My original impression from others was that medical school would be brutal for our family. Often such schools will expect those applying to them to have a better Grade Point Average (GPA) as well as they will want their potential enrollees to sit a much more difficult MCAT (Medical School Admissions Test). Other than the historically black schools, private schools were nowhere to be seen. You can focus on any area of study at college - you just need to fulfill the pre-medical requirements during that time. Samuelson (Cecil) has also mentioned at student Q&A forums that the patient-base in the Greater Provo Area is not sufficient to justify a large teaching hospital/medical school to be built as a part of BYU. Additionally, attending a medical school located close to you or within your state will allow you to save money on tuition, room and board, and transportation expenses. Entry to BH Medical Schools are very competitive due to limited places imposed by the government quota. I agree, I do not think there are many schools (if any) that accept international transfer students.
With the rest - those 10 med schools above - it might be different and I personally think that it would give you certain advantage, indeed. Yes, the % Internationals Matriculated column does include Canadians (only in case of schools in Canada, where Canadians are not considered to be international students, it doesn't, of course). In this online application service, students can submit one electronic application.
And if we want to have a GOOD med school at BYU, you (mine) tuition and every BYU student tuition will have to at least quadruple pay the cost of a med school. These types of schools often have a great plan for giving you the lessons that work a lot like how you'd do it in a traditional school setting. Medical school is usually followed by a year residency called clinical basic education (Danish: Klinisk basisuddannelse or just KBU) which upon completion grants the right to practices medicine without supervision. We have among the highest acceptance rates in the country for students who apply to medical and dental schools. High USMLE pass rates are a strong indicator that the programs offered by Caribbean schools are top level and that your education and advancement is taken seriously. The majority of the US medical schools accept applications through this service.
However, due to the highly competitive nature of post graduate medical education, I wouldn't plan on getting accepted without completing an undergraduate degree. The remote island of Sint Eustasius, (St Statia), is also known for its underwater beauty as well as the University of Sint Eustasius Medical School. Because of Medical School's demand on my time, I can no longer promise to post consistently on this blog.
In addition to meeting the pre-medical requirements, medical school applicants must take and report their scores on the MCAT , a standardized test that measures a student's knowledge of the sciences and the English language. This group includes the friends and relatives of the students that attend those schools.
