However, there is a second route to attaining the Doctor of Medicine degree that has become a viable and reputable choice for many. This road less traveled is Caribbean medical schools. Students abroad enter the U.S. every year with sponsored visas by American hospitals to attain the credentials to practice medicine- so why not American students?
