Details about the Pre-Med Program (if available):

AAIMS offers a 4 semester (16 month) Pre Med program for High School graduates to fulfill requisites for entering into MD program. Once students complete the program successfully, they are transferred to AAIMS 4 year MD program. Students are awarded "Associate Degree in Health Sciences" after graduating from Pre Med program and Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree after graduating from 4 year MD program. This track is ideal for highly motivated graduating High School students who are committed to study medicine and are ready to begin their medical studies immediately after completing high school. It is also the path for non-traditional students who need to complete prerequisite courses before being accepted to the AAIMS MD program.

Details about the Basic Sciences:

Starts with five 16-week semesters in Jamaica and sixth semester in Jamaica/USA. These first 2 years of curriculum focuses on courses in Basic Sciences and their application to clinical medicine. Semesters begin in January, May and September, and students can begin their studies in any semester. In addition to didactic lectures, lab work and problem based learning; students make community and hospital visits, practice history taking and physical examinations with patients in Clinical Simulation Training rooms on our basic sciences campus. Upon successfully completing five semesters, students are given intensive training to pass US Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE Step 1) in our sixth semester with an option to receive this training at our Jamaica campus or USA. Students are required to PASS USMLE Step 1 to enter into third year Clinical Sciences of MD Program.

Details about the Clinical Sciences:

Clinical Sciences program will take place in years 3 and 4. In these years students will get training in the care and study of patients in Hospitals. The training comprises 96 weeks of clinical rotation in both core and elective subjects. Once required clinical rotations are completed, students are required to PASS USMLE Step 2CK and CS exams. After complete year 3 and 4, students graduate with MD degree and successfully passing USMLE Step 1, 2CK and CS graduates receive ECFMG certification that makes them eligible to participate in the Residency Matching Process in the USA.
