Saint James School of Medicine 2013 Match



This year, Saint James School of Medicine has a very high number of people matching in the national match program.  SJSM posted the list on their website.  How many applied for the match is unknown but apparently there are 28 people who pre-matched/matched. Other than Internal Medicine and Family Medicine residency programs, there are individuals who matched in Anesthesiology, Pediatrics, Psychiatry, Neurology, OB/GYN, General Surgery; I bolded the competitive specialties.

So the next time you ask yourself if you can get a residency in the US by going to SJSM, just look at the list and be motivated.

I know at least 7 people personally who are on the list and I’ve seen most of them on the island going to class, studying, and partying, and so keep your chin up and work hard. One of them just texted me saying that by God willing, that I will be where he is soon.

So for those who are on the islands, Bonaire or Anguilla, or who are in clinical clerkships or studying for Step 1, just remember to work hard and soon you will reach your goal.

This is all good and well, but what is happening to the student right now? Bonaire Campus is about to shut down. SJSM has failed to provide the student body OR the faculty any solid answers as to what is about to happen. The owner of the university is also NOWHERE to be seen releasing any statements or anything & all the students are on the band wagon to failure.. SJSM keeps saying oh we will go to court blah blah blah BUT what the Dutch Government & SJSM has NO baring what so ever on the requirements of ECFMG who gave them until October, at which point Bonaire Campus WILL BE shut down.. You might wana do a post on this!

I would explain it but I don't know much about it.

It all has to do with politics. Dutch government wants to open their own school in Bonaire and for that reason they have not allowed SJSM to continue. SJSM knew this from before and for that reason they opened a new campus until the British. Students from Bonaire are still safe because they will be transferred to the Anguilla campus. However, those that graduated from Bonaire and are applying for residency will be the hardest hit. Prayers out for them!
