AUA MD PROGRAM
The MD program consists of two components: Basic Sciences, taught at AUA’s high-tech campus in Antigua, and Clinical Sciences, which consists of core and elective rotations that allow students to apply their Basic Sciences knowledge to real-world situations at affiliate teaching hospitals throughout the United States, Canada, and India.
A Basic Sciences Integration Course (BSIC) taught during 5th semester prepares students for the USMLE Step 1, which must be passed before proceeding to Clinical Sciences.
For many Caribbean medical schools, it takes over a decade to receive these recognitions, but AUA’s dedication to upholding the highest academic standards has not gone unnoticed by government jurisdictions, external agencies, and international accrediting bodies. In record time, the university has become one of the few to obtain prestigious accreditations that were earned after comprehensive evaluations confirmed the extraordinary quality of AUA’s facilities, curriculum, resources, faculty, administration, and student body. As a result of these recognitions and upon passing the necessary licensure exams, AUA graduates are eligible for residency and licensure throughout India, the United States, the United Kingdom and Canada. These recognitions also allow students to participate in clinical rotations there as well.
