    UMHS Portland,
    ME Campus

    The 5th semester campus, where students transition from St. Kitts to the US, and Basic Science to Clinicals

    The UMHS facilities in Portland, Maine feature:

    • A library and learning resource center
    • A large classroom
    • A skills laboratory
    • Multiple examination rooms

    The fifth semester consists of two required courses: Introduction to Clinical Medicine II and Biological Basis of Clinical Medicine. The last six weeks of the semester includes a live USMLE review course through Kaplan Medical.   Once students complete the 5th semester they are prepared to sit and pass USMLE Step 1 and seamlessly transition into the clinical program.

    All student clinical experiences are led by a team of experienced Maine-based physicians, many of whom have decades of medical practice and teaching experience. Students are assigned to work with physicians in actual patient-care settings at hospitals, clinics, and office health centers in and around Portland. The opportunity to work beside renowned Maine physicians is designed to build student clinical capabilities, increase student confidence, and enhance student performance on the USMLE
