AUIS School of Medicine has assembled a highly talented academic team of varying experiences with a focus on integrity and classroom teaching experience. All AUIS faculty hold MD's, PhD's or both and have extensive research or clinical experience that they use to enhance the value of classroom dialogue and learning. Our professors love to teach and thanks to our very small class sizes, they have time to ensure each student receives the focus and support needed to thrive in medical school.
AUIS maintains a small number of apartments in an upscale complex on the private AUIS bus route for students to use as they get acquainted with the island. The Campus office also maintains relationships with local real estate agents and will gladly connect applicants with local professionals to ease the transition apartment search. Barbados has a range of options starting from $400 USD per month in rent.
The AUIS Transportation system is designed with the convenience of students in mind and provides a basic support for students choosing not to purchase or lease their own vehicle on Barbados. With multiple trips to and from the University Campus daily, Airport transfers, as well as Saturday trips to the mall and stores, the AUIS bus system is private and convenient. Combined with Barbados's public and private bus options, most students will not need a private car.

Charlton hails from the Southeastern US and attended a small university for his Bachelors degree. Among other benefits, AUIS's small class-sizes, direct access to faculty and supportive environment led him and his brother to conclude that AUIS School of Medicine was the best place for them to gain the knowledge necessary to become a great physician.
"We specifically chose AUIS because of their long history of excellent clerkship opportunities. Many classmates have recently matched. AUIS single-handedly made it possible for us both to fulfill our dreams of becoming physicians without having to sacrifice our family." (Both Jacob and Marsha passed Step I on their first attempts and achieved Residency Match on their first attempt. They received positions in the specialities they desired, at the same hospital.)
"USMLE Step 1 Preparation was in Atlanta, Ga. The instructors were knowledgeable and encouraging. The experience with standardized patients was a highlight for me and prepared me for exams in Clinical Skills. AUIS supported me throughout my educational journey and I’m happy to have Matched at the program that was my top choice.”
