Many students just to caribbean Med schools without doing proper research about them. Some caribbean medical Universities such as Windsor are well accredited and recognized which enable their students to further pursue their studies and appear in exams. Here are some of the benefits of registering to accredited university like Windsor.<br /><br />Windsor University School of Medicine is accredited by the Board of St. Kitts & Nevis.<br /><br />Windsor graduates are eligible to be Education Commission of Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) certified and eligible to appear in the United States Medical Examination (USMLE) and Medical Council of Canada Evaluating Examination (MCCEE).<br /><br />WUSOM is listed in the World Health Organization Directory of Medical Schools.<br /><br />The ECFMG has also accredited WUSOM.<br /><br />Windsor University has been approved by the Medical Council of Canada and the Medical Council of India.<br /><br />Graduates are also eligible to participate in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) and the Canadian Resident Matching Service (CaRMS).<br /><br />I personally believe doing a well research about university you are going to take admission in is the foremost important thing because it defines your future and worth in the workplace.<br /><br /><a href="http://www.studentdoc.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=18914"></a><hr /> Tue Feb 19, 2019 4:07 am http://www.studentdoc.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=18914#p71484 Caribbean medical school comparison tool http://www.studentdoc.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=17148#p71483 by ElianaBryson (Posted Thu Feb 07, 2019 1:05 am)<br/>There are many factors which come into play when we go for choosing a Caribbean medical school. I believe the major factors should be their clinical affiliates across US and the other is their accreditation. Clinical affiliates helps students in gaining practical exposure along-with making industrial relations and accreditation helps them in being recognized and further move forward to top universities in the field. There are many caribbean schools which accept students easily but many of them are not accredited in United States and Windsor Caribbean Medical School is accredited and their graduates are ECFMG certified and are eligible to appear in USMLE. <br /><br />Before taking admission in any Caribbean Medical School it is necessary that the student checks its accreditation so that it does not become a trouble for them in pursuing their studies afterwards.<br /><br /><a href="http://www.studentdoc.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=17148"></a><hr /> Thu Feb 07, 2019 1:05 am http://www.studentdoc.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=17148#p71483 Residency programs in Caribean a Medical Schools http://www.studentdoc.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=19119#p71479 by ElianaBryson (Posted Wed Jan 30, 2019 4:58 am)<br/>Windsor University has whole housing department which accommodate housing to its students.

Do practice questions.<br /><br />This is an obvious one. The MCAT is not a test of pure memorization. Instead, it’s a test of your ability to apply your knowledge of scientific concepts to novel scenarios and think critically about newly introduced information. Practice problems are the best way to hone these skills <br /><br />2.ake practice tests.<br /><br />The MCAT is a long exam. You have 6 hours and 15 minutes of test-taking time and another hour or so of breaks. You need to take practice tests to build up the mental stamina to maintain focus throughout the exam. Pacing on the MCAT is also a major challenge for many students. You can’t learn how to pace from doing a handful of passages at a time. You need to take full-length MCAT practice tests.<br /><br />We’ve previously spoken about how Khan Academy is a great resource for your MCAT preparation. Watch the videos and do the practice the problems they offer. It’s all free and a great supplement for your MCAT studies.<br /><br />3. Use good material.<br /><br />Khan Academy is great but you need additional MCAT study resources. The best is from the creators of the MCAT, the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC). You want to get your hands on every practice test and practice question you can from the AAMC. These questions come from old MCAT exams. They will be closer to your actual MCAT than any other source. The problem is that the AAMC hasn’t released too many questions, so you’ll want to supplement the AAMC material with other study resources <br /><br />4. Take the MCAT when you are ready.<br /><br />If you know you aren’t ready, don’t take the test. If you don’t know if you are ready, take practice tests. If none of your test scores are remotely close to your target score, you’re not ready. One of the biggest mistakes pre-medical students make is to rush their MCAT studies. Some students get lucky but others not so much. If you are not ready for the exam, there is nothing wrong with postponing your exam and giving yourself more time to study.<br /><br />5.Review Content.<br /><br />Students have to apply their knowledge of science to answer questions on the MCAT. Needless to say, you need to review your science content to do this.<br /><br />6. Study with Friends.<br /><br />Very few (if any) students would say that studying for the MCAT is enjoyable. Studying with friends can make the process less isolating and maybe (just maybe) a little fun.<br /><br />7. Keep yourself busy on the side.<br /><br />If your plan is to study for the MCAT 12 hours a day and do nothing else with your life, you are going to be sad. Don’t do it. Keep yourself busy with other activities. Get more research, volunteer, or clinical experience while you study. It will help keep you sane while improving your medical school application.<br /><br />8. Give yourself deadlines with a study schedule.<br /><br />There is an enormous amount of content that you need to review for the MCAT. Plus, there are a number of practice tests that you are going to want to take. As you can imagine, it is easy to fall behind in your MCAT studies. A study schedule can help with this. By setting yourself deadlines, you know when you need to put in extra time when you are following behind. Additionally, it also tells you if your MCAT test date is realistic.<br /><br />9. Give yourself time.<br /><br />As we described in When Should I Take the MCAT?, there is no minimum number of hours that students need to study to do well on the exam. That being said, you do need time to study. Think about all how much time you need to review content, do practice questions, and take practice tests. If your schedule does not give you time to do all of that, you need to rethink your approach.<br /><br /><a href="http://www.studentdoc.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=19137"></a><hr /> Mon Jul 23, 2018 1:19 am http://www.studentdoc.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=19137#p71412 What Career Opportunities are Available in Public Health http://www.studentdoc.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=19393#p71401 by nupur343 (Posted Fri Jul 13, 2018 11:31 pm)<br/>Health Care Careers are divided into five pathways - Therapeutic Services, Diagnostic Services, Support Services, Health Informatics, and Biotechnology Research and Development.<br /><br />Career Opportunities :<br /><br />Highest Paying Public Health Degrees -<br /><br />1.HEALTH AND SAFETY ENGINEER<br />2.ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENTISTS<br />3.HEALTHCARE ADMINISTRATOR<br />4.BIOSTATISTICIAN<br />5.EPIDEMIOLOGIST<br />6.DOCTORATE DEGREE HOLDERS<br /><br /><a href="http://www.studentdoc.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=19393"></a><hr /> Fri Jul 13, 2018 11:31 pm http://www.studentdoc.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=19393#p71401
