Saint James School of Medicine’s faculty is made up of accomplished medical professionals dedicated to scientific instruction and academic excellence. All faculty members hold an M.D., a Ph.D., or both.

Many of our teachers are medical school professors from the US and Canada, who have moved to the Caribbean to enjoy the laid back island lifestyle and follow their vocation of teaching medical students to become the physicians of the future. Saint James School of Medicine faculty offer you tutoring, mentoring, one-on-one guidance, and research support.

“It’s definitely a very rigorous academic schedule, it keeps you on your toes…the subjects you are learning are very intense, and it’s quite challenging so it’s really good to have a good faculty behind you. ”

Joanne N., student, Saint James School of Medicine
