Students will be eligible to take Step 1 of the USMLE (United States Medical Licensing Examination) on completion of the basic science portion. Students complete Step 2 of USMLE (CK and CS) towards the end of the 2nd half of the course, 72 weeks of clinical rotations.

Students are awarded with an MD degree (Equal to MBBS in India) on successful completion of the course.

“Graduates who have completed USMLE step 2 are widely accepted to do residency (PG) in Hospitals in the United States”

As general information, 24,000 – 26,000 residency positions are available in American Hospitals, every year.

 

Overview and Course Description Basic Sciences:

The curriculum for the Faculty of Medicine MD Program consists of two main components: the Basic Sciences Program and the Clinical Medicine Program.

The curriculum is derived mainly from the American medical education system, integrated with certain European elements of studying medicine. Students at AIMU must be motivated and focused, given that the curriculum is year-round with a minimum number of breaks. The Basic Sciences Program consists of five (5) semesters of 16 weeks each and is taught at the St.Lucia campus.

MD 5 is taught either at St.Lucia campus or US campus. The Clinical Program consists of six (6) semesters of 12 weeks each and is conducted either on St.Lucia or in the United States.

AIMU promotes hands-on experience and exposure to patient care throughout the MD program. The availability of Hospitals and Clinics in St. Lucia allows such integration to be possible.

Students are encouraged to use their knowledge and skills creatively, whether it concerns the human body in health or disease. The prevention of disease and the promotion of good health are considered important aspects in educating a well-rounded physician.

AIMU believes that a solid science foundation is essential for any Physician. This foundation is laid in the Basic Sciences Program. Students are required to complete about 140 credit hours of course work in five (5) semesters of 16 weeks. These semesters are numbered MD-1 through MD-5. This program is substantially more comprehensive than many other Caribbean medical programs because it integrates the European element of clinical exposure.

The Basic Sciences Program courses are presented in lecture format combined with laboratory exposure to allow for visual reinforcement and development of analytical skills. Because AIMU requires students to pass the NBME Step I before proceeding with the Clinical Medicine Program, the strong preparation provided by the Basic Sciences Program supports the student in achieving this important milestone.
