Graduation and Residency

As a Western Atlantic University School of Medicine (WAUSM) student, the steps you take to achieve your medical degree are the same as those of US medical schools: successful completion of the Preclerkship and Clerkship curricula and clinical rotations, and passage of all three parts of the United States Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE).

Once all of these objectives have been achieved, students culminate their medical school journey by receiving their MD and begin a new, exciting chapter in their professional careers—residency!

WAUSM students have a unique advantage when it comes to applying for residency. The academic preparation needed to achieve competitive USMLE scores, a strong network of healthcare professionals who are aware of their abilities and interests, clerkship experience at a leading US hospital, and perhaps most importantly, an “charter class edge.”

What do we mean by this? Quite simply, members of WAUSM’s charter class will have had the chance to do things few medical school students have – from helping to shape curricula, to becoming the founding member of a student club or organization, to establishing health-focused initiatives within the community, and more.

For those students who have taken advantage of the limitless leadership, academic, and community opportunities afforded to them, the residency application process will be their time to shine.

Join WAUSM, and prepare to stand out.
