American University of Antigua (AUA) College of Medicine has a robust curriculum that corresponds to real-world needs and has almost 40 clinical sites. Our program prepares students for a successful medical career.
Consisting of semesters 5 through 8, Clinical Sciences gives students the opportunity to interact with patients and hospital administrators at teaching hospitals throughout the United States, Canada, and India. Clinical Sciences consists of core and elective rotations that allow students to apply their Basic Sciences knowledge to real-world situations.
Under the close supervision of clinical faculty, clinical students will learn to work as a team, analyze lab data, experience a physician’s typical day, diagnose patient cases, conduct physicals, and perform limited procedures, such as stitching, blood work, and vaccinations.
Students will also have the chance to make a positive impression and network with physicians and hospital administrators to improve their residency applications. By the end of Clinical Sciences, they will have a better understanding of what specialty they are most passionate about.
