    I have applied to St. George Medical school in the Caribbean, and may also apply to Ross medical school in the Caribbean.

    What are your thoughts about Caribbean medical schools, specifically St. George's? Are these med school a good way to become a physician, and how difficult is it to do residency in the U.S. after graduating from a Caribbean med school?

    What is the academic lifetyle and social lifestyle in Caribbean med schools? Any advice?

    Thanks!!

    If you are from the U.S. and want to practice medicine in the U.S. I would strongly urge you to go to medical school in the U.S.. There are strong negative stigmas associated with Caribbean schools, and this can greatly affect your residencies. You would also have to get great board scores (as a general rule) to compensate for that.
