One of the main reasons that medical students don’t enter primary care specialties like Family Medicine and Internal Medicine, is that the pay packages are typically less lucrative than other specialties, such as Surgery or Radiology. Medical students from schools such as Saint James are more likely to enter primary care specialties than a US medical student because they are not burdened by huge student loan debt. While a US medical student's foremost concern is making enough money to pay back their enormous student loans and still have enough left over to maintain a good lifestyle, students from the Caribbean, who typically have little or no debt, are free to choose primary care as their specialty, for the love of medicine, and still live a lifestyle becoming of a doctor.
