St. Martinus University (SMU) was established on the beautiful island of Curacao in 2001. Located outside the hurricane belt, Curacao is one of the safest islands in the Caribbean. Every year, SMU welcomes students from all over the world who share one main commonality, a passion for medicine. SMU’s new Systemic Curriculum, along with its esteemed faculty, are there to prepare you for success on your USMLE Examinations and your future as a Doctor.
SMU offers a 1-year Pre-Med Program and a 4-year MD Program. The first two (2) years of Basic Science will be at our campus in Curacao. The second two (2) years of Clinical Rotations will be at Pontiac General Hospital, SMU’s very own hospital in Michigan. This makes us the only Caribbean Medical School with their own private hospital in the US.
