Welcome To USESOM

Offering a four-year U.S. medical degree (M.D.) program, the University of Sint Eustatius School of Medicine (USESOM) is known as a premier Caribbean medical university along with having small class sizes and one of the best Clinical Medicine programs in the region.

Unique among Caribbean medical schools, we know our students by name, not by their student ID number. With a low 10:1 student-teacher ratio, professors’ doors are always open for assistance. Every student has an opportunity to participate in group study, or find a space for quiet, self study time – maybe even on the beach!

The Clinical Program of the University of Sint Eustatius offers a wide range of rotation opportunities. Instead of rotating in a single hospital or clinical group, USESOM students rotate at over 60 clinical sites throughout the U.S. Students can elect to rotate in a specific geographical location, or choose multiple sites across the country.

The Spirit of Collaboration

Our deans and faculty are drawn from leadership positions in the U.S. and world medical academic mainstreams. We are extraordinarily sensitive to the unique needs and challenges of international medical students. We have years of experience overseeing international students’ seamless transition into mainstream clinical training, research and practice opportunities.
The tangible rewards are great. The intangible rewards are priceless. A medical degree confers a measure of pride, respect and flexibility unprecedented in other professions.

  • USESOM in St. Maarten

    The founders obtained the support for a medical school from the people and government of the island of Sint Eustatius (Statia). Subsequently, the University of Sint Eustatius was awarded a Charter, which was signed by the Minister of Education, the Minister of Health, and the Governor of Sint Eustatius on April 21, 1999, and Statia began to share another commonality with its neighboring and regional islands – hosting a Caribbean medical school.

    On May 27, 1999 the Education Committee on Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) confirmed the eligibility of graduates from the University of Sint Eustatius School of Medicine to register for the United States Medical Licensing Examinations (USMLE).

    The University of Sint Eustatius School of Medicine opened the doors to its first class of students on September 1, 1999, and was subsequently listed by the World Health Organization (W.H.O.) in 2000.

    In September, 2013, the school moved to Sint Maartin. The school under new ownership and management obtained a charter in Sint Maartin in January 2013.

  • Admissions

    At the outset, applicants should become familiar with the time-frame for the processing of completed applications. At the same time, to prevent delays in processing, applicants should ensure that all required admissions documents are submitted in good order, noting any special requirements which may be relevant to applicants from outside of the U.S. and/or those applying for admission as transfer students with advanced standing. There is no MCAT requirement but it is recommended.

  • Traveling to St. Maarten

    Often referred to as the crossroads of the Caribbean, St. Maarten is located at the northern end of the Lesser Antilles, approximately 150 miles southeast of Puerto Rico. The island is just three hours from New York City and two hours forty-five minutes from Miami. International and regional airline carriers operate flights through St.Maarten’s Princess Juliana Airport (SXM).  

    Local Attractions And Places To Stay

    Whether you are staying on the quieter less populated French side of St. Martin or the more upbeat Dutch St. Maarten, both areas have hotels and resorts that fit most travelers vacationing needs.

    Active visitors will find opportunities to swim, wind surf, parasail, and scuba dive among other water sports; while the more relaxed vacationers can lie in the sand baking in the sun, or spend some time combing the beaches for a natural souvenir. Not all of St. Maarten's attractions are as family friendly as the museums and beaches.  As the sun sets, the time for some more adult fun dawns.  The Dutch side of the island is home to all of its 13 casinos, many located within hotels. Discos and music clubs are popular night time attractions, filled with visitors looking to listen to local music, sip adult beverages, and dance the night away.
