American University of Antigua College of Medicine (AUA) was established to provide an opportunity to pursue a medical education that is acceptable for licensure throughout the United States. Our curriculum, modeled after leading US medical school curricula, focuses on making medical education more personalized, keeping classes small, and creating academic partnerships between students and faculty that encourage them to challenge and support each other.

The MD program consists of two components: Preclinical Sciences and Clinical Sciences.

Preclinical sciences

Explore the Preclinical Sciences component of AUA’s curriculum.

AUA follows an organ system-based, entirely integrated curriculum that focuses on active learning formats, primarily in small-group settings—an approach that has been developed and delivered in many United States medical schools. This type of curricular approach addresses the need for medical students to develop critical thinking skills that will assist them both in the practice of medicine and in performing well on licensing examinations.

Clinical sciences

Learn more about the Clinical Sciences.

During the clinical education in academic years 3 and 4, students continue to develop clinical and communication skills in AUA’s affiliated teaching hospitals in all areas of patient care.

The clinical education consists of 84 weeks of clinical rotations.

Florida International University Collaboration

American University of Antigua College of Medicine (AUACOM) offers unique educational programs conducted in collaboration with Florida International University’s (FIU) Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine (HWCOM) and Robert Stempel College of Public Health and Social Work: Global Health Track (GHT)*, Graduate Clinical Core Rotation Certificate Program, Elective Clinical Rotation Program, and Master of Public Health (MPH) Program.

Find out how these programs can help enhance your medical education and career in healthcare.

*There is no fee or tuition for participating in the GHT; as the program is not part of AUA’s medical doctorate program, federal financial aid is not available for the living expenses of students during GHT sessions. Participation in GHT is strictly voluntary.
