Studying in the Caribbean is no walk in the park then again which medical school is, though before you even make the decision of going to med school you have to remember; 1st of all you are starting med school it wont be easy, second of all you are starting as Caribbean student, so you have to work even harder than other people to make it.

Recently i have been getting a lot of questions regarding starting in St James, i know its a scary decision to make, i was in the same shoes as well but now that i have come this far there is no turning back. But before anyone makes this big decision its good to be informed, so an educated decision can be made. I have already mentioned in a previous post, why I picked St James, but recently i came across some interesting posts so ill share those hoping that it will help all the students with their decision..

What's Wrong With 3 Hours of Sleep?

Make Sleep a Priority
Isn't it best for med students to get used to sleep deprivation to train for being on-call?
Medical school has been described as trying to drink from a fire hose. There is just so much information being thrown at you and so many demands from exams, clinical rotations, presentations, and research that it can begin to feel like there is never enough time in the day to get it all done. If you want to have any personal or family life, you start to think that unless you cut out sleep, you are not going to get it all done. Particularly at peak busy times, like before big exams, boards, or presentations, it might be tempting to pull an all-nighter or at least severely restrict your sleep to just an hour or two. Some might even argue that it is good preparation for the inevitable calls to be taken in residency. However, I would argue against that thought process and say that this is the time to learn how to balance it all in a productive, healthy way.
