    33. 33. Source: Value MD The education I received at IAU has laid a great foundation for my future. The curriculum and teaching style contributed to my success on my board exams and also prepared me for the hospital wards. Jawad Salim Gettysburg, Pennsylvania Class of 2011 Ever since the first day I joined IAU, I have become a part of a family abroad. I still remember landing on the island and how welcoming and helpful everyone was. From that day on, I knew that I had made the right decision of choosing IAU. The class sizes were just right; for the first time, professors actually knew my name and cared about my education. The education I received made studying for the USMLE exams a breeze as all of the material had already been covered so there were no surprises. I look forward to moving ahead and completing this journey, making my new family proud after all that they have done for me. :)" Natasha Suleman Toronto, Canada Class of 2013 Every professor knows me by name. They use that knowledge to personally help me academically. Trevor Cook Point Comfort, Texas Class of 2013 TESTIMONIALS
