#wink What about the university of Guyana Medical School? IS it rated in the Caribbean? Im thinking of applying there? Any guyanase here? Any Jamaican Here? Ive noticed that most of the medical schools in the caribbean are private-off shore american schools.Sooo they r really not Caribbean Medical Schools per se.The school fees one will knock out Caribbean bred and born--its all in US and the US is a far way stronger currency than most of the caribbean countries.Moreover they want MCATS--AND Bsc's----that just doesnt happen in a real Caribbean Medical School.But hold up its a more rigourous schooling that we get versus the others.#shocked
Any one out there can name some schools that dont want MCATS/ A BSC?#cool

Hi Follks, Just filling in on this thread. The University of Guyana Medical School is currently accredited by UWI so doctors graduating from the school can practise freely throughout the caribbean region. Some ppl like later on choose to do USMLE, PLABs or rarely the Australian board exam and go further afield or in earlier times ppl had to do CAMCE before doing post-grad at UWI.
Advantages..small classroom size, very good ward experience(wider than small island training),
Disadvantage...basic sciences could be more is too easy to pass.

Hope this helps!
I was hoping i would hear that university of Guyana was equally good before applying.
