2014 marks American University of Antigua (AUA) College of Medicine’s 10th anniversary! In 10 years, AUA has grown from our inaugural class of nine students to become one of the top Caribbean medical schools. Here’s a short list of reasons AUA has achieved an incredible reputation in such a short time:

  1. Approved by the New York State Education Department – one of the largest healthcare markets in the United States
  2. Recognized by the Medical Board of California – one of the few Caribbean medical schools to achieve this distinction
  3. Accredited by the Caribbean Accreditation Authority for Education in Medicine and other Health Professions
  4. A true international medical university: campus in Antigua, clinical rotations in the U.S., Canada, and India
  5. A 27-acre, high-tech campus with a 24-hour library, universal Wi-Fi, and Echo 360 lecture capture, allowing you to view lectures long after they’re over
  6. Clinical training during Basic Sciences: an on-campus simulation lab, with the latest medical simulators including Harvey and SimMan, and pre-clinical courses at Mount Saint John’s Medical Centre, one of the most modern healthcare facilities in the Caribbean
  7. Many of our faculty members have been trained at the best international medical schools; they take their time to answer student questions and offer extended office hours
  8. Student Financial Services: a department designed to assist you with your loans and your budget while you attend medical school

  13. Qualified students can complete all clinical rotations at Florida International University Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine – a landmark partnership only available to AUA students
  14. Over 200 graduates matched at residencies throughout the U.S. and Canada in 2013 alone
