The first two years of the four-year MD program concentrate on the traditional basic science disciplines on our campus in Barbados. The final two years focus on clinical sciences, with training at AUIS’s affiliated hospitals and clinical centers in the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada.
Faculty hail from top universities in the US, Canada, Russia and India and many hold both PhD’s and MD’s in their field of focus.
This is a traditional North American MD with some optional integrative medicine electives available in both the clinical and basic sciences phase of education. Integrative medicine has a focus on preventative medicine and treating the root cause of disease, key components of practicing medicine successfully.
The goals of AUIS’s MD program are high USMLE Step score results and Medical Residency acceptance for AUIS graduates on their first attempt.
