New Book about Medical Schools
in the Caribbean!
Many students give up on their dream of becoming a physician.
But you don't have to!

Image of Caribbean Medical Schools a Journey and Guide

'Caribbean Medical Schools: A Journey and Guide' is written by a graduate of a Caribbean Medical school. He takes you through the entire process including: admission, financial aid, USMLE tests, clinical rotations, work visas and how to get a residency in the United States. Statistics show that 50 out of 100 American Pre-Med students do not gain admission into medical school in the U.S., and 85 out of 100 Canadian Pre-Med students do not gain admission into medical schools in Canada.

Many students give up on their dream of becoming a physician. But you don't have to! There is a completely reasonable and proven alternative to American and Canadian medical schools. Caribbean Medical Schools offer the first two years of medical school in the Caribbean and the third and fourth years of medical school at hospitals in the U.S. or Canada. After graduation you can obtain post graduate training in the U.S. or Canada! Get step by step information on the entire process, all in this book!
