To do an elective at one of the hospitals that are affiliated with the University of the West Indies (Antigua, Dominica, St Vincent, St Lucia, Grenada, Martinique, Jamaica, Guadeloupe, St Joseph, St Martin and Barbados) you can write directly to the University. However, to give yourself a head start, write to where you want to go first and then (if they require it) write to the University stating that you have been offered an elective placement. The University of the West Indies itself is based on three campuses – Cave Hill (Barbados - www.uwichill.edu.bb), Mona (Jamaica - www.uwimona.edu.jm) and St Augustine (Trinidad - www.uwi.tt). 

The eastern Caribbean states (St Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines, and St Christopher and Nevis) are part of the Commonwealth. Most information is below but if you need more details contact the High Commission for Eastern Caribbean States, 10 Kensington Court, London W8 5DL (Tel: +44 20 7937 9522 Fax: (0)20 7937 5514) or the Ministry of Health: Chausee Road, Castries, St Lucia.

Note: A number of the Islands have other medical Schools – many of these are off shore American Medical Schools that have preclinical components on the island and clinical components in affiliated hospitals in the US and UK. The only hospitals in the Caribbean commonly used by these students are in Kingston and Grenada.
