A classroom at AUIS BarbadosBasic Science

At AUIS, the Basic Sciences are the cornerstone to your success.

The initial two years of the MD program focus on the traditional basic science disciplines. Laboratory, clinic and community outreach experience via participation in health community projects is a primary part of these first two years. Along with that, we include small, focused group discussions designed for problem-based learning and early assimilation of the Basic Medical Sciences into the clinical experience. Formal studies are supplemented with hands-on clinical training at the local Bardados Hospital, permitting an extension of the classroom to the real-world and exposing students to applied clinical settings.

Basic Sciences incorporates a unique testing system designed to prepare students for USMLE Step 1 starting day 1. The goal of our Basic Sciences program is long term retention and application of knowledge to increasingly complex clinical situations
