Industry Leading Retention Rates: Many medical schools boast impressive statistics to attract potential applicants to their school, however these statistics may be very misleading.
One statistic many medical schools try to cover up is attrition rates- the relative percentage of students that do not complete medical school versus the amount of students that began the program. Other Caribbean medical schools may promote the astoundingly large number of students that graduate their program. However, the other medical schools try to hide the amount of students that are lost along the way, up to a shocking forty percent attrition rate. At UMHS instead of focusing on attrition rates, we prefer to use the term retention rate- the percentage of students that complete medical school. An astounding NINETY-SIX percent of the students that enter our MD program graduate from our school and become practicing physicians. We are totally committed to your success and our primary goal is to help you complete school and become a physician. Our faculty, staff, and administration will do everything possible to ensure all of our students pass board examinations, complete school to become an MD physician, and secure an accredited residency.
Highly Trained Admissions Staff: Our school admissions staff is uniquely trained to recognize the potential in all applicants.
Admissions is one of the most important and seldom discussed aspects of medical school. In 1978 the owners of UMHS, the Ross family, founded one of the first Caribbean medical schools. With traditions and beliefs that have been handed down, we have had more than 40 years of experience to develop a system that recognizes candidates that have the best potential to succeed in medical school and have a rewarding career as an MD. Unlike other schools, our hands-on admissions process does not eliminate premed applicants solely based upon GPA or a MCAT score. Some of our best students come from non-traditional backgrounds and/or are candidates that are simply overlooked by other school’s computerized analysis system. With our ninety-six percent retention rate we are confident in our admissions process and that the medical students we admit to our school will have a great career as an MD.
Instructors That Care About Your Success: At other medical schools, instructors may be employed solely based upon their resume and lecture to classes full of hundreds of students. However, at UMHS
our mission is to have a more personalized approach to best educate our medical students. Our faculty share a love of teaching and are fully committed to each student’s success in school and career as an MD. Unlike large class sizes at other medical schools, we have an exceptionally low student-teacher ratio of 8:1 and in all labs we have an even lower 6:1 ratio. This allows for a unique individualized education experience in an academic environment where students can flourish.
Commitment to Quality: At UMHS we are committed to educating uniquely skilled and diverse medical professionals eager to meet the need for MD physicians
in various settings throughout the United States and the world. With a focus on quality patient care, we utilize the latest in advanced technological instruction and personalized education. Our aim is to produce genuinely passionate physicians who are highly prepared for practice in a changing medical landscape.
