AUA Secures CAAM-HP Accreditation
American University of Antigua College of Medicine’s MD program was granted accreditation for another four years (2018–2022) by the Caribbean Accreditation Authority for Education In Medicine and Other Health Professions (CAAM-HP). CAAM-HP is the legally constituted body established to accredit medical, dental, veterinary, and other health professions programs leading to professional degrees required for practice in Caribbean Community (CARICOM) member states.
Gaining accreditation by CAAM-HP involved a demanding review process that assessed every facet of AUA’s medical program. This accreditation is exclusive to medical schools that meet or exceed the highest industry standards.
In their report, the visiting team commends AUA for:
- the caliber, enthusiasm, and diversity of AUA’s students and their performance on USMLE examination
- its physical facilities and educational resources
- the highly motivated and dedicated faculty and administration
University Provost, Dr. Robert Mallin, MD, said, “We are pleased to have receive this recognition from CAAM. This is the highest accreditation they offer, and for the longest period of time available. It is proof that our institution continues to excel in providing an outstanding medical education for our students. Our faculty, curriculum, and educational resources are second to none.”
