Recently, representatives of the American Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (AAPI) visited AUA’s campus to review its facilities, curriculum, and academic outcomes.

The verdict? According to the AAPI—currently about 800,000 members strong throughout the United States—AUA is a “world leader” in medical education. We’re honored to be the only medical school with this distinction from the AAPI.

What Makes AUA a World Leader?

According to Himanshu Pandya, MD—the 2019 president of AAPI’s Queens-Long Island chapter—AUA has the tools, the curriculum, and the faculty to provide a world-class medical education.

“Cutting-edge facilities, distinguished faculty, and excellent clinical experiences prepare graduates to practice medicine throughout the United States and Canada,” Dr. Pandya said. “[The] amazing high-tech simulation lab is a perfect model for medical learning.”

AUA received this honor based on a site visit by AAPI physicians and and medical educators; the success of AUA graduates in obtaining residency positions; its faculty and hospital affiliations; and its numerous state and federal approvals.
