Avalon University School of Medicine’s accelerated medical program is designed to prepare students to becoming well-rounded practicing physician in the United States or Canada. Our curriculum is modeled after U.S. medical schools, and the first 16 months will be focused on gaining the basic science knowledge in preparation for an exciting experience during the clinical program years. The goal of the medical program is to build the necessary medical knowledge in preparation for medical licensure and to be set up in the best position to obtaining a medical residency upon graduation.
The Fifth semester serves as a bridge between the Basic Sciences and the Clinical Sciences. This semester is 14 weeks in duration.
Students that successfully complete the basic sciences will soon after begin their clinical sciences (clinical rotations). The clinical science program is designed to give students the ability to learn and practice their clinical skills in a hospital setting. Avalon students will have the opportunity to complete the required 72 weeks of clinical rotations at our affiliated teaching hospitals across the United States. An important advantage of our clinical science program is that Avalon students will be able to complete all 72 weeks of core and elective clinical rotations at a single clinical site.Caribbean Medical School
