Xavier University School of Medicine was thrilled to have a Ground Breaking Ceremony to inaugurate their brand new campus. Students will have state-of-the-art residential areas as a comfortable, stimulating environment in which to study to become Medical Doctors.

Xavier University School of Medicine’s 15-acre campus in Aruba will become a landmark in Aruba when completed in 2023. The residential end of campus just opened its brand new doors to students in the Fall 2021 semester, thanks to Jagadeesan and Kanchana Poola and Family, humanitarians and contributors of a 7-figure sum to XUSOM. In gratitude, the new residential housing block was named after the Poolas, and was inaugurated by Aruba’s Prime Minister at the Ribbon Cutting ceremony on August 14, 2021.

Jagadeesan ‘Jack’ Poola has seen how Ravishankar Bhooplapur, President, has led the growth of the school over the last 10+ years to become a premier medical school in the Caribbean with all the top accreditations, going toe-to-toe with U.S. medical schools. When looking at Mr. Poola’s profile of lifetime philanthropic work, it is clear that his favorite charities have been healthcare- and education-related. He stated that he saw a need to support young students of diverse ethnicities at Xavier who comes from all over the world. The new campus at XUSOM will certainly provide students with a productive and happy environment in which to study and grow.
