Personalized education

Thanks to our small class sizes and low student-to-faculty ratio of 8:1, you’ll have ample opportunities to work one-on-one with our experienced, highly credentialed faculty.


Exceptional placement

Our graduates have obtained premier residency positions in the U.S. and Canada. In fact, nearly 120 of our students matched with their program of choice in our 2018 graduating class.


Affordable tuition

Some Caribbean medical schools charge an unreasonably high tuition; not us. The tuition at UMHS is purposefully affordable so that you can spend more time thinking about practicing medicine rather than paying debt.


I chose UMHS because they believe in their students. I was very encouraged by the school’s culture of innovation, outside-the-box approach to education, and constant growth…[They lived up to their promise. Ultimately,] I managed to secure one rotation at Case Western and UMHS helped me set up a six-week Ophthalmology elective, which helped me land my research fellowship at Wills Eye Hospital.

State-of-the-art campus

UMHS has one of the most modern campuses in the Caribbean. It was modeled after several leading U.S. medical schools, and is comparable in almost every way – from the cutting-edge anatomy and human simulation labs to the robust library and learning resource center. Equipped with the latest technology, the campus provides an outstanding learning environment for future doctors.


Word-class academics

UMHS is fully accredited by the Accreditation Commission on Colleges of Medicine (ACCM), which is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education through the National Committee on Foreign Medical Education and Accreditation (NCFMEA). ACCM has adopted U.S. standards of accreditation both as written and applied. This is one of the highest standards of accreditation an offshore medical school can obtain.

Exceptional doctors require extraordinary training.
