Exploring Medical Education in the Caribbean

South America's Biggest Little Secret

​​​The trend of pursuing medical studies abroad is gearing up at a steady pace and is gaining momentum every year. As a result of this, many students and parents are being presented with a variety of options in terms of medical universities abroad, putting many in a dilemma, as to which destination to choose.

There are several factors to consider while choosing the University Abroad for Medical Studies. Exposure in terms of clinical rotation will be a biggest challenge as most of the countries (China, Russia, Ukraine, Philippines) have less than 8 percent of English speaking population – interaction with the patients, which plays a critical role in exposure while they study, will be a challenging task.

With an education system known for its high standards throughout the country, many international students fulfill their aspirations of studying abroad by taking admission in Guyana or Caribbean. Moreover, the Option for U.S. Residency is specific for the medical schools in the Caribbean.

Guyana is well-known as ‘South America’s Biggest Little Secret’ because of its spectacular natural beauty and amazing biological diversity. It is home to some of the world’s largest and rarest flora and fauna including the Victoria Regent Lily, the tiny Golden Frog and more. Guyana is the only English speaking country in South America.

TAU is currently registering students for its Doctor of Medicine (MD) program. The university offers the program with clinical rotations in the USA.
