U.S. Medical University's vs. Caribbean Medical Schools

So you have just graduated high school, and  have decided to go to medical school. Now, you are on your way to take the next step in your education. Where should you go now? Avalon University School of Medicine, or better known as AUSOM,  is a medical school that is located on the island of Curacao, which is located in the Caribbean. At AUSOM, and Caribbean medical schools, students have smaller class sizes. This means that there is a better student to teacher ratio. Instead of a student having classes with a hundred, or even two hundred people,  like the U.S. university classes likely have; the student can have a better understanding of what is being taught, and speak more with the professor when they have questions.

There is a change of pace with a different location in the Caribbean. Having a different location  makes it more exciting, and more educational. Students get a chance to explore the environment around them. Students also get the opportunity to take a break and relax from the studying, and enjoy a nice day on the beautiful beaches. 

Caribbean medical schools also offer potential students lower tuition rates, and higher acceptance rates. Unlike US medical schools, Caribbean schools have lower tuition rates, and higher acceptance rates. This makes it much easier for potential students to go to a medical school, and be able to afford the tuition. Having higher acceptance rates in Caribbean schools, gives students the opportunity  to go to school, and become what they have being dreaming of becoming, a doctor.
