Saint James School of Medicine is an international medical school with two campuses on the Caribbean islands of Anguilla and St. Vincent and the Grenadines. SJSM students study Basic Sciences at one of our Caribbean campuses then study Clinical Sciences through a clinical rotation program at affiliated hospitals in the US.
Saint James School of Medicine was founded in 1999 by a consortium of medical educators and physicians from universities and colleges in the United States and Europe. Hundreds of students have graduated from Saint James since the school was founded. We have a current enrollment of around 1,000 students.
The overall objective of the SJSM medical education program is to instill in students the essential and enduring knowledge, abilities (skills) and behaviors (values, attitudes, dispositions) that will effectively prepare them to enter and complete post-graduate training in the international healthcare environment.
At the conclusion of their education, graduates will have a clinical knowledge base appropriate for first-year residents, will be well prepared to provide care to patients in both ambulatory and hospital settings, will be skilled in knowledge acquisition tools required for lifelong learning, will deal professionally with the ethical, legal, and economic realities of twenty-first century medicine and health care delivery systems, qualify for licensure, and be able to provide competent and compassionate medical care or pursue other careers such as research.
