    Situation of Netherland Antilles Schools in terms of Recognition

    In the near future the Netherland Antilles will dissolve and most of the countries will jon the Netherlands

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netherlands_Antilles

    Presently in the Netherlands Antilles there are 6 schools

    AUC
    Saba
    St. James
    St. Martinus
    University of Sint Eustatius
    Xavier-Bonaire

    This means that when the Netherland Antilles dissolves these schools IMED recognition will end and the schools must be recognized by the Dutch System If it isn't on this list NVAO - Nederlands-Vlaamse Accreditatieorganisatie they won't be recognized by IMED and resultingly you won't be able to sit for ECFMG,etc. All of the above schools, except AUC, have applied for a voluntary assessment of their schools to see if they meet the standards or not. The current assessment by the NVAO takes place in conformity with NVAO
    standards, but does not imply recognition by the Netherlands government
    - the outcome has no relevance under the Netherlands Act on Higher
    Education.
    Since the island of Bonaire (plus the islands of Saint Eustatius and
    Saba) opts for inclusion in the Kingdom of the Netherlands by the year
    2010, it will be incumbent on all HE institutions on these islands to
    submit requests for accreditation of their programs by the NVAO once
    these islands have become part of the kingdom.
    Upon the dissolution of the Netherlands Antilles such as we now know
    them (starting after 2008), all current recognitions will lapse and so
    will all current IMED listings. It's up to the new NA powers to be,
    whether and how they will continue the current recognitions. For the BES
    islands (Bonaire, Saint Eustace and Saba), the relevant authority will
    be the Netherlands ministry of Education. For Aruba, Curacao and Saint
    Maarten, the new authorities there will have to decide.

    If I was a student I think I'd be interested in what happens in these assessments and what the administrations expect to do when the transition happens.

    So...

    From the same source, I am inserting some interesting facts. It also looks, from reading further down, where it says future status that it is far more complicated than imagined. I assume your political connections in the Kingdon have already told you the exact date? Indefinite future date.....hmmmmm



    "The Netherlands Antilles was scheduled to be dissolved as a unified political entity on 15 December 2008, so that the five constituent islands would attain new constitutional statuses within the Kingdom of the Netherlands,[3] but this dissolution has been postponed to an indefinite future date.[4]"

    There you go. So the Med schools are just playing around and doing voluntary inspections just in case?

    I don't know, you may ask the owners of CMU about that.

    What does it mean by Voluntary Assessment?
    Does that mean the schools of those islands need to get a charter from the NL in order to be WHO/IMED listed?
    In the case of SABA and AUC those schools are considered top 4, wouldn't that ranking be affected detrimentally?

    This NVAO situation is very strange. No body seems to know exactly what is happening or what will happen. As for Saba, they are the only school I am aware of in the BES islands that has been positively assessed. But since the official date has passed, Saba would require a complete approval now, and is probably just waiting on the team from NVAO. As for AUC, they will have no interruption in the accreditation. I am fairly confident they will retain a charter from St Maarten and the island will defer to ACCM accreditation (I believe this has already happened). I am curious as to what the future holds for these other schools though that it seems have neither been assessed nor are scheduled to be assessed or were denied.

    St. Eust is preparing very nicely by getting independant authorities to grade the school. Once the real assessment of the school is done they should be in great shape.
