Medical School For Everyone
We believe in providing the best medical training for everyone. Our programs are suitable for whatever stage in your life you find yourself. Whether you are seeking a traditional 4-year M.D. program or are looking to accelerate your path to becoming an M.D. with our pre-med program; we will work with you.
4 Year MD Program
Our 4-year M.D. program gathers medical education into 42 months of training and board review time – complete with semester breaks that don’t cut into your required graduation hours. The 4-year M.D. program consists of 19 months of basic science courses and 18 months of clinical opportunities. You are eligible for clinical rotations at an affiliated hospital in the United States after passing Step 1. Our curriculum is flexible and can accommodate all types of professional growth, including research, advanced degrees, and special clinical rotation tracks.
5 Year PreMed MD Program
Our 5-year program includes six traditional college semesters packed into four accelerated semesters of pre-medical studies. If you have the right scholastic achievements from high school, you can be accepted into this program and be on track to enter residency and graduate to practice medicine by the age of 26. This program saves time by allowing you to secure your position as a medical student without having to earn a bachelor’s or master’s degree beforehand. After you complete and graduate from our 5-year program, you are qualified for medical licensure.

Student Life at AUSOMA
At AUSOMA, we believe a student’s well-being is as important as their academic success. Here at our campus, we provide a welcoming and engaging student experience.
We want you to feel at home while you experience living in “paradise”. One of the unique aspects of the student life experience is our small class sizes, which give students a more personalized experience with faculty and their peers. Our faculty strive every day to focus on a student’s academic journey and serve as advisors to our students. Here at AUSOMA, we want you to enjoy your time and cherish the experience as you work towards your dreams of becoming a doctor.
Additionally, there are opportunities to engage in student organizations and become involved in leadership roles that will enhance your student experience as well as prepare you for the life of a physician.
Aruba is the perfect place to study and relax. With its 82-degree days and white-sand beaches, you won’t find a more beautiful campus than the one we have at AUSOMA. It’s also home to some of the friendliest people in the world, which is why it’s nicknamed, “One Happy Island”.
At AUSOMA we seek to provide easy and safe housing options for our students and are excited to launch our brand-new campus in January 2023 (pictured below). We offer leading technology and modern classrooms with laboratory facilities, and our island is quiet, safe, and gorgeous.
