The MD Program
Our Premed Program qualifies students who do not meet any or all of the academic requirements for the MD Program at WUHS. The Premed Program consists of two-semesters coursework in each of the following:
MD1 – MD4: Foundations of Medicine
This segment of the Basic Sciences program is conducted in our School of Medicine campus, located in San Pedro, Belize. The duration of the study is approximately 16 months.

After completing the Foundations of Medicine portion, students are eligible to study for a single semester in the United States, in preparation for their upcoming clinical training. This segment introduces students to Clinical Medicine in addition to Physical Diagnosis. A USMLE Review is also given in this semester.
After passing our Basic Sciences program, students are eligible to enter clinical clerkships, in rotation, in several specific fields. There is a total of 72 weeks of required clinical core clerkships and electives. All clinical training is conducted in our affiliate hospitals in the United States.
