Diversity guides our M.D. Program
American University of Antigua College of Medicine was established in 2004 with the mission to provide access to medical school to a broader group of deserving students by pioneering a holistic approach to admissions that takes into account more than test scores.
Our interactive curriculum, supported by the latest medical technology and small faculty-to-student ratios, helps students thrive in our rigorous program.
AUA graduates practice in major healthcare systems and physician practices across the U.S. and we are proudly responsible for graduating more underrepresented minority M.D.s than just about any medical school across the U.S. and the world.
We welcome future generations of doctors who aspire to serve communities of people who look like they do, who call the same places home, and whose lives have been shaped by the same experiences.
If you’re a self-starter and hands-on learner, you will thrive at AUA College of Medicine.Get Started
