This guide was originally started in 1999 by me for a few friends who were interested in attending a foreign medical school. It was soon realized that this information was very much needed by many others as well looking for the best medical schools in the Caribbean.
Since then, in the past 13 years now, my Caribbean medical school guide, book, website and forum have been widely read, with tens of thousands of students from all over the world taking advantage of the valuable information they provide. I honestly never thought the response would be so profound.
The goal of the guide remains the same: to provide step-by-step information to anyone who is interested in studying medicine at a Caribbean medical school and then going to the United States to obtain a residency and later a license to practice medicine.
I have gone through the entire process: I have attended and graduated from a Caribbean medical school, completed the two years on the island, completed the two years of clinical rotations in the United States. I have passed the MCAT, USMLE Step 1, USMLE Step 2 CK, USMLE Step 2 CS, TOEFL, MCCEE, MCCQE Part 1 and USMLE Step 3.
I received my ECFMG certificate and the H-1B Visa and I did my post-graduate (residency) training in the United States. I obtained my full state medical license and am now practicing as a physician in the U.S.
If you wish my success to be yours, I can show you how: it’s all outlined and explained in detail in this book. Simply read the book and be on your way. I wish you the very best in achieving your goals!
