USMLE prep and clinicals in US Hospitals

Our students do their USMLE prep and clinical rotations alongside students from some of America’s best medical schools at a fraction of the cost.

The Clinical Sciences component of our top quality MD program is completed over six semesters (96 weeks) at affiliated hospitals and clinical facilities in the US.

Saint James is the only medical school in the Caribbean that guarantees clinical rotations in the United States and currently we have no waiting time for rotations. We have a strong established network of US hospitals and clinical institutions and continuously invest in growing these affiliations.

The first part of Clinical Sciences is an Advanced Introduction to Clinical Medicine. This takes place in Chicago at an affiliated hospital and consists of eight weeks of intensive preparation and review for the USMLE Step 1, followed by eight weeks of introductory concepts in clinical medicine, including rotations through various departments.
