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.

After the first 80 weeks of pre-clinical studies, students spend the second 80 weeks of their medical study program in clinical facilities, often called “rotations” or “clerkships”.

By working under close supervision with experts, students learn to treat patients and to acquire the skills of communications, interviewing, history taking, physical examination and medical procedures. This is accomplished in hospital and clinic based models.

Rotations are broken down into two sequential components: 48 weeks of prescribed core rotations and 32 weeks of elective rotations.... [-]
