Best M.D.s in Doctor of Medicine in Central America and Caribbean 2017. 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”. In the clinical facilities, the students learn by ‘apprenticeship’ to specialists in the various clinical disciplines. 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. These core and elective clinical full-time rotations focus on the acquisition and maintenance of clinical and professional skills through various medical specialties in affiliated hospitals in many countries including the US, Mexico, UK, Australia and India. Students work directly with physicians and clinical staff in various care service delivery environments conducting physical examinations, history taking, case presentations and laboratory analysis. We appreciate that every country, jurisdiction and medical specialty has different requirements, therefore, we advise students to inquire and adjust their core and elective rotations to reflect those requirements. A student should also be aware that some residencies require a minimum number of clinical weeks in specialty areas in order to apply for a position with their programs. University core and elective requirements represent the minimum number of weeks which IUHS requires for students to qualify for graduation. Required Core Clerkships The first 48 weeks of prescribed core rotations are the... [-]
