Founded in 2003, Avalon University School of Medicine (AUSOM) is a private medical school located on the Caribbean island of Curacao. It is chartered and recognized by the Government of Curacao, and the charter entitles AUSOM to grant the Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) degree to students who have successfully completed the medical school’s curricular requirements. As an accredited medical school, AUSOM adopts a North American curriculum-based medical program and the graduates are geared for medical practice in the United States and Canada. AUSOM has taken all necessary steps to ensure that its graduates are eligible for the United States and Canadian medical licensure, as its academic team and curriculum focus on the success of its student body. While the emphasis is on student academic success, the administration also focuses on students’ personal needs to make sure both students and parents are comfortable and at ease.

Areas of Expertise

The island of Curacao is one of the most developed and modern islands in the Caribbean, which allows AUSOM to operate the medical program in an up-to-date and conducive environment for the students, faculty members, and administration. AUSOM takes great pride in making sure that all students are pointed in the right direction to succeed, and our small class sizes allows AUSOM to provide one-on-one attention from the teachers, and more personalized education. Our faculty members provide the leadership needed for a healthy and exciting learning environment, with the goal to mold all students into well-rounded physicians who exhibit the compassion, integrity, and honesty which are essential for medical practice and to serve humanity.
