Avalon University School of Medicine

About Avalon University School of Medicine

Avalon University School of Medicine (AUSOM) is a growing leader in medical education. Avalon University School of Medicine (AUSOM) focuses on quality medical education and training in order to ensure medical licensure and residency placement for international medical students and graduates. Avalon University provides students the opportunity to achieve a rewarding career in the field of medicine. Rapidly becoming an international leader in medical education, Avalon University School of Medicine is situated on Curacao; which is a highly developed and safe country with a supportive and pro-education government.  Avalon University offers programs in Pre-Medicine, Doctor of Medicine and Clinical Sciences. Avalon University's curriculum is designed to prepare medical students for the United States Medical Licensing Exam® (USMLE) exams. As a promising international leader in medical education, AUSOM's program, leadership, and success rate make it a premier choice for those pursuing a career in the medical field.

AUSOM is a U.S. based medical program designed for students who want to pursue a career in medicine in the United States.  Our attractive low student / teacher ratio allows for personalized instruction  rarely found in other medical school programs. AUSOM's faculty includes esteemed professors and physicians from top teaching medicals school and institutions from all over the world.  Avalon University also provides highly sought after clinical rotations in U.S. teaching hospitals.  It is during these clinical rotations students work directly with physicians and hospital staff to become familiar with hospital practices and settings.  Students become comfortable in taking histories and conducting physical examinations, case presentations, laboratory analysis, and attending workshops, conferences and grand rounds.  Hands-on experience provides students the opportunity to complement theoretical knowledge with live patient presentations.  The clinical medicine program at AUSOM provides a competitive edge to ensure that students are prepared for residency programs.

AUSOM is one of the first Caribbean medical schools to incorporate the most cutting edge technology available in medical school instruction: plastinated human organs. These specimens are actual human organs which are preserved through a process called plastination. This process increases specimen durability, allowing students to accurately study anatomical concepts without exposure to toxic chemicals.

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.
