Articulation Agreements

articulation

A global medical community starts here

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.
