1-Year Pre-Medical Program
Pre-Medical or Basic Foundation for Medical Sciences Program is a 1-Year Program which lays the foundation of the next stages of the MD Program. Pre-Medical Program is offered to students who have qualified Senior Secondary School Examinations while holders of a Bachelor of Science Degree are directly admitted to 4-Year MD Program. During the Pre-Medical Program, students go through the graduate level of medical disciples and are also given the opportunity to participate in outreach programs and go for occasional clinical visits.
2-Year Pre-Clinical Program
Pre-Clinical or Basic Sciences Program is a 2-Year Program which facilitates problem-based learning and development of comprehensive knowledge of various medical domains. This is the phase when students build a theoretical base required for clinical experiences and medical practice and spend most of their time in research labs.
2-Year Clinical Sciences Program
Clinical Rotations Program is the final phase of the Program for MD in Barbados during which students spend much of their time in hospitals and learn through observation and working under expert guidance. Going on patient rounds, treating patients under guidance and being a part of operation teams are some of the exciting and most fruitful experiences provided by clinical rotations.
After completion of MD in Barbados and medical graduation from Bridgetown International University, students are free to go for higher medical education, clear the country-specific licensing examination and start practice at a place of their choice.
