This is a list of medical schools in the Caribbean. Schools are listed in alphabetical order by country/territory, then name. The list includes medical schools recognized by their local governments that award the Doctor of Medicine (MD) and/or Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) degrees.

All recognized medical schools are listed in the FAIMER International Medical Education Directory (IMED) and/or the Avicenna Directory for medicine. Several agencies may also accredit Caribbean medical schools, as listed in the FAIMER Directory of Organizations that Recognize/Accredit Medical Schools (DORA).[1]

Caribbean medical schools can be categorized as either regional or offshore. Regional medical schools train students to practice in the country or region where the school is located. Offshore medical schools in the Caribbean primarily train students from the United States and Canada who intend to return home for residency and clinical practice after graduation.[2] Most offshore schools are dual-campus programs, where basic sciences are completed in the Caribbean while clinical clerkships are completed at teaching hospitals in the United States.[3]

As of 2011 there are 60 medical schools in the Caribbean, 29 of which are regional, 31 of which are offshore.
