Medical Students
The medical school has a seven-year curriculum, including a 1-year (the 7th year) internship. The hospital also trains students from the schools of Dentistry, Pharmacy, Nursing, Medical Technology, Physical and Occupational Therapy, Nutrition, Radiology, and Psychology as well as those from the School of Medicine. The internship training is also provided for other medical colleges on this island. We instill in our students, as well as in our faculty, a firm commitment to a lifetime of learning, while equipping them to understand and meet the evolving health needs of all segments of our population. To enrich and expand the students’ understanding of patients and the context in which patients experience illness and seek care, there are foundation courses in such subjects as introduction to medicine, physicians and the humanities, physicians and society, humanity and medical care, medical technology and patients, life and death, and medical ethics and health behavior.
