Caribbean Medical University is one of the top medical schools in the Caribbean, established by Caribbean Medical University Foundation and registered on the island of Curacao, supported by the Government of Curacao.
Our goal is to prepare students for the next level of medical training in ACGME-accredited American teaching hospitals by implementing U.S. standard curriculum, used in the best North American LCME/AAMC colleges of medicine stressing Higher Order Thinking Skills (knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis and evaluation) tested in USMLE Step I rather than simple memorization of facts.
At Caribbean Medical University, we intend to create an entirely new model of medical education, one that will enhance the university's ability to act as a transformational agent in health care. Our unique approach embraces cross-disciplinary teaching modalities, breakthrough technologies, and innovative ways to advance training in both basic science and clinical skills throughout the medical school curriculum. In addition, we wish to deepen students' understanding of academic medicine to better prepare tomorrow's doctors and make a far-reaching impact on their further career.
