Jamaica has 4 residency places. They also have a 5 month externship program. 3 of the 4 places are given as prematches to people who successfully complete their externship program.

RE: The remaining 1 spot. They screen ERAS applicants and invite selcted applicants to take a written test. The highest scorers get real invitations and battle for that remaining spot.

Invitations for the written test were sent out yesterday.

Below are 2 Qs from their FAQs they sent me: For the complete list of FAQs see: https://www.prep4usmle.com/forum/thread/41671[/url][/u]

3. Do we have minimum score criteria on the USMLE? Do we consider applicants who have more than one attempt?

We review all applications. There are no minimum requirements. USMLE results are considered, as are the results of the Jamaica Hospital Medical Center examination that is required for all applicants.

Note: It is required that applicants sit for this examination (only offered once in October) in order to be considered for an interview.


5. Do we participate in the N.R.M.P. (National Resident Matching Plan)?

Residency positions will not be listed with the N.R.M.P. The four (4) positions will be non-match positions.
