University of Medicine and Health Sciences Information Session

Shyam Dharia, Associate Director of Admissions for the University of Medicine and Health Sciences will discuss the curriculum and answer any questions you may have. The curriculum at UMHS is modeled after the best U.S. medical schools. UMHS offers a traditional Basic and Clinical Science program. The academic program is both accelerated and rigorous, with a focus on preparing students for licensure in the United States and Canada. UMHS operates on a trimester schedule, with classes beginning in September, January, and May. Each semester is approximately 15 weeks in length, and students can complete the 10-semester program in roughly four years. The Basic Science curriculum, semesters one through four, is offered at our state-of-the-art campus in St. Kitts. UMHS' faculty are highly qualified and appropriately credentialed. They are recruited primarily from the United States and are fully dedicated to our student's success. UMHS maintains small classes to ensure a personalized education. The University provides a variety of support services throughout the Basic Science program to ensure that students succeed academically and personally. Our faculty dedicate virtually all of their time to teaching, helping students, and providing counseling and tutoring services. UMHS has a 93% First-time pass rate on the USMLE.
