Premedical requirements for admission into the 4-year MD degree program normally include University or College-level courses as follows or “A” Level GCE/CAPE work in 3 science subjects:
Students with A or CAPE level work may require an additional semester of science education in Organic Chemistry or Anatomy.
Health professionals with clinical practice experience are encouraged to apply.
Students with 90 credits of University or College-level undergraduate coursework with fulfilled AUIS pre-medical prerequisites (for details see AUIS catalog 2018-19) may be accepted directly into the 4-Year MD program without the Pre-Medical Year requirement.
|COURSE||SEMESTER CREDIT||QUARTER CREDIT|
|General Biology I w/Lab||4||6|
|General Biology II w/Lab||4||6|
|Physics I w/Lab||4||6|
|Physics II w/Lab||4||6|
|Organic Chemistry I w/Lab||4||6|
|Organic Chemistry II w/Lab||4||6|

|College Math (Any)||3||4.5|
Applicants who do not possess the premedical prerequisites for admission into the 4-Year MD degree program highlighted above are encouraged to apply for admission into the 5-Year MD degree program of American University of Integrative Sciences School of Medicine. Such applicants must possess college science coursework, a high school or secondary school diploma or certificate with high marks and credits in science subjects (i.e., chemistry, biology, and physics), mathematics or calculus, and English.
International applicants looking at our 5-year program, we look for:
AUIS looks for a minimum of 5 subjects passed, with preference given for students with 6 or more. Depending on your educational background, AUIS makes has a flexible initial 2 years of study for a student to accelerate or decelerate the pace of study.
All AUIS students are required to maintain adequate health insurance coverage that extends throughout Semesters 1-4 of Basic Sciences in Barbados and during the FCM course and Clinical Clerkships (MD Years 3-4) in the United States without interruption.
Barbados – Students who pay the Basic Sciences tuition receive free evacuation insurance in the event a student must be flown off the island for treatment. This coverage lasts for each semester the student is in and expires at the end of the month during their last semester on the island. Foreign country health insurance coverage for major sickness and accidents is the responsibility of the student.
United States – Students are required to maintain US health insurance with coverage during the Fundamentals of Clinical Medicine and Advanced Clinical Medicine Programs; and all Clinical Clerkships.
No students may start the Basic Science program or register for Clinical Clerkships until proof of health insurance has been submitted.
