It was your best option at the time, and a doctor is still a doctor if you put in the work. We are scheduled to graduate May 2019 and the school wanted us to take all this time to prepare for 2020 Match. LINK. Their match rate into residencies are about 50% last I heard compared to 98% for US MDs. Although, after hearing the point of view from many Caribbean students, including one that had to live on a boat cause of a hurricane, it is my honest and objective opinion that one should always consider a osteopathic school over a Caribbean school. he was also scribing or what? Look to your left, now look to your right. I don't understand people who do carib for the letters. It’s the easiest way to ruin your life forever. As an example, my undergraduate institution was 70%+ premed. But this wasn’t my experience. (Maybe we all know the same guy?). And because of these success rates, many people attend (alongside the fact that they have lower standards). A DO imo is way more prestigious than Carib MD. Caribbean schools are for profit schools that’ll accept anyone who can pay. Also this post is about offshore medical schools in the Caribbean, not the regional medical schools that are for Caribbean people meant to practice in the Caribbean. Simple as that. But it sounds like an uphill battle which you already started below everyone else. Caribbean medical schools vary widely in their attrition rates and accreditation, experts say. Do people still not realize that these are academic lotteries just to take your money? As to your question OP - It stems from lots of sources I gather. It is completely up to you and how hard you work when you're down here whether or not you end up with a residency. this might be a stupid question but why were you scribing with him? I know they have a bad rep, but I wouldn’t say it’s the easiest way to ruin your life forever lol. This post is not meant to shit on Caribbean Schools, just really trying to understand the thought process. Sorry, this post was deleted by the person who originally posted it. Sometimes, Ill let you know after match. Many of those schools also purge their students by making them take a mock step exam and kicking out the ones who fail. I applied and matriculated into a DO school because I believe in Still, the intrinsic ability of the body to heal itself, and muscle energy for T-spine somatic dysfunctions. You aren't going to find a single person on reddit or SDN that recommends going there. More of a gamble than a lottery. Yea the guy actually gave us a website to see where all their students matched and majority are family medicine/internal medicine. It doesn't appear in any feeds, and anyone with a direct link to it will see a message like this one.

What many people seem to misunderstand about the Caribbean is that the risk of going there is largely self-mitigated and determined by your own performance. This is the group that can be most helped. These are the people who very quickly drop out, flunk out, or coast through with minimal scores and then don't match to a residency. As soon as people find out where you went to school your letters lose their "wow". There’s a post in the sidebar that has a lot more info on why you shouldn’t go there. These are the most innocuous and innocent variety of Caribbean students. To be fair, no one wants a friend to throw their money, time, and life away. Some individuals truly do not understand the risks. Historically, Caribbean schools were seen as a last resort — a final chance to open the door into medicine. Caribbean medical schools such as Ross follow a basic science curriculum similar to those of American medical schools and even allow you to do your clinicals in the US. They lie constantly about numbers, they have massive attrition rates, match rates are abysmal and if you do match it will most likely be at a malignant program somewhere in the middle of nowhere. eh, I had no idea Caribbean schools were looked down on until lurking here. They have a high fail rate because they have a high acceptance rate. The odds of that being you are just outrageously slimmer at a Caribbean school. That's just how it is. Honestly do podiatry before carib MD ( and DO before podiatry-lol). Don’t believe absolutely anything Carib reps say to you, ever, even if they claim the sky is blue. They have a high fail rate because they have a high acceptance rate. I am sure that there are doctors that go to the Caribbean who become better physicians than many American medical graduates, but just by attending a Carib program you now have a significant red flag into your residency application. (This is vital for residency you will never get) Avg. Press J to jump to the feed. I'm 29 y/o, recently graduated from medical school 2 years ago with $450,000 in student loans from both undergrad college and med school. I don't know about other schools, but SGU has a match rate of around 93%, and Ross 88%. For reference, I go to a DO school. There will always be Caribbean success stories. Id say a large majority know they made a crappy choice going their but DO school was not an option but they are okay with being a PCP. Of course I would. my parents are both doctors in____ and they think id be good too" A small minority of them went because their whole life they've told everyone they are gonna be doctors and that feeling/pride has forced them to go to the island because they couldn't get in state side and felt embarrassed not achieving what they have been telling everyone for years. score on Step 1 is 226!! Remember that the school has its own agenda. Some of them are in denial, as if going to the Caribbean has better match odds than Osteopathic U.S. Schools? Would I change my school and path if I could? UMHS is a fully accredited Caribbean medical school for U.S. licensure that offers the following distinctions and disadvantages: 94% pass USMLE Step 1 on the FIRST ATTEMPT! oh boy. Once a Caribbean medical student makes it past basic science they should be considered the same as US medical students. A parallel group I'd like to add, that could fall into the above ones.
