How Much Does it Cost to Study in the Caribbean vs Canada or the U.S.?

If you dream of earning a medical degree, you have probably contemplated the cost of such a degree on more than one occasion. The price tag associated with medical school can be steep, particularly if you attend some of the schools in the U.S. and Canada. In fact, you might even have thought of abandoning your dream because the expenses are so high.

Fortunately, Windsor University School of Medicine (WUSOM) provides a cost effective alternative to the high-priced medical schools you might already have explored. WUSOM’s fees are very reasonable, but you will not compromise your education for the lower costs. We are an accredited and an affordable Caribbean medical school, making us the obvious choice for applicants throughout the Nation, from Ottawa to Dallas to San Francisco.

Medical Schools: Comparing the Costs


If you seek evidence that WUSOM is the more affordable option, you need only do a little research. Our Caribbean medical school is clearly the best choice for students who desire a world-class medical education that they can afford. Here is a basic breakdown of fees across the board:

Tuition
The tuition at some Canadian and U.S. medical schools could put you in debt for decades. This is not so when you are a student at WUSOM. The tuition fees per semester at WUSOM are currently as follows: $3,990 for the pre medical program; $4,990 for the basic sciences program MD 1-4, and $6,490 for MD 5; and $6,490 for the clinical sciences program MD 6-10. Compare those fees to the average cost for the first year of medical school in Canada ($12,959) or the U.S. (an average of $28,719 per year as of a few years ago), and of course, the fees go up after the first year.

Textbooks
At WUSOM, textbooks may be rented at the school library. You can pay a refundable deposit of $100 for the pre-med program and $300 for the basic sciences program. Compare that to the ever-rising cost of college textbooks in the U.S. (an 812 percent increase from 1978 to 2014). As of 2016, college students surveyed in the U.S. and Canada reported paying an average of $602 yearly for rented and purchased materials. 


Other
Fees – Medical school fees do not stop after tuition and textbooks, of course. You will also be responsible for such costs as lab fees and exam fees. At WUSOM, your semester ending exam fees will range from $100 to $400 depending on the program. The clinical skills exam fees for a well-known U.S. medical school, Tulane University, ranged from $500 to $1,885 for the 2017-2018 semesters. One exam fee for the University of British Columbia Medical Program was $700. Lab fees are another expected cost for medical school students. The lab fee for the basic sciences program at WUSOM is $250. Lab fees for the University of Nebraska College of Medicine, for example, begin at $911. The lab costs at the University of British Columbia Medical Program run a total of $765.
