AUIS aims to be among the most affordable of the Caribbean Medical Schools. We have a rich history of Matching students in the USA and Canada since our inception in 1999. As a smaller, tight-knit school, we maintain extremely small class-sizes of under 11 students per classroom and provide robust academic support for our students throughout their education- something you will not find anywhere else in the Caribbean. Join the 800+ AUIS School of Medicine alumni practicing across the US and Canada.
