Wow as always.
déja vu all over again
American International University and the Royal College made a previous appearance in 2002 in this short thread.
more of them
Phonenumber.com knows of an "American International University" which cohabits with Pacific States University in Los Angeles. Here's a link to the phonenumber.com info:
And here's an ad for AIU, naming "Ms. Mai" and "Dr. Curry" as AIU staff. ("mai" is Cantonese for "happiness" if I recall correctly.)
I think this is probably a different AIU from the Grosse Pointe instantiation.
Pacific States University is ACICS-accredited. (AIU is not.)
Here is an article about the LA AIU from 2003.
Re: more of them
The Los Angeles version of American International University appears on the BPPVE CA-approved list:
Here's Pacific States University's CA-approval listing:
They indeed list the exact same address and telephone number.
Notice that the LA AIU is only approved to offer a DBA. Apparently Pacific States had to drop their DBA when they were accredited by ACICS, but the same institution still seems to be offering it, just under a different name.
Frankly, I'm surprised and dissappointed that ACICS and the BPPVE are accepting this.
RCPS Deans have had problems
The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of the United States of America faculty page lists "Benjamin Alli, M.D., Ph.D., F.R.C.S." as "Dean of Medical Research, Royal College of Physicians & Surgeons."
Here's another place on the web where one can find Dr. Alli: In the Matter of the Complaint Against AMERICAN BOARD OF TROPICAL MEDICINE
The "Dean of Surgical Research, Royal College of Physicians & Surgeons" is Martin H. Savitz, M.D., Ph.D., F.R.C.S. He can also be found on the web here: Professional Misconduct and Physician Discipline
Perhaps these are not the most desirable physicians to run the whatever-the-heck-it-is establishment called the "Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of the United States of America."
I found this rather interesting posting written by -- Diane Marie Anger -- near the bottom of the page at:
Separate names with a comma.
