To support our mission to provide the highest quality education, AUA has numerous articulation agreements. An articulation agreement is an official partnership between two universities, stipulating that students who have met established academic requirements are guaranteed acceptance to AUA the semester following their graduation. Some of these agreements provide AUA students with the opportunity to earn additional degrees, supplementing their MD and enhancing their residency applications.
SUPPLEMENTAL DEGREE PROGRAMS
Fast-Track to Medical School Program
AICASA has partnered with the American University of Antigua College of Medicine to offer a fast-track alternative for entry into medical school. AUA has agreed to accept AICASA graduates who complete the prescribed AS in Health Sciences curriculum and maintain a minimum cumulative GPA set by AUA. All students matriculated in the AS in Health Sciences degree-earning program are automatically enrolled in the fast-track option.
FIU College of Medicine Certificate of Completion
This is a landmark agreement that allows qualified AUA students to enroll in the FIU HWCOM Clinical Clerkship Certificate Program and complete all rotations within the Greater Miami area. AUA students who successfully complete their clinical rotations at FIU HWCOM’s affiliated teaching sites will receive an FIU transcript and a FIU Certificate of Completion.
Healthcare MBA Program
URBANA UNIVERSITY (Urbana, OH)
As competition for residencies steadily increases, students may want to consider a concurrent master’s degree to distinguish their residency applications. Urbana University has created a Healthcare MBA program specifically designed to address the growing business needs of current and aspiring medical doctors. Qualified AUA students can earn a Healthcare MBA online through Urbana. Each term has one course, which lasts approximately 12 weeks and can be completed in four terms. Title IV loans are available to cover course tuition.
