Why Should I Choose a Caribbean Medical School?


Widen Your Perspective by Interacting with Diverse people

While you will inevitably spend a better part of your waking hours studying, or in the hospital or classroom, you can spare some time to delve in a wide array of local cultures prevalent across the Caribbean. Additionally, the campus groups at most medical schools in the Caribbean are quite involved in local global health outreach. Student groups can cultivate long-term relationships with the Rotary club, clinics, orphanages, and local churches. When you step out of your comfort zone to include people with diverse cultural and economic backgrounds that are poles apart from your own, you set out to become a better physician down the road. When students strive to elevate the level of care they provide to their patients by depicting empathy, it adds to their experience pool.

Offshore Clinical Rotations

One other great benefit of getting educated at a Caribbean medical university is that it offers Offshore Clinical Rotations to all students who are attending college within their respective institutions. They offer them a chance to travel abroad, so that they can gain more hands-on experience from hospitals across recognized countries, such as USA and Canada. Now, if you are a native, what more do you want other than traveling back to your hometown and getting the exact clinical rotation that a Harvard university graduate is getting from a local medical facility.

MCAT Scores Don’t Define your Future

Did you know that the acceptance rate in Caribbean medical universities is four times more than the acceptance rate in USA? The MCAT scores are a major gatekeeper of US medical admissions. Too many future physicians have witnessed the death of their career due to an over-reliance on the exam. Caribbean medical schools believe that a low MCAT score could be due to a plethora of circumstantial reasons and shouldn’t be a death sentence for a career in medicine. Even though medical schools in the Caribbean consider these exams as a valuable tool to gauge experience and past performance, they don’t snub off applicants just because of their MCAT scores.

Tuition Cost is Far Less Than USA

Most medical institutions around the world come with a hefty fee structure that becomes unaffordable for students. On the other hand, Caribbean schools of medicine pose an entirely different story. While most believe that federal loan is the best option for borrowers, it is not always a luxury for students who are seeking to support themselves. Therefore, Caribbean universities have established programs that offer medical courses that are easier on the pocket as compared to renowned universities from around the world.
