ECFMG|FAIMER We understand that schools may need to make certain temporary accommodations or other changes to your programs. ECFMG|FAIMER policy, a medical school must have a physical campus and conduct its main educational operations in the country where it is recognized. However, in light of the unique circumstances brought about by COVID-19, conducting distance learning classes temporarily will not negatively impact the eligibility of current students for ECFMG Certification.

Please note the following.
To all students attending under the Merit Scholarship.
The Merit scholarship will continue to be offered to all incoming and current students during Summer 2020.
Some students currently receiving the scholarship may fail to maintain the minimum GPA required to maintain the award. Given the added stress and emotional demands caused by changes to the AUIS academic program; principally attributable to the global COVID-19 threat impacting Barbados, AUIS school has elected to suspend the minimum Merit Scholarship GPA requirement for the Summer 2020 semester. Students offered the Merit scholarship in the Winter 2020 semester will continue to hold the scholarship in the Summer 2020 semester while they restore their GPA to the minimum maintenance threshold.
Students who fail to restore their GPA will lose their Merit scholarship for Fall 2020.
Students who withdraw from the program will be obligated to pay the full, non-scholarship tuition rate for all semesters completed during Basic Sciences.
Students in the Basic Sciences program repeating previously attempted course(s) during Summer 2020 will receive a COVID-19 tuition concession for the semester on a case by case basis. The change will be reflected in their updated invoices at the end of the current semester. Students may contact the bursar’s office to discuss the options available to them.
AUIS will not offer Library assistant positions for the Summer 2020 semester.
All TA positions will continue to be offered at standard rates of compensation. Eligible students may apply to Campus Registrar beginning April 15th, 2020 until May 12th, 2020, by writing to email@example.com. TAs will receive up to a maximum of USD$ 300 tuition credit each semester for their services.
