Program Description:

We are a U.S. based medical school that offers students the opportunity to prepare for the challenging study of medicine to practice in the United States, Canada, India and some islands of the Caribbean. With a brand new, state of the art facility to open this July (2013), pre-medical candidates have a chance to receive personalized instruction in the core sciences before moving on to the M.D. program. Our professors are ECFMG certified and adept at preparing students to take the USMLE. Our focus is on the student. Faculty & Administration are solely devoted to the advancement of medical education through intense study and clinical practice. Currently, we have a partnership with St. Elizabeth's Hospital for research and clinical shadowship. Students are exposed to patient care & management from the first week of instruction. We are the only medical school in the Caribbean with active research to be published in the U.K & U.S. Our students are exposed not only to the theory of medicine, but the clinical application. We are preparing for the next generation of Doctors for the anticipated shortage to befall the U.S. in the next 5 years. Clinical Rotations in the U.S., U.K, Canada, and India. All at GREEN BOOK APPROVED SITES! If you have always wanted to study medicine, but for some reason never completed the journey, we are your school.
