All About Dominica

“Dominica is a great place to study”

All About ‘The Nature Island of the Caribbean

Dominica (pronounced “Dom-in-eek-a”) is an island of volcanic origins located between the French islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique in the Eastern Caribbean, at approximately 15 degrees North latitude and 61 degrees West longitude.It is the largest and most mountainous of the the Windward Islands, with an area of 289.5 sq. miles (754 sq. km). It is 29 miles long and 16 miles at its widest. The formal name Commonwealth of Dominica is often used to avoid confusing it with the Dominican Republic.

Dominica’s population is around 71,727 (2003), of which 20,000 live around the capital city, Roseau (pronounced ‘Ro-zo’), which is located on the south-west coast. English is the official language but a French-based Creole (kwéyòl) is widely spoken, especially in outlying villages.

Visitors should bear in mind that the import and export of fruit, vegetables and flowers is restricted; you will need to obtain a license to take out flowers, for example.

From the lush mountain peaks rising to almost 5,000 ft. to the underwater volcanic craters with dramatic vertical walls, it’s no wonder Dominica will take your breath away at every turn. Dominica is one of the best places in the Caribbean to dive, whale and dolphin watch, hike, bird watch, explore a pristine rainforest, or simply relax.

Dominica is known as the “Nature Island” of the Caribbean. It was also chosen as the location for the filming of the major box office hit movie “Pirates of the Caribbean”. In Dominica, you will experience the world as it was meant to be – unspoiled and with natural wonders found nowhere else in the world. Dominica is a leading dolphin and whale watching hotspot.

If sitting by the beach all day sounds a bit dull, then Dominica is the spot for you. Dominica is a paradise for the outdoor adventurer interested in unspoiled natural attractions. There is so much to do! Dominica’s Morne Trois Pitons National Park was the first UNESCO World Heritage Site in the eastern Caribbean.

Electricity is 220/240 volts, 50 cycles.
Water is safe to drink.
Public Transport is readily available in the form of the ubiquitous mini-bus (look for number plates that begin with ‘H’); the Old Market in Roseau is the ‘terminus’ for busses travelling south; the West Bridge for those travelling north. Fares are set by the government.

The Humble Beginning of All Saints University

All Saints University was founded by a group of dedicated medical and business professionals, all of whom had over 20 years of experience in medical education. The University opened its doors to 28 new students in April 2006 to provide students a better approach to educating the next generation of physicians at affordable fees. With its current population of about 700 medical students and over 100 graduates at various stages of their postgraduate or residency training, the university has been able to establish itself as a medical school to reckon with. Today the university boasts of 2 campuses in Dominica and St. Vincent and the Grenadines.  With hundreds of students on the campuses and several hundreds more in clinical clerkships throughout the United States, Canada and around the world, All Saints University is the medical school to go and will surely provide you with the tools and company you need to succeed in your medical career.
