“I did my undergrad at Arizona State University and graduated with a BS in Biological Sciences with a concentration in Genetics, Cell and Developmental Biology. I have wanted to be a physician since as long as I can remember.”
“My love affair with medicine dates back as far as I can remember. So for me, attending a school that could boast the academic resources I need; and also, be located in the Caribbean was a no brainer”
“I am a new transfer student attending Washington University Health and Sciences in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, Belize. The curriculum taught is generations ahead of the other school I attended and the cost is half the price. The professors are great (and actual doctors…unlike the other school I just transferred from). There is also the public health clinic here on the Island that we can volunteer/shadow at whenever we like. They have a great new building (with a/c) and all the equipment is cutting edge. Transferring to Washington University of Health and Science (Belize) is the best decision I have ever made. They also have clinical rotations in the states with certain contracted hospitals. I absolutely love it.”
“Washington University of Health and Science (Belize) through its US Hospital affiliations guaranteed me a premiere class clinical clerkship experience with world class preceptors within the Emory Healthcare System. I have been privileged to train under quality physicians where I have gained incredible surgical experience and had the opportunity to observe a wide variety of surgical procedures that have equipped me well for residency.”
“Washington University of Health and Science (Belize) gives me a great opportunity to continue my education and keep moving forward!”
