The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

The Gov­ern­ment of Canada has ap­proved the In­ter­na­tional Amer­i­can Uni­ver­sity Col­lege of Medicine (IAUCOM) and the col­lege has now been listed un­der the CanLearnTM Mas­ter Des­ig­nated List (MDL). This gives a huge op­por­tu­nity to Canadian stu­dents to avail of loans while en­rolling for their cour­ses at IAU. This will al­low stu­dents from Al­berta, New Brunswick, New­found­land and Labrador, North­west Ter­ri­to­ries, Nova Sco­tia, Nu­navut, On­tario, Prince Ed­ward Is­lands, Saskatchewan and Yukon to ap­ply for loans un­der the Canada Stu­dent Loan Pro­gram and to carry out their stud­ies at the col­lege. IAU is also in the process of ob­tain­ing ap­proval for the prov­inces of Bri­tish Columbia and Man­i­toba.

Stu­dents from Que­bec can make use of the Stu­dent Line of Credit Pro­gram that is pro­vided by var­i­ous Canadian Banks and fi­nan­cial in­sti­tu­tions if they are look­ing for­ward to join the med­i­cal cour­ses at IAU.

Also, IAU has now been ac­cepted by the On­tario Stu­dent As­sis­tance Pro­gram (OSAP) for the Canadian Stu­dent Loan Pro­gram which of­fers a num­ber of op­tions such as loans, grants, bur­saries, and any other form of fi­nan­cial help for stud­ies at IAUCOM. With this ap­proval, res­i­dents of On­tario have a wide range of fi­nan­cial aid op­tions which they can make use of while ap­ply­ing for their cour­ses at IAUCOM. Please visit www.osap.gov.on.ca for more in­for­ma­tion on OSAP.

Ad­di­tion­ally, IAU is more than pleased to an­nounce the launch of its new clin­i­cal cam­pus in the Greater Bal­ti­more, Mary­land re­gion. The health fa­cil­i­ties par­tic­i­pat­ing in this are: - North­west Hos­pi­tal which of­fers stu­dents core clerk­ships in Gen­eral Surgery and In­ter­nal Medicine. Stu­dents are also given the op­tion to choose medicine and surgery elec­tives; - Wil­loughby Beach Pe­di­atrics – This in­sti­tu­tion works in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Uni­ver­sity of Mary­land (School of Medicine) and pro­vides core clerk­ship in Pe­di­atrics and se­lected Pe­di­atrics elec­tives; - MedS­tar Union Me­mo­rial Hos­pi­tal - Core clerk­ship in the in-pa­tient por­tions of the Fam­ily Medicine.

In all, IAU is proud to of­fer fi­nan­cial aid op­tions to its Canadian stu­dents which are eas­ily avail­able in their prov­ince of res­i­dence now. It also en­cour­ages Canadian cit­i­zens and Per­ma­nent Res­i­dents (PR card hold­ers) to make use of the Canada Stu­dent Loan Pro­gram to pur­sue their ed­u­ca­tion at IAU Col­lege.
