Doctor of Medicine in Basic Sciences

At International American University College of Medicine, we take a more progressive approach to medical education that reflects the best medical schools in the United States. At traditional medical schools, most students aren't exposed to hands-on case studies till their third year. At IAU, our students are immediately exposed to a case-based, problem-oriented curriculum (“problem-based learning”, or PBL), which places far more emphasis on learning that is active (researching, discussing) rather than passive (sitting, memorizing). This approach builds a students’ confidence in their own presentation skills early in their education: an important skill set to have when presenting their cases to a room full of medical doctors. By submitting this form, I am giving express written consent for International American University and its representatives to contact me regarding educational programs and services using email, telephone calls or text messages - including through the use of automated dialing technology for calls or texts to any wireless or landline number I provide.
