Getting into medical school is no easy task. That’s because there are simply not enough seats in medical schools to meet the number of students who want to become physicians. This is especially true in Canada where there are only 17 medical schools. A typical year sees more than 30,000 applicants competing for about 2,500 places. While Saba is located on a Dutch island in the Caribbean, it actually plays a significant role in the Canadian healthcare system. In fact, well over half of Saba alumni hail from Canada and stop in at almost any major Canadian medical center and you will find Saba graduates on staff.
