The shortage of doctors in the United States and Canada hints at a dire forecast that many experts have cited could reach its’ apex sooner than we think—2025 is merely a few years away, and finding a specialist could be a difficult process.
A recent report from The Association of American Medical Colleges, projects a shortfall of between 42,600 and 121,300 physicians by 2030.
To begin filling this looming gap, we need to begin now; becoming a physician requires years of intensive training. SJSM is prepared. More affordable than most Caribbean medical schools, SJSM makes a medical education more financially viable for prospective students. And in addition to our hands-on, quality program, we also offer an accelerated study option to bring more doctors into practice faster.
As of June of 2018, SJSM graduates have matched into residency positions U.S. and Canada. One of them is Nirav N., who will enter an internal medicine residency at the University of Arkansas’ UAMS Medical Center this fall. Nirav began his medical studies in 2012, and he credits SJSM’s rigorous, high-quality MD program for his match success.

Matching for a residency is the final step to becoming a physician. Admissions officers are looking for those with the test scores, skills and drive to succeed. And at SJSM there’s definitely no shortage of that.
