The first five semesters of Saint James School of Medicine’s MD Program will help you build a strong foundation for your medical career.
Our Basic Sciences curriculum consists of lectures, research and lab-based teaching at our two Caribbean medical school campuses. All courses are designed in the USMLE format, and study is supplemented with hands-on clinical training at the local hospital whenever possible.
Small class sizes offer you one-on-one attention from our experienced, enthusiastic professors. Tutoring, mentoring and one-on-one guidance are all available. Our supportive student community offers plenty of opportunities for peer-led learning groups.
STUDYING IN THE CARIBBEAN
Saint James has a diverse student body, a multi-national faculty, and a close-knit multicultural environment. Community outreach events like our annual Health Fair offer our students the opportunity to experience what it is like to practice in the local community.
Studying medicine in a different culture offers you many benefits. It can challenge your assumptions, expose you to new ideas and expand your learning opportunities. Interacting with a wide range of people from the very beginning of your medical career can give you more confidence and empathy as a doctor, and make you a better communicator.
