A key component of IAUCOM’s clinical experience is having students visit Community Clinics (with licensed physicians) and practice the clinical skills learned in Basic Sciences. Further, students present these patients to their peers in the Initial Clinical Experience (ICE) and Advanced Clinical Experience (ACE), much as they are required to do regularly in their Clerkship rotations.  A Public health Screening Center (PHSC) is run bi-weekly to allow the health of walk-in patients (30-60) to be evaluated by medical students with faculty supervision. In this setting, senior students advise junior peers how to assess patients used the (ACE level) clinical skills they have achieved.
IAU’s American Medical Student Association (AMSA) held its first Free Student Run Clinic which saw a total of 84 patients. This not only included visits to the student run clinic but also our medical students patrolling on foot and giving back to their community.
We are very proud of our students! Not only did they gain valuable clinical experience but also give back to the Saint Lucian community.
