American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine
Cupecoy, Antilles


University description (as per official university website)

American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine was founded in 1978, upon a belief in the need for visionary, skilled, compassionate doctors. AUC was originally chartered by the Government of Montserrat in the British West Indies. In 1995 Montserrat's Soufrière Hills Volcano, which had been dormant throughout recorded history, came to life in an eruption that left much of the island buried and the southern half of the island uninhabitable. AUC then relocated to the beautiful island of St. Maarten, a location with a standard of living that is unparalleled in the Caribbean.Three years later, in 1998, the School of Medicine completed a new multi-million-dollar teaching and learning facility featuring modern classrooms and laboratories, a virtual imaging anatomy lab, a microbiology lab, and a comprehensive medical library. In 2002, AUC’s modern one and two-bedroom student dormitory was constructed.Over the past 30 years, AUC has grown in numbers and in stature. We have established partnerships with clinical sites in the United States and England. With unparalleled instruction and rigorous training, each day at AUC provides a fresh chance to live our mission of preserving, transmitting, and applying humanity's accumulated medical knowledge and clinical skills to develop graduates whose accomplishments attest to their intellectual discipline.As a result, in the years since AUC’s founding, more than 4,000 graduated physicians have made a significant impact in the field of medicine in countries around the world.

Institutional PurposeThe mission of the American University of the Caribbean is to provide qualified students of diverse backgrounds with an excellent medical education within an atmosphere of academic integrity and scholarship that fosters the highest standards in professional ethics and competence. The school is dedicated to developing physicians with a lifelong commitment to patient care centered research, public health and community service.

AUC At A GlanceAmerican University of the Caribbean School of Medicine is committed to providing a high-quality, internationally recognized program of medical education.With a highly regarded faculty, impressive USMLE passage rates, an accomplished network of alumni, and strong partnerships with residency placement sites across the United States, AUC is a place where new latitudes of medicine intersect every day.Academics

American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine (AUC) has provided students with quality medical education since 1978 and has over 4,000 graduates who are licensed and practicing medicine throughout the world.
AUC is fully accredited by the Accreditation Commission on Colleges of Medicine (ACCM). AUC students are eligible to sit for the USMLE, obtain U.S. Federal Financial Aid if qualified, become active members of the American Medical Student Association (AMSA) and, upon graduation, obtain residency and licensure throughout the United States.
The curriculum is modeled after U.S. medical schools, with five semesters of basic sciences taught at the St. Maarten campus, followed by four-and-a-half semesters of clinical sciences taught at affiliated hospitals in the United States and England.

AUC has more than 500 medical science and clinical faculty members who have been trained at some of the finest medical institutions in the world.
AUC faculty are committed teachers, scientists, scholars and physicians who hold a M.D. or a Ph.D. and represent diverse backgrounds in medical research and practice.
Campus Facilities
AUC has modern classroom and laboratory facilities, including a virtual imaging anatomy lab, research lab, and comprehensive medical library.
Students can live on campus in beautifully furnished dormitory units with kitchens, spectacular views and recreational amenities.
Our campus reflects the charm and character of St. Maarten— safe, beautiful and tranquil.

Student Life
The cultural and racial diversity at AUC prepares students for interacting in an increasingly international professional life with compassion and empathy.
Many entering students have recently completed pre-medical undergraduate coursework; however, AUC also has non-traditional students who have been practicing as allied health professionals or who are changing careers.
The faculty, students and spouses at AUC form a strong, supportive community and participate in a wide variety of campus organizations and outreach programs.
Residency Preparation

AUC students take the same USMLE examinations as medical students in the United States, and our passage rates are competitive with comparable U.S. medical schools.
Our graduates obtain residency appointments at highly regarded programs. Popular states for residency training are California, New York, Michigan and Pennsylvania.
