This is seriously the most photogenic medical school I have ever seen. How could you beat this view? White-washed walled buildings next to a light-blue ocean.

Class Size (per trimester):
Attrition Rate (people who leave and do not graduate from the school):
- SGU’s clinical rotations take place predominantly in the US. They have many affiliated hospitals on the East Coast. SGU’s students have an easier time securing clinical rotation spots than students in other Caribbean schools.
- As of 2011-2012, SGU’s tuition is roughly $23,000 per trimester. To graduate from SGU, you will have to attend for 10 trimesters. That means the total tuition cost is $230,000. That is more than Harvard Medical School’s tuition cost of $190,000! That’s quite steep. As you can see, you are paying a very high price for this chance to become a doctor. But it offers you the best chance out of the other Caribbean schools.
