Avalon University School of Medicine – A Caribbean Medical School

Avalon University School of Medicine is a North American curriculum based medical program designed for students who want to pursue a career in medicine in the United States, Canada, and in most countries around the world. Having a curriculum modeled after U.S. medical schools, AUSOM focuses on quality medical education and training in order to ensure medical licensure and residency placement for our graduates. AUSOM’s faculty includes professors and physicians from exceptional teaching medical schools and institutions from all over the world. AUSOM also provides highly sought after clinical rotations in U.S. teaching hospitals. AUSOM has one of the best clinical science programs, and during these clinical rotations students work directly with physicians to become familiar with hospital practices to attain the fundamental clinical knowledge. Hands-on experience provides students the opportunity and exposure to complement theoretical knowledge with patient interactions which provides a competitive edge to ensure that students are prepared for residency programs.

Rapidly becoming an international leader in medical education, AUSOM is located on the beautiful island of Curacao. Curacao is a highly developed and safe country with a supportive and pro-education government, which allows AUSOM to utilize the resources needed to conduct our medical program in a conducive, academic environment. AUSOM’s program, leadership, and success rate make it a premier choice for those pursuing a career in the medical field. AUSOM has curricula, faculty and staff members that offer the knowledge, experience and resources for a solid medical education that produces competitive graduates and well qualified doctors

AUSOM is an accredited Caribbean medical school which is listed by the International Medical Education Directory (IMED), a division of the United States Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG). IMED/ECFMG listing and endorsement ensures that Avalon University’s graduates are eligible to take the USMLE® and subsequently apply for U.S. residency programs. Additionally, AUSOM has received recognition from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Medical Council of Canada (MCC).

Being one of the few Caribbean medical schools founded and directed primarily by U.S. physicians, and by following the U.S. medical school model, AUSOM ensures that students are well equipped with an up-to-date, comprehensive, and competitive medical education. AUSOM graduates are well prepared to continue their pursuit of medicine in the U.S and around the world. The faculty at Avalon University provides a unique and modern medical education experience, while continually focusing on the preparation for licensure in North America.
