    In short, yes. Do pre-med at domestic school and consider going to med school in the caribbean. You will need good spanish to do clinical portions.

    Depends, if you can speak Spanish, and read and write it, you can, either at PUCMM or Utesa..

    Hi All
    I have a couple of questions. I'm thinking about studying medicine in DR. I'm interested to PUCMM and I want to start in January 2012. I'm 29 year old and I don't speak spanish but a few English, sometimes I think I'm too old for Medical school. cause it take too long 5.5 so I will have almost 36. But despite everything I don't want abandon my DREAMS. Basically, I'd really appreciate some unbiased advice. Thanks.

    you don't speak spanish and only "few" english. maybe you will be better off starting med school wherever you come from or at least in a country where you know the language?
    i know that some countries do limit the age of day time students so your choice may be a narrow one. and in many countries you will pay dearly to study as a foreigner too.
    also, i most places medical studies will take 6 years to finish and about 4 more before you even become a doctor. so if i were you i would do a little bit more research than watching grey's anatomy and house.

    I've seen advertisements here in Miami which says become an MD in UCE which is in San Pedro in less than 6 years. The advertisements are in English. Do they teach in English over there? If they don't why would they advertise in English here in Miami?

    As far as age is concerned don't let that get you down. You are very young. I've met MD residents in their 40's and 50's. There are NOT many around of course with the bulk being in the typical age range. Here though in the states they view those at that age as being more mature and ready for the rigors of medical school and residency. So forget the age thing but do find about UCE. I believe they teach in English but I may be wrong.
