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.

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.
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.
