Our preclerkship campus location plays a prominent role in the WAUSM student experience. A vibrant and culturally diverse city, Freeport offers students real-world opportunities to make an impact from the onset of their medical school careers.
The “student experience” in medical school is of paramount importance, both to your success as a student, and beyond as a practitioner. Succeeding in medical school, planning for your future as a MD, and transitioning into residency all present new challenges, and with them, new opportunities.
At Western Atlantic University School of Medicine (WAUSM), you can expect a student experience that will empower you to choose opportunities that allow you to progress toward long-term goals, such as identifying career pathways, attaining confidence on your own competencies, exploring diverse practice settings, and pursuing personal interests.
With a focus on “the whole student,” the WAUSM student experience is built upon:
- Career and Professional Development
- WAUSM Learning Communities
- Diversity and Inclusion
- Academic Support
- Health and Wellness
- Community Engagement
Diversity is at the heart of WAUSM. We believe that a diverse, inclusive, and equitable school community is a fundamental part of preparing medical students to become MDs of the future. As a Caribbean medical school, WAUSM students have the unique advantage of experiencing, and achieving, a broadened outlook through both academic and non-academic initiatives.
Confidence is key to becoming a successful physician. By broadening your outlook, providing essential academic and personal support, and giving you diverse opportunities to hone your skillset, the WAUSM student experience will allow you to grow into a physician who is capable of taking care not only of your future patients’ health and wellbeing, but your own as well.
Having the opportunity to become a foundational member of a new medical school is not something that comes around every day, and there are many advantages. Among them – limitless leadership, academic, and community opportunities that will give you the chance to build a standout residency application, all while receiving a premium medical school education that is second to none.
