Medicine is not static. Every day new research uncovers a greater understanding of anatomical functions, diseases, and treatments. That’s why American University of Antigua (AUA) College of Medicine provides its students with more than just essential medical knowledge: it teaches them to be lifelong learners. We take the material out of the lecture hall to create a fully immersive learning experience.

Basic Sciences lasts four semesters at our state-of-the-art campus in Antigua. Classes are enhanced with the latest educational technology, including Blackboard Learn™ and Echo360 Lecture Capture, allowing students to experience lectures long after they’re over. Students are provided with early hands-on clinical training at Mount St. John’s Medical Centre, one of the most modern hospitals in the Caribbean, and at our on-campus simulation center and high-tech labs, such as the clinical skills and anatomy labs.

The availability of these extensive campus resources gives students every opportunity to excel in medical school. Our courses provide an innovative approach to teaching the essentials of medicine.
