Many of our prospective students planning on going to a Caribbean medical university are concerned about entering clinical rotations in the US and passing the United States Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE). Here at Xavier University School of Medicine, our MD parallel curriculum helps our graduates pass the USMLE. Our US and Canadian medical programs help them match more readily to US, Canadian, and Indian hospitals for their residency. The parallel curriculum of our medical/Pre-Med school is specialized to be nearly identical to the medical schools of the United States and Canada. The student will typically undergo instruction for the first few years at the campus in Aruba, then perform their residency at a US, Canadian, or Indian hospital of their choice.
