The lure of the beauty of the Caribbean isn't just for those seeking fun and relaxation. It is also for students wishing to study there as well. Higherway educational Consultant focuses on medical students recruitment into Caribbean schools. With over 60 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 25 most popular Caribbean medical schools are located on islands varying in size, demography, and environment. Official languages of a majority of the region’s islands/countries are English, French, Spanish, Dutch, and Papiamento.
As if the perpetually sunny forecast isn't enticing enough, doctors-to-be (and nurses, too) who choose the Caribbean for medical school often enjoy the benefits of personalized attention and a small student body typically lacking in most other places. Caribbean medical schools also provide students with specialties and training opportunities that are difficult to find elsewhere.
From specializing in tropical medicine to fulfilling residency requirements in small family or community-based practices, students who graduate from Caribbean medical schools will possess extensive hands-on clinical experience in settings that will give them insight into the ways in which society and medicine intersect.
There are still more benefits to studying medicine in the Caribbean. There’s a benefit that’s often overlooked: that’s diverse student bodies. Universities in the Caribbean attract students from around the world.
While this is also true of continental universities, foreign students in large schools often get absorbed into their own unique cultural groups. In the Caribbean, the small admission ratio serves to keep students intermingling regardless of their background. Other advantages of studying in the Caribbean include:
1. Less tuition fee: Caribbean medical schools cost less than US medical schools both public and private but at the same time offer high quality education since they have the privilege of having global medical faculties.
2. American curriculum: Caribbean medical schools follow the American curriculum of education.
3. Short duration of program: Unlike medical degree that is 6 years elsewhere like in the US and in European countries, it is a 4 years program in most Caribbean islands’ medical schools.
4. Advanced training methodology: Studying in a medical school that imparts training through the latest and the most advanced equipment in healthcare not only expedites the learning process for the student but also gives him/her the edge over their counterparts. It also helps the students in their residency applications as well as when they are seeking employment opportunities in the US and Western European countries.
5. US based Clinical Rotation Opportunities: There are clinical rotation opportunities in the U.S and Canada. In many of the Caribbean schools, the first two years of basic science is done on their campuses overseas, while clinical rotations are done in U.S. hospitals. Though your home school is still overseas, you have the advantage of the same clinical exposure and opportunities as the hospitals' home medical students. Many past students cite this as an advantage in applying to United States and Canada residencies.
6. International Exposure: As is the case with pursuing education abroad, the international exposure gained in Caribbean islands helps the student in gaining exposure to the global world, since he/she gets a chance to interact with foreign students from over all the world. This also adds to their advantage list when seeking employment opportunities in the US and western countries and lead to significant advancement in their careers.
We have given you some of the advantages why you may have to study in the Caribbean. Now, take a decision today and let’s work your way to the Caribbean.
