Attending medical school in Aruba can be an excellent way to achieve your goals of becoming a doctor in the United States or Canada. Accelerated Career Institute (ACI) can help you get there.
How can ACI help you attend medical school in Aruba?
ACI, located in Burnaby, British Columbia, has developed a partnership with Xavier University School of Medicine (XUSOM) in Aruba, to help more Canadian students become doctors. ACI’s Health Sciences diploma program provides the pre-medicine coursework you need to qualify to attend XUSOM.
Once you have successfully completed the coursework at ACI, you will be approved to enter the medical program at XUSOM with no MCAT required.
XUSOM students from Canada can qualify for Canadian provincial student loans, such as OSAP.
Where is XUSOM located?
XUSOM is located in the capital city of Aruba, Oranjestad. This is convenient for students, because it can be accessed by direct flight. The campus has the modern amenities you require as a student, including security, wireless, and air conditioning.
Aruba has a pleasant dry and sunny climate with white sand beaches. Although your program will be intensive, you may find time for walking, jogging, biking, and sightseeing. Food and lodging in Oranjestad can be found in the range of $900 to $1,200. However, you can save money by finding a roommate.
What is the program at XUSOM like?
XUSOM is a fully accredited medical school in Aruba providing a four-year curriculum. The first two years you will spend in Aruba completing the basic science coursework. The types of learning you will be exposed to include:
- Laboratory work
- Small group discussion
- Computer-assisted learning
You will spend the last two years completing clerkships in hospitals in the United States.
Once you complete your studies, you will be qualified to practice medicine in Canada or the USA.
Why attend medical school in Aruba?
Medical school in Aruba is based on the North American standard, which is why it is a popular destination for Canadian students.
Every year hundreds of qualified Canadian students are turned away from Canadian medical schools due to a limited number of spots. Accelerated Career Institute, in partnership with XUSOM, gives qualified students an opportunity to achieve their goal of becoming a medical doctor.
