Dear Student,

Welcome to information about the Mount St. John’s Medical Center (MSJMC) Internship Program. Our program is designed to facilitate the professional growth of interns who are in the process of becoming fully licensed practicing physicians. Opened in 2009 after the closure of the Holberton Hospital, Mount St. John’s Medical Center (MSJMC) has continued a long tradition of offering quality healthcare to children, families, and adults in Antigua & Barbuda and the lower Eastern Caribbean

The one year program will offer broad-based, generalist training in medicine as practiced in a modern, urban hospital center. The internship will emphasize the development of professional judgment, skills, and identity, through exposure to a wide variety of patients and treatment settings. Within this general structure, an attempt will be made to individually tailor each intern's experience in accordance with his or her interests and goals. A major goal of the internship is to facilitate each intern's ability to be a skilled and a resourceful evaluator and physician. The one year internship will be done in 3-month rotations in each of the following disciplines: Medicine, Surgery, Paediatrics, and Obstetrics & Gynaecology. For more information please visit
