Caribbean is one of the best places to study medicine. With so many medical schools listed in the International Medical Education Directory (IMED), the Caribbean has increasingly become the preferred destination for students seeking alternatives to their domestic medical schools. The official languages of a majority of the region’s islands/countries are English, French, Spanish, Dutch, and Papiamento.
Aside from the tropical weather and sandy beaches, another commonality amongst medical schools located in the Caribbean is that most offer a curriculum based on that of U.S. medical schools with the goal of assisting students in passing the multiple components of the United States Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE), and similarly the Medical Council of Canada Qualifying Examination (MCCQE), on their way to becoming successful physicians.
The main reason that most students want to go for a Caribbean medical school is because they are usually less expensive and less competitive as compared to many US and Canadian medical schools. Caribbean medical schools are also good because these schools offer training in US hospitals during the third and fourth years.
