ACADEMICS FAQ

Pre-Clinicals

  • Will the Fall 2021 academic period be on campus?

    Students in Med 1 will have the option of participating in our remote curriculum at home, or in Antigua.

    Students in Med 2-4 will participate in our campus learning activities  in person. This includes ICM activities, simulation exercises, and lectures/classes.

  • I’ve registered for the Global Health Track (GHT). When does it start, and how will instruction be administered?

    GHT students will begin the academic program on July 19th, 2021 (for new students) and July 12th, 2021 (continuing students), and June 28th, 2021 (BSIC intersession students) as originally scheduled. All didactic (ie, teaching-focused) components of GHT will be delivered. The more hands-on elements of GHT, such as field trips, will be conducted during subsequent academic periods.

  • For the application-based learning/clinical/lab – how will these be modified to ensure students are still getting the best exposure needed to pass exams?

    For first academic period students, Anatomy lab will be provided in a virtual environment remotely. Introduction to Clinical Medicine labs will also be provided remotely and will involve some simulation activities.

    Exams will be conducted and proctored remotely. AUA’s exams are constructed using the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) Computerized Assessment System (CAS). These exams are scored by the NBME and provide important feedback on how they will do on USMLE licensing examinations.
