Xavier University School of Medicine Aruba is proud to announce that we have received full accreditation from the Accreditation Commission on Colleges of Medicine (ACCM) Ireland!

ACCM an internationally recognized accrediting body which follows the Liaison Committee of Medical Education’s (LCME) Standards for Accreditation. ACCM is approved by the National Committee on Foreign Medical Education and Accreditation (NCFMEA). The NCFMEA is entitled by the US Department of Education to review written and applied accreditation standards for medical schools outside of North America.

ACCM is also recognized by the World Federation for Medical Education (WFME), which means it meets the Educational Commission on Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG)’s requirements for an internationally recognized medical accrediting agency.

This accomplishment would not be possible without all the hard work from our dedicated faculty and staff and our exceptional students who continue to strive to be the best student doctors they can be!
