ACADEMICS OVERVIEW

A solid foundation in Basic Medical Sciences is essential for the development of strong clinical skills. At Caribbean Medical University, a carefully designed Basic Science curriculum for medical students provides students with the necessary knowledge and skills to successfully progress through the clinical phase of medical education.

The basic science faculty at our campus is an exceptional group of professors and scholars who are dedicated to teaching and who spend a great deal of time with the students. The final phase of the Basic Science education involves preparation for the first part of the United States Medical Licensing Examination.

The Premedical Program is designed for high school graduates or those with less than 90 college credit hours. It provides students with the firm foundation needed to be accepted into MD Program.

The MD Program requires a Baccalaureate degree or at least 90 credit hours of undergraduate education from an accredited institution in addition to having the specific prerequisite courses. It leads to the degree of Medical Doctor (M.D.)

The opportunities for clinical education are many and varied. Caribbean Medical University has clinical sites in the United States and Canada. All sites offer the same basic clinical education even though there may be local differences due to the venue. Once core rotations in Internal Medicine, Family Practice, Ob/Gyn, Pediatrics, Psychiatry and Surgery are complete, students have the opportunity to take elective rotations in a wide array of clinical disciplines.
