Program Description

Pre-Med Course

The faculty at IAU developed a unique program that provides the foundational learning necessary before entering the MD program. Our Pre-Med program features highly individualized instruction in courses that are required prerequisites for admission to the College of Medicine’s MD program. Enrollment in the Pre-Med program will better prepare students for success in the IAU College of Medicine. This also provides pre-medical students with the opportunity to become familiar with the campus, faculty, learning resources, and island life before beginning the more challenging MD curriculum. In addition, pre-medical students interact with successful medical students in the basic sciences, who provide supplemental instruction in premedical prerequisites and who also serve as lab assistants, peer advisors, and tutors. Students presenting secondary school for Advanced Level (A levels) or International Baccalaureate (IB) credentials will be placed into the Pre-Med program based on their academic backgrounds. Evaluation of prior educational background will determine eligibility and appropriate placement for admission.
