Government of the Commonwealth of Dominica instrumental in ACSOM’s ECFMG recognition

ACSOM in Picard Portsmouth

The American Canadian School of Medicine (ACSOM) proudly announces its official recognition by the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG), a milestone made possible with the indispensable support of the Government of the Commonwealth of Dominica and the Office of the Prime Minister. This recognition permits ACSOM students to sit for the United States Medical Licensing Exams (USMLE) and engage in the National Residency Match Program (NRMP), key steps in their medical career paths.

This achievement not only highlights the commitment and hard work of the ACSOM community but also emphasizes the critical role played by the Government of the Commonwealth of Dominica, whose support was crucial in overcoming the challenges involved in meeting these international standards. ACSOM extends our deepest appreciation to the Dominican Government and the Prime Minister’s Office for their unwavering support, which has been pivotal in this significant achievement. Their backing reflects a shared dedication to enhancing medical education and healthcare standards globally.

ACSOM is committed to supporting our students in reaching their professional goals and to continuing our collaboration with the Dominican Government to further advance opportunities in medical education and healthcare.

    DNO: Do you ever vet comments from Lin Clown?
    seems you’re in support of the name calling and other derogatory expression from this individual.
    is your vetting process just for show or its genuine?
    Come on, those comments are viewed by hundred if not thousands, even if the comments are few.
    You guys need to be more professional, but, its Dominica we are referring too.
    Very disappointed with DNO.


    ADMIN: Posting your comment has little to do with being brave, we aim to publish or delete comments based on our comment policy.

    We have removed what we believe is the comment in question which was purely derogatory and off-topic.

      Quit the hypocrisy and belly-aching, Mahaut-Man. You sound too much like the typical UWPwee puppet. Always throwing dirt but cannot handle one slap. Lin Clown dishes out what he receives. Have you ever glanced at most of the posts from anti-Skerrit bloggers and their clones (including yours) here? Lol! Pick one handle and do a search of his/her posts then come back to speak of “derogatory,” blah, blah blah. Have a look!

    Ah yes, this is a government working for its people. Well done, Skerro and the team. Take a bow and then sit back to watch the haters of Dominica toofay.

    For the betterment of Dominica, I hope this premature pontification brings resolution.
    The government has never apologized to the people for the demise of ROSS, but this fly-by-night entity is touting its support with nauseating acronyms even as the SOS is never invited to their white-coat ceremonies.

    ACSOM it is still NOT listed on the RGMEC for the ECFMG:

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 9 Thumb down 8

      Rasta Pasta, why don’t you go and live in the bushes and disappear yourself? It would do you well. You are of no consequence to Dominica. Fly away mongoose. You are just a thorn in people’s backyard.
