There's plenty of time to study! classes are staggered in way conductive for promoting a study environment. Students have access to air conditioned study centers with internet capability 24-7! The students are told well in advance when the exams will occur. Also we use actual cadeavours and supplemental materials in anatomy lab. The mosquitos are present during some rainy seasons but the island does have a truck that comes out and sprays repellent as needed. Otherwise "OFF" and other mosquito repellents are available and work very effectively. Then again it's just when it rains sometimes. and that can be rather rare. Also the school does allow students to custom tailor their schedule to an extent to better suit their needs. Several students have or are taking up to 7 or 8 semesters to complete basic sciences but doing it in 5 at MUA-B is manageable as long as you are serious about your medical education because the professors are take it seriously and do whatever it takes to help you.there are NO uniforms but a dress code is under consideration, which consists of comfortable shorts or khakis and a polo shirt or full sleeve shirt, however this may not be implemented in the near future just under consideration.A visit of 3-4 days is sufficient.Students tend to study sometimes in groups and are always helping each other out because we have a good comairade and rapport at MUA-B.
