"Improving Life by Degrees"

Providing quality, affordable medical and veterinary education focused on the success of our students is the foundation of St. Matthew's University. Our faculty and staff are as committed to your dreams as you are, and our small class sizes mean you receive personalized attention.

Since 1997, more than two thousand students have obtained their MD and DVM degrees from SMU. Our graduates have earned residencies and/or permanent licensure in more than 45 states in the U.S., Canada, and numerous other countries. Our students achieve exceptional scholastic success, with U.S. licensing examination pass rates comparable to U.S. schools and well above the average of other non-U.S. schools.

SMU is located on the beautiful and safe Caribbean island, Grand Cayman. The island offers a highly developed infrastructure, including three state-of-the-art hospitals, hundreds of restaurants, world class hotels, and a thriving tourist industry. Grand Cayman is an hour’s flight from Miami, and has direct flights from many U.S. and Canadian cities.
