American University of Antigua (AUA) College of Medicine proudly attended the 2018 Global Healthcare Summit hosted by the American Association of Physicians of India Origin (AAPI).

The Global Health Summit took place in Mumbai, India from December 28-30, and provided a platform for Indian physicians and physicians of Indian origin the opportunity to share their expertise in their respective medical fields with fellow physicians.

Since 2012, AAPI has recognized AUA as the leader in international medical education. After conducting a comprehensive site visit, AAPI awarded AUA this distinction based on AUA’s numerous state accreditations, strong curriculum, global health resources and graduate success. Presently, AUA is the only medical school to receive this status and recognition.

AUA President Neal Simon participated in panel discussions during the Summit’s Access to Healthcare and CEO Forum where he discussed global healthcare and the much-anticipated global physician shortage. Additionally, Simon joined William W. Pinksy, M.D., President & CEO of the Education Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) on a panel to discuss the international medical school’s programs and the importance of credentialing and credential verification.

As a globally-focused medical school and a division of Manipal Education and Medical Group, AUA maintains strong ties to India. “We continue to be impressed with the quality of physicians, researchers, and scientists that come from India,” noted Simon. “They advance and further progress global health initiatives that impact the world. Their medical community continues to be a significant contributor to our institution’s success.”
