Postgraduate programs

Founded in 1997, St. Matthew's University School of Medicine (SMU) offers students a medical degree education that is completely focused on the success of their students. SMU graduates continuously achieve scholastic success and have gone on to earn top residencies across the U.S. and other countries.  Located in the beautiful Cayman Islands in the Caribbean, SMU offers everything students need to be supported in all aspects of their medical education such as small classes, a talented faculty and access to excellent clinical sites in the U.S. and Canada. 
SMU is known for its high-quality education reflected in the high first-time USMLE Step 1 exam pass rate.  St Matthew’s University maintained a first-time USMLE Step 1 exam pass rate of 95% from 2015 to 2019. An outstanding pre-clinical curriculum and the clinical shadowing programs at Cayman hospitals and clinics help students gain practical exposure and understand the link between Basic Sciences and clinical practice first-hand. This is a great way to bridge the gap between the theory and practice of medicine.

Student life

Students at SMU enjoy studying on the Grand Cayman Island in the Caribbean. The islands are a popular tourist destination, which has boosted the nation’s economy and contributed to its dynamic society. The islands have every modern convenience but still retain the charm and vibrancy of the Caribbean. People from more than 100 countries live and work in this British Overseas Territory, creating a lively and unique blend of cultures. Studying at SMU provides multiple opportunities for recreation against a beautiful, tropical beach background which can help students recharge during their studies. Students also enjoy exploring the island in their free time, benefitting from the restaurants, hotels and beach activities like diving and snorkelling that the Caymans has to offer. 

During clinical rotations, students are exposed to different areas of medicine. The core clinical rotations include surgery, internal medicine, paediatrics, psychiatry and obstetrics, and Gynaecology. 
The electives part of the program allows students to focus on their positioning for the residency process as well as which area they would like to specialise in. Throughout your clinical rotations, the staff at St. Matthew’s works closely with you to best position you for a competitive residency and boost your future career prospects.
