Balancing Studies and Social Activities While Attending Caribbean Medical School

Your classes should always be your top priority when you are attending classes at medical school. You will need to work hard to achieve your Caribbean medical degree, and there may be days when you struggle to accomplish everything that must be done. The rewards will be plentiful once you do what you set out to achieve. As many of our former students can confirm, a degree from Windsor University School of Medicine (WUSOM) leads to several exciting career opportunities. 


Balancing Studies and Social Activities While Attending Caribbean Medical School 


Your classes should always be your top priority when you are attending classes at medical school. You will need to work hard to achieve your Caribbean medical degree, and there may be days when you struggle to accomplish everything that must be done. The rewards will be plentiful once you do what you set out to achieve. As many of our former students can confirm, a degree from Windsor University School of Medicine (WUSOM) leads to several exciting career opportunities. 


However, classes and clinical work are not the only factors you must take into consideration. Your time at school should comprise a healthy combination of studying and social activities. In order to remain mentally and physically fit, you must do more than study for your courses. We want to promote your well-being as you attend our prestigious school, and we offer an ample number of student services to assist you. 


How to Maintain an Ideal Balance
You might enjoy a broad variety of enriching experiences while you are studying in St. Kitts. You will find much to see and do here, and we hope you will take advantage of this opportunity. Here are some pointers on finding a balance between schoolwork and social life that works well for you:


• Explore the Environment – St. Kitts offers an impressive array of sightseeing and activities worth exploring. If you like to stay active, you might go on a zip line tour, ride an ATV, or go snorkeling and scuba diving. Getting plenty of physical exercise will help you to maintain the stamina required to excel in your courses. You may also wish to indulge in cultural enrichment by learning more about this unique place. You could visit local historical sites, such as the Berkeley Memorial, the Half Way Tree Cistern, and the Brimstone Hill Fortress.
• Student Organizations – Another way to achieve a well-rounded lifestyle in school is to join a student organization. WUSOM currently has eight student organizations, including the Student Government Association (SGA) and Students for Health (SFH). Find one that appeals to you and get involved. This kind of participation enables you to interact with fellow students in a positive, productive way.
• Connect with Others – While you are in medical school, remember to avoid isolating yourself as you are immersed in your studies. We want you to succeed and attain the highest marks possible, of course. However, you also have much to gain from connecting with other students. Make plans with others to have some fun after classes.
• Learn from Others – If you are interested in seeing how someone else made the most of his Caribbean medical school experience, check out Benji Ho’s blog, “Diary of a Caribbean Med Student.” Benji offers numerous inspiring posts detailing his time as a medical student in St. Maarten.
• Student Counseling – If you feel overwhelmed and unable to find a proper balance, use our school resources to move past this issue. This is not an unusual way to feel when you are attending a university, especially when you are in medical school. WUSOM provides students with a solid student counseling program to help you adjust to campus life. 


Getting the Most from Your Caribbean Medical Education
Whether you are from New York, Los Angeles, Vancouver, or Toronto, you probably chose a medical education for a variety of reasons. Remember that while your classes and clinical work are crucial aspects of your time at WUSOM, your social life and extracurricular activities are also important. We hope that every student attains an ideal balance between studying and being social.
