The application season to medical schools in the US and the Caribbean is coming up soon. While the majority of U.S. medical schools organize campus tours for those seeking admission, making the trip to the Caribbean medical school may be less feasible due to cost and distance implications. Caribbean Medical Schools
recommend that applicants conduct independent research prior to applying.
It is not news that admissions to medical schools in the United States and Canada are very competitive. In the US, fewer than half of applicants are accepted to medical schools each year. In Canada, there is a shortage of medical doctors, but there are still limited slots in Caribbean Medical Schools
The North American medical establishment has long had an uneasy relationship with Caribbean Medical Schools
-- throughout the past few decades, they have grown steadily in number as more and more undergraduates around the U.S. and Canada are denied admission to domestic medical schools. The conventional wisdom for years has been that these foreign medical schools dilute the quality of the field of potential doctors in the U.S. by giving subpar students overpriced and low-quality educations.
Caribbean medical schools
are currently considered as a second-chance med school because of the increased competition currently facing students who want to pursue medicine in the United States. The Caribbean region has experienced many medical schools being set up, and applicants have replicated the growth by applying to attend these institutions in large numbers. The schools are not just taking many students but the candidates who consider the schools are brilliant and talented.
