The MD program at Saint James is a 10 semester course of study that consists of three semesters per calendar year. Semesters 1-4 are basic sciences semesters that are completed at one of the school's three Caribbean campuses (Anguilla, Bonaire, and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines). Semester 5 (Advanced Introduction to Clinical Medicine) is completed at Jackson Park Hospital in Chicago, Illinois. Semesters 6-10 consist of 96 weeks of clinical study that are completed at affiliated hospitals and clinical facilities in the United States.[4]


Saint James School of Medicine is listed in the FAIMER International Medical Education Directory (IMED)[2] and in the AVICENNA Directory for medicine.[5]

In June 2011, the Caribbean Accreditation Authority for Education in Medicine and other Health Professions (CAAM-HP) granted initial accreditation as a developing school to the university's Anguilla campus.[5]
