American University of Antigua (AUA) College of Medicine is an institution dedicated to creating future generations of physicians that serve the communities they represent. Those communities are often underrepresented in the medical field and are reflected in the diversity of our student body. Founded in 2004, AUA has accomplished more than some schools have in decades. AUA leads the way in addressing the projected physician shortage, especially in the areas of primary care, family medicine, and internal medicine. Our world-class faculty places a premium on making themselves accessible to students and creating a learning environment in which hands-on training is the norm.

For students who are committed to studying medicine, passionate about serving their communities, and envision themselves responding to health care needs locally and globally, AUA is an ideal choice.

Accreditation Details

MCAT Requirements:
American University of Antigua believes there is no correlation between MCAT scores and becoming a licensed, successful, and caring physician. In accordance with our holistic approach to evaluating students, AUA will not consider MCAT scores in its admissions decisions. Nevertheless, AUA does require that students sit the MCAT and provide us with their scores as a condition for admission. We have this requirement because the United States Department of Education regulations mandate that International schools whose students receive federal financial aid, including AUA, must collect MCAT scores for all accepted US Citizens, US Nationals or US Permanent Residents whether or not we use those scores in determining who will be admitted. Given that there are a limited number of dates and places where students can sit the MCAT, it is a good idea to take the exam as early as possible if you are a US citizen, permanent resident or national and intend to attend AUA or any other Title IV eligible International medical school, even if you do not wish to receive federal aid. Here is the full calendar of this year’s MCAT Test Dates. NOTE: Canadian and other international citizens who are not also US citizens, permanent residents or nationals need not sit the MCAT or provide AUA with MCAT scores as the US Department of Education does not require AUA to collect MCAT scores from these students.

Details about the Pre-Med Program (if available):

American International College of Arts and Sciences – Antigua’s (AICASA) pre-med program gives qualified high school graduates the opportunity to complete medical school prerequisites in less than two years.

Through an articulation agreement with American International College of Arts and Sciences (AICASA), American University of Antigua (AUA) College of Medicine offers a program that gives students the opportunity to begin their medical education after graduating from high school. Qualified graduates of AICASA’s two-year AS in Health Sciences are guaranteed admission to AUA College of Medicine.

The Associate of Science in Health Sciences Program at AICASA is accredited by the Accrediting Council of Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS).

To apply, applicants must have earned a high school degree. Most successful applicants have earned a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.8. Applicants from U.S. schools have earned at least 1000 on the SAT or a 24 on the ACT.

Details about the Basic Sciences:

Basic Sciences courses are taught at AUA’s high-tech campus in Antigua. Courses follow a two-semester schedule. AUA’s distinguished faculty is available to mentor students on the foundations of medicine. Students are provided with immersive, preclinical training at the on-campus simulation center and at Mount St. John’s Medical Centre, one of the most advanced hospitals in the Caribbean. This early exposure to clinical situations allows students to excel in their rotations during their clinical years.

Details about the Clinical Sciences:

Clinical Sciences courses are taught at AUA-affiliated teaching hospitals throughout the United States, Canada, and India. Here, students apply the knowledge they learned during Basic Sciences to real-life situations. Students participate in a set of core rotations and choose their electives from a diverse selection of rotations, which are designed to mold students into well-rounded doctors.
