With three enrollment intakes each year, and an intensive four semester basic science component Saint James School of Medicine allows you to accelerate your dreams of becoming a physician.

The Medical Degree (MD) program at Saint James is a 10-semester program. The scope of study consists of the Basic Sciences and the Clinical Sciences. The curriculum at Saint James prepares students for the United States Medical Licensure Examination (USMLE).

The Basic Sciences are completed over four semesters (16 months) on one of our two Caribbean schools, in Anguilla or Bonaire.  For more information on our Basic Science curriculum click here.

The Clinical Sciences are completed over a six semester (96 weeks) clinical rotation program at affiliated hospitals and clinical facilities in the United States. For more information on our Clinical Science curriculum click here.

However taking the fast track to becoming qualified as a doctor, does not also mean you are taking the easy route to success. One of our graduates, Dr Devang Gujarathi,  told us that prospective students often write to him  to find out about Saint James, and the one piece of advice he stresses most is that they should avoid falling into the slacker mentality rather unfortunately associated with being a Caribbean medical student!

Dr Gujarathi says, “In the end each student’s success is entirely dependent on their individual mindset.  In short, if you are willing to put time and effort into your studies, you will succeed.”

“Taking the time and making the extra effort to excel during your basic sciences course work will serve you well in preparation for the USMLE step 1. The faculty will support you any way they can, but it is up to you to take advantage of the available resources and time. Unlike most US schools, you will not be spoon-fed your education. Taking an active role in your education early in medical school will pay handsome dividends and lay the foundation for your success throughout your medical career.”

Another Saint James Graduate, Dr. Nisha Patel notes the School’s willingness and ability to accommodate students’ requests to fast track their medical studies by working in a very intensive fashion. She says “I did my cores at Chicago hospitals and rotated with U.S. med school students.  I learned a lot.  Saint James was able to honor my requests to not take time off and finish my schooling within 3 and a half years.”
