Why do students choose Saint James School of Medicine

Students wishing to study medicine in the United States can find getting into medical school challenging. Many medical schools in the US are over-subscribed and highly competitive and having good GPA and MCAT results may no longer be enough to win a place. It’s a sadly, often expressed opinion that getting into medical school can be the hardest challenge of your medical career. At the same time the US faces a severe physician skill shortage. The Department of Health and Human Services issued a report in 2006 which indicated that by the year 2020, the deficit of physicians could reach 55,000. Other studies paint a still bleaker picture. So the US needs more physicians, but its medical schools cannot keep up with the demands of bright, skilled young people wishing to train for a medical career. As a result many able and qualified medical school candidates are choosing to sidestep the time consuming and sometimes demoralizing process of applying to study in the US and instead looking at their options for getting a quality medical education elsewhere. Saint James School of Medicine specializes in offering a quality, affordable medical education. The school is geared towards preparing students to pass USMLE, so that they may become a doctor in the US or Canada. Our medical school is listed in the World Directory of Medical Schools with an ECFMG® Sponsor Note. For the graduation years indicated in the Sponsor Note, our students and graduates are eligible to apply to ECFMG for ECFMG Certification and USMLE® as a step towards ECFMG Certification (required for entry into a residency program in the United States). The school is listed in the International Medical Education Directory produced by FAIMER. Saint James ensures that its fees are highly competitive, even among other Caribbean medical schools. In addition the cost of living in Anguilla and Bonaire is reasonable. It’s good not to have the added stress of beginning a medical career saddled with hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of debt. Saint James School of Medicine has grown rapidly since its inception, and is committed to becoming one of the top medical schools in the Caribbean. Its small class sizes ensure individual attention. The school is constantly working on upgrading its facilities, attracting the highest caliber of teaching staff and growing its accreditations and affiliations globally. The school already has a solid 76% residency placement rate and is working to build on that. Saint James School of Medicine believes that a high quality medical education should be affordable and accessible to everyone. That’s a vision that resonates with many and the school is building on the sound foundation of its first 10 years for a future, which will see many more bright, motivated St James graduates begin their careers as physicians.
