I think UQ got a few slaps on the wrist recently. By recently I mean over the last, I don't know. Maybe up to 10 years. TIme is flying down the drain and I can't keep track anymore...

First there was a fiasco of the VC giving his daughter a place in Medicine on grounds of equity 'leadership' because she was his daughter. This is a public place for private advantage. He was stood down or he resigned over it. But she was not required to give up the training place she stole. He was not required even to financially compensate the studnet whose place it was that she stole.

Second... There was some... Arrangement... Might have been with Florida... Anyway... The UQ kids were studying for their US lisencing. They were studying for the Step Exam. They were required to have Step One scores BEFORE stepping into the wards. They were arranging for clinical placements / internships in Florida.

And I think...

What that meant...

Was that it became a back door to the US. So the kids of the wealthy elite who didn't want to do the 4 years of undergrad in the US (and obtain teh scores for Med entry to the US from Calculus and 4 Chemistry Papers etc etc etc) were studying at UQ and doing clinical placements in Florida and getting into the US... Match. They were matching. ANd they didn't have the big loans their US counterparts were having.

I think Florida has withdrawn. Whatever partnership there was with whatever University or Hospital System (for the internships).

It was a bit of a scummy scam. I think.

But I still would suppose things to be more corrupt in Dunedin.
