentorship programme, and focused attention throughout basic sciences and clinical rotations. We look forward to welcoming students from USW.”

  Dawn Story, head of USW’s School of Applied Sciences, said, “We attract students from more than 120 countries and view collaborations such as this with Saba as key to advancing the careers of our diverse student population. This unique partnership between two institutions, which already have strong track records of success, will enhance provision and offer another seamless pathway for students to become doctors.”
