Ripoff Report Verified™ .. part of Ripoff Report Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation & Customer Satisfaction Program.A program that benefits the consumer, assures them of complete satisfaction and confidence when doing business with a member business..
The information provided in this report below is based on comments made by Dr. Qazi & Dr. Sandeep during an onsite inspection held by a third-party verification company with no biases towards Windsor University School of Medicine.
Windsor University School of Medicine is a medical school on the island of San Kitts. Students have the option of completing their studies in the United States, San Kitts, or Jamaica. They do not offer online courses.
Leads for Windsor University School of Medicine are primarily obtained through their marketing team. This team targets college graduate in the United States and Canada. In order to be a part of the school future students must fill out an admissions form. Dr. Sandeep expressed the process once a student has been admitted to their school, "Once the admission happens, they go into the classes. Completing the basic sciences, then passing the US MLE examination, then doing the clinical rotations, then they graduate and get into residency. I primarily deal with clinical students in their 3rd and 4th years. People who are in the transition phases between basic science and clinical. Since we have established MBME conference in basic science and examination, they have to get a certain percentage on that before we let them take step one on that exam. At that point in time, people run into issues of not being able to meet the requirement, so they need more time. During that time, we guide them what they need to do so they can meet the basic percentage of 65% before we even let them sign up for step 1 exam."
CUSTOMER CARE & COMPLAINT RESOLUTION – WINDSOR UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF MEDICINE
During the on-site interview, Dr. Qazi and Dr. Sandeep were asked to describe a situation where a student was not satisfied with the level of service they received. Dr. Qazi expressed that their most common express for concern arises when students are dealing with issues outside of their realm of control. This extends to personal reasons, financial reasons, a death in the family, or personal health. Dr. Qazi expressed that when situations like this arise they take the students requests into consideration, " a student, for example, is asking for more than 6 months to write the USMLE exam. This student would normally speak with Dr. Sandeep...they would email him and ask for a letter explaining why they need the extension. That letter would give the reason as to why they need the extension...If need be Dr. Sandeep can ask for further information, if the student says they are sick, we would ask for the Doctors Note. Therefore, instead of 6 months, we can give them 9 months."
When asked to comment on complaints posted on Ripoff Report's website Dr. Qazi and Dr. Sandeep address each comment stated that they believe them to be false. Dr. Qazi offered the following certifications and accreditations: World Health Organization, Education Commission For Foreign Medical Graduates, Medical Council of Canada.
When asked what type of changes they have made to honor their commitment to making things right with the consumer per the request of Ripoff Report, Dr. Sandeep stated, "We have a new Academic Dean since Jan 2016. He has been very pivotal in organizing and creating different committees for the university. Making sure all the faculty need are met and student organizations are addressed properly. Under the new Dean, we are definitely moving in the right direction."
Windsor University School of Medicine is proud to be a part of Ripoff Reports Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction Program, "We went through all the articles on Ripoff Report, about 99% of it is just allegations. If a student has a legitimate complaint, our doors are always open. If a student has a complaint on the island, they email the student affairs and they deal with it right away. If a clinical student has an issue, they email Dr. Sandeep and he takes care of it. We do have a mechanism in place to take care of any complaints. We are always looking to improve."
WINDSOR UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF MEDICINE – STATEMENT FROM DR. GUPTA
" Our mission is to prepare highly dedicated, compassionate, and competent students to become effective, socially responsible, successful resident applicants in order to practice medicine in their country of origin.
Over the past years, our faculty has worked with various student committees to update and improve our instruction. A continuous focus on change can be linked to the trends in medicine such as new technology, new research and the changing health care needs of our society.
Students must be prepared to deal with all the competing forces of a rapidly changing health care system, and demonstrate the qualities of professionalism during medical school and throughout their careers. It must be clear that we are committed to the best outcome for the patient. Each student must be constantly on guard to protect, defend, and be an advocate for patients. To accomplish this you must be diligent in your studies to acquire and extend your medical knowledge.
Our best wishes, Dr. Brijinder K. Gupta

STATEMENT FROM WINDSOR UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF MEDICINE:
Windsor University School of Medicine’s policy has always been to be transparent with all the students at all times. Current students write their exams online and are given their marks immediately. In the past, however, the marks were given at the beginning of each semester, as students would fly out to their country of residence after their final exams. In order for each and every student to see their mark, they had to make sure that their financial accounts are up to date.
Windsor University will also reiterate that each and every student has/ had the right to check their exams and results. Any institution in the world would let you retake any failed exams at the fees associated with it.
Windsor University has never claimed to have acquired accreditation from CAAM – HP. We have applied in 2016 and waiting for a reply from CAAM-HP. Once we hear something, we will be publishing it on our website (http://www.caam-hp.org/assessedprogrammes.html)
NOW TO THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED
The final straw for me to leave the school was when I was told that I could not see my grades until after I paid for the next semester. The catch was, if I didn't pass both of my classes, I had to repeat the semester before. "Either way the tuition is the same." Yeah that's not the point... After 15 minutes of getting borderline hysterical, I find out my grades. All F's, go figure. How is this possible though, considering I had gotten an exact copy of the final that was worth 70% of my grade a week before finals (teachers are easily bribed at this school, I believe the school officials are actually the ones pocketing the money from the bribery, however). I aced that final because I, and a 1/4 of the class, had gotten it the week before. Some of us "passed" some of us "failed". They don't grade exams here, I'm not sure how exactly you pass at this school. It isn't by studying, showing up or cheating, it's pretty much just buying your way through 10 semesters. I was told I could "retake" the final for $1000 because they were going to make a special exception for me "just this once" lol. I couldn't see it though, as it had been "sent to the main office" in Monee Illinois conveniently. I could see it after the retake though, if I didn't pass the retake. I would have to pay an additional $50 for that. You get where I'm going with this?
I actually thought for a brief moment that they'd return my housing and book deposits after leaving. Yeah, Lol on that. I ended up having to get an attorney to get a transcript from them. Their main office in Monee claimed, "they had never had any contact with students and had no affiliation with Windsor other than consulting services." I just gave up. All F's, no money and 8 months of my life wasted.
Don't let these people exploit your dream of becoming a doctor! You can do it, just do it somewhere else!!
