About Xusom

“Cultivating Great Minds for Primary Care Medicine”


Xavier University School of Medicine (XUSOM) was founded in 2004 and is chartered by the government of Aruba with authorization by the Ministry of Education of Aruba. Located outside of the hurricane belt, Aruba provides students with a safe and secure atmosphere to study the fascinating field of medicine. The Xavier campus sits in Oranjestad, the largest city in Aruba.

Our system-based courses are taught by distinguished doctors from the U.S. who are committed to teaching. Academics are the number 1 priority for our students, and Xavier provides a positive environment for students to expand their knowledge and gain the most from their education.


The medical field is one unlike any other, and Xavier can help you succeed in your future career. The beautiful campus in Oranjestad provides a serene environment for students to study, while clinical rotations in the United States allow students to be competitive candidates for future residencies. However, these are only two of the many reasons to choose Xavier.

Our Campus

The campus itself is a newly renovated, modern facility comprised of over 125,000 square feet. The entire facility has central air conditioning and is equipped with wireless technology throughout. Students are guaranteed secure access to the campus at all times, as Xavier has security officers on site 24/7. The campus encompasses a vibrant multicultural atmosphere where all students feel accepted and comfortable.

Articulation Agreements

These partnerships between Xavier and other four-year universities give students an opportunity to smoothly transition between their undergraduate education to medical school.
