American Global University operates in San Pedro

News Five has done a number of stories since 2009 questioning the legitimacy of the American Global University School of Medicine which is again in the news.  Today, we went back to the facility in Ladyville, but there was no sign that anybody was there, and no sign of any renovation being done to change the residence into a University. In fact, the only link to the university is this banner draped across the front of the house. That, and the fact that there is no sign that any student has ever visited that location, has fueled the belief that the medical facility is just a shell to perpetrate a scam. The University, we also note, has changed its address a number of times moving from Belmopan to San Pedro and now Ladyville. A fact sheet issued to our newsroom by the school states that all their students are currently in the U.S. completing their fifth semester of studies at a contracted hospital. The fact sheet also states that the facility in Ladyville, which is newly acquired, will undergo extensive renovation and open for an inaugural semester in September of 2013, but as we stated there is no sign of any renovation, massive or otherwise. News Five checked out the Washington University of Health and Science facility located on Sea Grape Drive in San Pedro Town, and confirmed that classes were in session at the building.

    Regarding this school’s validity or existence, I do hope that the news media covering this story has enough sense to interview some of the students and towns people in San Pedro.
    I am a new student here who transfered out of another carribean school which were oporating for over 12 years. I noticed the difference in this school’s integrity as soon as I entered though the doors. I summed it up that day by saying that I felt like a real medical student for the first time. My classes are very challenging, we are lectured and coached by real practicing physicians, and I am finally sure of a real future in medicine. Please check all of the facts, speak to us ; the students.
