Additionally, they have also gone on to access residencies at some of the best hospitals in North America.

For the first five semesters of your medical training you will study on Saba Island. For semesters six to ten you will return to the U.S. for clinicals. and then place into a residency position.

Saba University has three intakes (January, May and September) per year to provide students with the flexibility to start the program at a time that suits them.
