What To Expect

Our 4-year medical program has been developed for individuals who hold a bachelor’s degree and starts with a small group, case-based, clinical problem-solving curriculum on an impressive, 33-acre, resource-rich ACSOM campus on the Commonwealth of Dominica, former British dependency till 1978 ending centuries of British rule. After just two years of hands-on case based study with your peers you will have two years of clinical rotations at our Los Angeles teaching hospitals. Taking a modern approach to education, instruction is delivered through practice and problem solving rather than lecture. Small group sessions will typically never involve more than 10 students to one faculty member, and clinical training offers an even more intimate experience with about 2-4 students to every physician. Students are provided with the necessary support to ensure success in North American licensing exams and receive placement in accredited residency opportunities throughout the US, Canada, and Dominica.
