Central America consists of seven countries: Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Panama. Belize is one of the most sought after destinations for medical education in the region due to the English speaking local population and the courses being taught in English.

The Caribbean region has in the last 35 years has developed into a medical education hub for international students, especially from USA, Canada, India and European countries, thanks to the American Education system and curriculum strictly followed by the universities, also that have their clinical sites all over the United States. Studying Medicine at the Caribbean is a clear and easiest pathway to continue medical education and practice in USA. Most students studying in the Central American / Caribbean Medical Universities have been successful in the Residency placements and are working in over 45 countries, especially USA, Canada, UK, Australia, New Zealand, etc.

EDUCATION

Few of Recommended Universities:

  • St George’s University, Grenada
  • Spartan Health Sc. University, St Lucia
  • Trinity University School of Medicine, St Vincent & Grenadines
  • St Martinus University, Curacao
  • American International Medical University, St Lucia
  • Central America Health Sc University, Belize

Key Reasons to Study Medicine in the Caribbean islands & Central America:

  • Caribbean medical schools strictly follow the US Education system and curriculum and are focused on preparing Physician workforce for countries like USA, Canada, etc.
  • Opportunity to pursue 2 Years of Clinical rotations program in teaching hospitals in USA / UK.
  • MCAT, SAT, IELTS / TOEFL Scores not required

  • In most Accredited Universities we suggest, students write the NBME - National Board of Medical Examiners’ examination - USA's board examinations.
    • NBME is the body that conducts the board exit examinations for Medical students in the US Universities.
    • NBME is the body that governs the USMLE examinations as well. Hence, most of these universities follow the same curriculum followed in USA / Canada and impart USMLE practice from Semester 1.
  • Shorter course durations: 4 – 5.5 Years. Premedical qualification is not mandatory in few universities for students with strong academic background
  • 100% FREE, Globally recognized post graduate training in USA / other developed countries on successful completion of USMLE or other respective licensing examinations
  • Stipend paid during Post Graduate Education (Minimum of 3,500 - 8,000 $ pm)
  • High standards of living; Safe, secure and peaceful environment.
  • Climatic conditions similar to India (temperatures ranging from 25⁰C to 35⁰C), Good for Clinical exposure.
  • Over 2.5 million / Approx 30% of people in the Caribbean are of Indian origin (Source: Wikipedia).
  • Few universities here are run and facilities governed by Indian managements; Good number of Indian students.
  • Three intakes a year: January, May and September

    • ECFMG – Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates, USA
    • FAIMER’s IMED – Foundation for Advancement of International Medical Education and Research’s International Medical Education Directory, USA
    • ACGME – Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education – Residency / Teaching hospitals in USA
    • MCC – Medical Council of Canada
    • WHO – World Health Organization’s Avicenna Directories, etc.,

In general terms, these universities are similar to IIT and other entrance exam Olympiad schools operating in few parts of India. Apart from imparting medical education, the universities focus completely on the licensing examination [USMLE (USA), MCCQE (Canada), PLAB (UK), AMC (Aus / NZ), etc.] and prepare the aspiring students to be successful in the same.

Hence the programs are career oriented, yet cost effective / value for money.

Program Structure:

The programs are structured such that once the students clear Step 1 of NBME / USMLE after finishing Basic Medical Sciences in Yr 2 (in some cases Yr 3) they could continue their 3rd and 4th year – Clinical studies (in few cases 4th and 5th years) in affiliated teaching hospitals in USA(Optional). Students can do the clinical rotation in UK even without clearing PLAB/USMLE.

After finishing USMLE Step 1&2 with a decent score (Either in USA / UK or Central America), Students get a Temporary / Provisional License to pursue the Residency program in USA / Canada.

“Residency” is an option for students to pursue Post Graduate training / Specialization in a teaching hospital in USA / Canada / UK, etc, on work based study mode. The PG program is 100% free of tuition fee. A very good stipend is paid during the program. Minimum Stipend ranges from US $ 4,000 and may be up to US $ 12,000 / Month.
