A Brief History of Guyana by The World Factbook

Flag of United StatesOriginally a Dutch colony in the 17th century, by 1815 Guyana had become a British possession. The abolition of slavery led to settlement of urban areas by former slaves and the importation of indentured servants from India to work the sugar plantations. The resulting ethnocultural divide has persisted and has led to turbulent politics. Guyana achieved independence from the UK in 1966, and since then it has been ruled mostly by socialist-oriented governments. In 1992, Cheddi JAGAN was elected president in what is considered the country's first free and fair election since independence. After his death five years later, his wife, Janet JAGAN, became president but resigned in 1999 due to poor health. Her successor, Bharrat JAGDEO, was reelected in 2001 and again in 2006. Donald RAMOTAR was elected president in 2011. Read More...

5th Semester

We help 5th semester medical students transition from basic science to clinical medicine. Giving them a clear understanding of what it means to be a physician, in addition to preparing them for Step 1. The overall goal is to improve the thought process associated with health care delivery, by making it more effective and efficient. There are several components of the program that will accomplish our mission of preparing students to practice medicine.

Our site is NBME approved for examinations.

Students will rotate with Attending Physicians in alternating weeks to observe and have hands on participation in the practice of medicine. It is advisable that each student maximize the value of this opportunity by taking advantage of the resources, physicians, and learning opportunities offered through the clinical experience provided.

To compliment the clinical rotations, there is a lecture series on relevant clinical topics that students attend in alternative clinical weeks. These topics are for USMLE Step 1 preparation and include a wide range of major disease processes students will need throughout their career. The mornings are dedicated to basic science review and the afternoons to case presentation and lecture on the presented case.

Utilizing several components, students will demonstrate their intellectual and practical growth. These components include quizzes, exams, presentation of a patient case, and a comprehensive portfolio of S.O.A.P notes taken by the student during the rotation
