Caribbean Medical Schools vs. Foreign Medical Schools

Attending medical is the dream of many high school graduates in the United States. Due to the lack of seat availability in United States students are faced to choose attending an international medical university. Attending medical school in the Caribbean has more benefits than losses. Students are learning under a curriculum that mirrors the United States schools. They complete the same courses on a beautiful island for a lower price. The price of completing medical school is substantially lower than any other country in the world. Students also get the opportunity to learn this material in English. 

Studying at foreign, non-Caribbean medical schools, usually the courses are taught in a different language, making it harder for U.S. born students. Students are also not required to complete the MCAT but they are still eligible to practice in the United States. Caribbean medical schools provide their students with the opportunity to complete clinical rotations in green book approved hospitals in the United States. Students are getting the same hands on experience as U.S. medical students. 

This is a huge advantage for students when it comes to preparing themselves to obtain residency or even finding a job. These students also have the opportunity to obtain residencies in the United States. Students that graduate from a Caribbean medical school will be able to practice in the United States, Canada and all over the world. In other foreign counties, graduates are usually limited to where they can practice or obtain residency.

They have few limitations with tons of great opportunities to become successful. The Caribbean is so close to the United States, most of the costumes and traditions are carried to these beautiful islands. Students are close to home and feel as if they are still in the United States. Caribbean medical schools are ultimately the best decision when it comes to deciding to attend a medical school outside of the United States and Canada.
