    Hey

    How long is the basic science portion of the curriculum. Went to the AUC webpage but still wasnt so clear. I know its 5 semesters, so is that 2 years?

    4 months a semester.. 5 semesters=20 months

    Clinical portion is 72 weeks of clinicals.. just take it as a 4 year program altogether.

    Auc

    From the AUC website: http://www.aucmed.edu/curriculum/curriculum.htm

    "American University of the Caribbean’s medical school curriculum is comprises of 9 1/2 semesters: (5) semesters of basic medical sciences taught at the St. Maarten campus, and (4.5) semesters of clinical medical sciences taught at affiliated hospitals in the U.S., U.K., and Ireland."

    from start of time on the island until you leave..... a total of 20 months
    then clinicals are a total of 72 weeks. the time it takes to finish all that is up to you. you can push through and try to do all your rotations without any gaps and get your MD in 20 months+72 weeks. however, there are always a few gaps here and there and at least a month off for taking the usmle and receiving the results.
