On March 2nd as a tradition of our medical school, the white coat ceremony was held for new students organized by the school's administration along with the Student Government Association at the Curacao Renaissance Hotel & Casino.
The white coat ceremony (WCC) is a relatively new ritual in some medical schools that marks the student's entrance into clinical medical education. At some schools, like CMU, where students begin meeting patients early in their education, the white coat ceremony is held at the beginning of the first year.
WCC typically addresses the issue of medical ethics and praises rising incoming first year students for their admission into the medical profession. A reading of the Hippocratic Oath is a part of the ceremony and student's family and friends usually attend the event as well. Our school organizes a WCC every semester and many students now consider it a rite of passage in the journey toward a medical career.
We are happy to announce our new Edmed Loan Program. EdMed is offered by SouthEast Bank, a Tennessee based bank headquartered in East Tennessee.
We are currently processing admission applications for the upcoming Summer '18 term. Applications may be submitted online or by mail. The application deadline is December 8th.
Our latest USMLE Performance Data for 1st-time test takers shows that our pass rate is in the top 5 among all Caribbean medical schools.
Faculty members along with the school's administration will welcome new students and provide on-site assistance after the first few days in Curacao. Orientation is scheduled for May 14th at 9.00 am.
We have created the CMU Photo Gallery containing several albums with several photographs of school facilities, campus amenities, classrooms & labs, students, events, dormitories and the island of Curacao.
