I just got accepted to med school in the carribean, and I'm somewhat excited. You see, I'm in the US, and I tried to get into med school here, however I didn't. I then decided to become a biologist/chemist but it wasn't enough for me. It's been 2 years since I graduated and I've noticed that i'm not satisfied. I then decided to apply to med school in the carribean, and so be it, I was accepted. I actually cried. You see, medicine is not just a form of physcial healing, but also emotionally. I love to work with people and bring joy to the lives of children. I've travelled extensivly to 3rd world countries in my college years and loved it. Thus, to get accepted to med school was a blessing. My question is this. If you really want to do medicine for the right reasons, does it really matter what school you go to? I guess if you want to do residency in the US, it matters. But if it's medicine you really want to do, shouldn't you go into it with full force? Shouldn't you put down all negative forces? I have seen a lot of negative commets regarding foreign med schools. I often wonder where these comments are coming from. I understand that if I go to the carribean for med school, it may be extremely difficult for me to do residency in the US. If that's the case, I'll do it somewhere else because I'm going into medicine for a different reason; a reason i think is overlooked by many pre-med students.
