Caribbean Medical University has affiliations and/or preceptors with the following hospitals and medical centers.
A clinical center is defined as a hospital, or group of hospitals, able to provide at least four of five core rotations and train 5 to 10 students at all times. Clinical centers provide sub-internships, primary care rotations and electives.
With CMU clinical directors, clerkship directors and faculty at each location, our students, like many U.S. medical students, can receive their clinical education in their own “university” clinical program.
During the rotations, our students are covered by the Malpractice Liability Insurance. Clinical Clerkship weeks constitute third and fourth year medical education to complete a Doctor of Medicine degree.
Although the majority of all CMU students complete their clinical rotations in the United States, rotations outside the United States are also available. Students may participate in rotations in Canada, U.K., Ireland, Israel, Poland, Germany, India and Netherlands Antilles.
Currently, the states and provinces where our students are eligible to schedule Clinical Clerkship are listed below. Listings are adjusted frequently as the Clinical Department works to acquire new rotation slots.
We are continuously expanding our clinical program and affiliations. We are currently in the process of obtaining affiliations with hospitals and approvals with the State Licensing Boards of New York and Alabama. All core rotations must be done in ACGME approved teaching hospitals. Students may set up their own rotations with consent from the Dean of Clinical Medicine.
