When you are planning to study medicine in the Caribbean, one of the main details you may want to know is whether your Caribbean medical education will qualify you for a U.S. residency program. That is a question every prospective Caribbean medical student should have.
You won’t be able to practice medicine in the United States without completing a residency program. Therefore, you must first ascertain whether residency is possible based on the school you have selected. The determining factor is whether the school you select is accredited by the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG). Only graduates of ECFMG accredited Caribbean medical schools may qualify for U.S. residency. Windsor University School of Medicine (WUSOM) is among the leaders of such schools.
