    Should I consider going to UNIBE?

    Advertisements



    I have family in DR, and I recently visited the school and got lots of information of their English Medicine program. Clearly UNIBE is not the same as going to an American medical school. I will be starting pre-med in about a year. I'm confused on whether I should get a bachelor's degree and apply to a US school, get a bachelor's degree then go to UNIBE, or just start at UNIBE straight off the bat. What are your opinions on UNIBE's medical program and on what I should do?

    You should NEVER attempt to go to a Caribbean medical school before exhausting all possibilities of going to a U.S. medical school. Consider also the possibility of applying to U.S. Osteopathic medical schools (D.O. granting programs). You can do the same residency programs as M.D. graduates.

    In short, Caribbean programs should be a LAST resort. The advantages of being a U.S. graduate FAR outweigh going the Caribbean route. And in any circumstances, get your Bachelor's degree before proceeding on to graduate school.

    In my humble opinion, UNIBE is a great choice if you have exhausted your possibility of going to med school in the US. I personally dismayed the possibility of going to med school here in the states due to both financial and time issues. At least try to obtain an associates degree, the most science based will help you most. I don't know if UNIBE will accept anyone into their pre-med without having some college credits or not, but if they do then just go straight into it without hesitation. hope it helped somewhat.

    I would get my bachelors in the U.S. prior to going to unibe. You never know you might be able to get into a med school in the u.s. which should be your plan A, plan B could always be unibe.
