International American University is one of the finest Universities among the Caribbean Islands and is slightly expensive than Spartan. IAU supports a high quality education for USMLE 1 preparation as well as smooth transition for US based hospitals for clinical rotation and Residency. It is yet to get the CAAM-HP accreditation but the university has extremely good quality of education and great penetration in US medical system. Both the Universities is just 10 minutes away from each other. The current affiliation within USA is at John Hopkins School of Medicine (http://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/som/)  which is considered to be one of the best 2 years internship (Clinical Rotation) possible within USA. The USMLE-1 results from this university are almost the best among all. Around 65% of the students are able to get the Residency in USA successfully meaning they are able to practice over there with no less than US$ 300,000 per year salary!

Currently, more than 60 Indian students from different parts of India are placed by us studying at this university with aim to do MBBS in USA. We can connect you with them or connect your parents with their parents for transparent understanding and your clarity on roadmap to your MBBS in USA program.

The University is approved by WHO, USMLE, FAIMER and is highly reputed among others. IAU does not yet have a CAAM-HP approval which allows you to work on any of the Caribbean Islands on completion of the MD program. However, the government of St. Lucia has approved the course and the university due to which if you happen to return to India after Bachelor, you are in a position to give  MCI screening Test. However, once you get the residency in USA, in any case, you are not required to give the MCI Screening Test. International American University has already got the letter of recommendation from the New York education department which is definitely one of the biggest achievements. It means that once the letter has been legalized, the student can directly go for the Residency in  hospitals in New York.
