    Visiting 4th year student electives in Dominica

    Advertisements



    Hi everyone,
    I'm a 4th year med student at a US med school & am interested in electives in Dominica for Spring 2009. Any ideas/advice/contacts? Thanks!

    ^ Sums it up quite nicely.

    Where in the US are you, hatsmd? Why does your interest lie in Dominica?

    This person needs a stat Psych consult. If you want to go to dominica book a cruise. There is no other reason for an alleged US medical student to go there.

    Thanks everyone for your quick replies! I'm from University of Hawaii (yes, we do have a medical school...it's small & most of the students are like me, born & raised in Hawaii) and I was primarily interested in Dominica because I have family there & have a place to stay. I thought it could be interesting to see some trop med issues from a different perspective than I had in Hawaii...anyway if you think it's a waste of time, please let me know why! I definitely don't want to waste my last month of med school! Thanks for your help!

    There really isn't such a thing as clinicals in-country (Dominica in this case) for Caribbean med schools. I know St. George's has what they call "selectives" which I think are observerships in various places around the world. Not sure if they want to offer an outside student a slot in one however. UWI in Jamaica might offer something like this.

    If you are not a student at Ross, I highly doubt you will be able to do clinicals at PMH.
