  • American University of Antigua College of Medicinewww.auamed.org

    American University of Antigua (AUA) College of Medicine was established with the US medical educational model in mind. Our rigorous curriculum prepares students to become compassionate, knowledgeable, highly-competent physicians by providing them with early hands-on clinical training and opportunities to hone their professional skills. Our curriculum, especially the Homeroom Concept, focuses on making medical education more personalized, keeping classes small, and creating academic partnerships between students and faculty that force them to challenge and support each other.
    The MD program consists of two components: Basic Sciences and Clinical Sciences.

    Basic Sciences courses are taught at AUA’s high-tech campus in Antigua. Courses follow a two-semester schedule. AUA’s distinguished faculty is available to mentor students on the foundations of medicine. Students are provided with immersive, preclinical training at the on-campus simulation center and at Mount St. John’s Medical Centre, one of the most advanced hospitals in the Caribbean. This early exposure to clinical situations allows students to excel in their rotations during their clinical years.

    Clinical Sciences courses are taught at AUA-affiliated teaching hospitals throughout the United States, Canada, and India. Here, students apply the knowledge they learned during Basic Sciences to real-life situations.

    The IUHS Difference

    A New Model of Medical Education for the 21st Century

    Understanding that innovation creates sustainable change, IUHS is not a traditional brick and mortar school. The University invests in its students not in large capital-intensive infrastructure. Think of it as medical school 3.0.

    Active Learning

    IUHS uses technological innovation and is on the forefront of the new knowledge about how people learn. The University uses “Active Learning” and problem based cases to contextualize medical science learning in clinical settings and increase comprehension and retention.

    Active Learning puts students and their learning needs at the center of the experience; it stands in contrast to “standard” modes of instruction in which teachers do most of the talking and students are passive.

    A growing body of research has made it clear that the overall quality of teaching and learning is improved when students have ample opportunities to clarify, question, apply, and consolidate new knowledge. As a result, the role of the lecture has dramatically changed. At IUHS the lecture is not abandoned but instructors create opportunities for students to engage new material, serving as guides to help them understand and apply information.

    Benefits to Active Learning:

    • Improved critical thinking skills
    • Increased retention and transfer of new information
    • Increased motivation
    • Improved interpersonal skills

  • University of the West Indies (UWI), Barbados Faculty of Medical Sciencescavehill.uwi.edu

    The Faculty of Medical Sciences (FMS) began its distinguished history as the principal institution for medical education in the Commonwealth Caribbean in 1948 with the establishment of the Medical Faculty at the Mona Campus, Kingston, Jamaica. Initially founded as an overseas College of the University of London, the Faculty of Medical Sciences at Mona was the first established faculty in what, in 1962, was to become the University of the West Indies (UWI). Five years later in 1967, under the Eastern Caribbean Medical Scheme, the Faculty expanded to incorporate clinical training at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Barbados and the Port of Spain General Hospital in Trinidad and Tobago.

    In 1989, the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex was opened at Mount Hope in Trinidad and Tobago. This facility houses UWI’s second full medical school under a multi-disciplinary Faculty that includes Schools of Dentistry, Pharmacy and Veterinary Medicine.

    In 2008, the Cave Hill Campus upgraded and expanded its 40-year-old clinical programme in the School of Clinical Medicine and Research to full faculty status incorporating a 3-year Phase 1 programme. Over the years, postgraduate programmes in a wide range of medical specialties have also been developed at all campuses. The Cave Hill Campus has strong programmes in clinical specialties, leading to the DM in hospital-based specialties as well as the Diploma, Masters and DM in Family Medicine. The Masters in Public Health was initiated in 2008, and most recently, a PhD in Public Health.

    Today, the University of the West Indies as a whole has the unique status of being a truly international university, serving as the principal tertiary education institution for 14 Caribbean (CARICOM) countries, as well as hosting a growing number of international students. In 2006, its Medical Programme was accredited by the Caribbean Accreditation Authority for Education in Medicine and Other Health Professions (CAAM-HP).

    The Faculty of Medical Sciences thus continues to play a vital role in the training of healthcare professionals for the entire region, particularly doctors, and at all levels, from undergraduate through postgraduate to continuing medical education.

  • Saba University School of Medicinesaba.edu

    Saba University School of Medicine was founded in 1992 with a bold mission:  to establish an international alternative to U.S. and Canadian medical schools that would not only provide an excellent medical education and expansive career opportunities but also maintain an affordable tuition.

    More than 25 years and 2,500+ successful graduates later, we’re proud to say that Saba University has lived up to that mission.

    A Record of Success

    Practice Across the U.S. or Canada

    Saba is one of the few international medical schools approved by the key licensing boards of New York, California and Florida, meaning its graduates can practice across the U.S. and Canada.

    Low Student Debt Load

    Our tuition and fees are substantially lower than those at other medical schools—30% to 40% less than those of international medical schools with comparable programs and recognition. That means Saba doctors can start their careers carrying less debt than graduates of most other medical schools.

    Financial Aid Programs

    Saba has been approved by the U.S. Department of Education to participate in the William D.

The Clinical Medicine staff works personally with students to ensure they fully benefit from clinical rotations and go on to attain rewarding residency positions.

    During the Clinical Years, we stress maturity, responsibility, and compassion as important characteristics in the development of professional excellence. Students are expected to learn how to conduct themselves in the role of the physician and are judged on their ability to take initiative, relate to and work harmoniously with professional colleagues, exhibit maturity in conduct on the wards, and demonstrate the demeanor of a mature and qualified physician.

    Curriculum

    The Clinical Medicine curriculum, which follows the Basic Sciences Program, consists of 48 weeks of core clinical rotations and 32 weeks of elective clinical rotations. Students practice clinical skills through patient contact, which is supervised by a preceptor in an inpatient or outpatient care setting. The Clinical Curriculum strives to enhance students’ proficiency in taking medical histories, conducting physical diagnostic examinations, and developing doctor-patient relationship skills, thereby enabling students to become competent, compassionate physicians.

    Core Rotations:

    Surgery 12 Weeks

    Internal Medicine 12 Weeks

    Family Medicine 6 Weeks

    Obstetrics and Gynecology 6 Weeks

    Pediatrics 6 Weeks

    Psychiatry: 6 Weeks

    Rotations

A common characteristic among Trinity students is the altruistic desire to bring healthcare to communities in need. Trinity SOM is happy to harness and nurture that trait to drive quality learning and provide greater global access to care. Our students researched the other Caribbean medical schools and ultimately chose Trinity for its collaborative environment, personal approach to education and the success of our graduates in earning competitive residency placements.

    Studying abroad in St. Vincent for the first half of the MD program affords our students the opportunity to do, see, and learn in settings they wouldn’t have access to elsewhere. Coupled with two years of clinical training in U.S. hospitals, our students graduate as compassionate physicians with the knowledge and skills to compete for their Residency of choice.

    Our Vision is Straight Forward

    To educate physicians to meet the primary care and healthcare needs of the communities they serve. Our graduates are in a position to improve access to quality healthcare and enhance the health status of current and future healthcare systems.
