Medical school opens third new campus in St Vincent
Published on May 6, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

KINGSTOWN, St Vincent -- Saint James School of Medicine has announced the opening of its third campus located on the Caribbean island of St Vincent.

For the past 14 years, the Saint James School of Medicine group of medical schools has provided accessible, affordable and quality education to over 2,500 students. Offering an MD program designed to prepare students for the United States Medical Licensure Examination (USMLE), and residency in the US and Canada, Saint James provides the foundation for a successful medical career.

With the launch of its new campus, Saint James now has three campuses located in St Vincent, Bonaire and Anguilla.

The newly opened campus gives motivated students the opportunity to realize their dream of a medical career all while enjoying the beautiful island of St Vincent, the largest of the group of islands that make up the St Vincent and the Grenadines. It also has the largest population of the islands where Saint James has its campuses, with over 100,000 people and a good infrastructure to support this. Popular American chains such as KFC and Pizza Hut, located in the same neighbourhood as the new campus, give students a sense of familiarity, reminding them that they are not too far from home.

Whether it's a visit to the Botanic Gardens, hiking through the mountainous terrain marked by rivers, rapids and waterfalls or relaxing on one of the prominent black sand beaches, students will enjoy all of what St Vincent has to offer in addition to a quality education.

"As the demand for qualified physicians escalates, medical schools limit the number of students, and the cost of medical education increases," said Raj Mitra, Saint James' vice president of enrollment. "Saint James School of Medicine's continued growth will fulfill a vital role in providing quality healthcare in the US and Canada."

Peter Binose:

According to the internet the Bonair school closed in 2013. It would appear that they have been having trouble with the US licensing authorities and the accreditation process.

I hope this doesn't prove to be another case of not carrying out proper investigation, due diligence.

Has anyone researched them I have not currently got time.
