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.
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
AUA offers two unique programs conducted in collaboration with its one-of-a-kind partnership with Florida International University (FIU): the Global Health Track and the Graduate Clinical Core Rotation Certificate Program.
