ABOUT AUC

American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine (AUC), founded in 1978, is one of the oldest Caribbean medical schools. AUC offers a diversity of students a high-quality medical education. We have more than 6,000 alumni who are practicing in all 50 US states, Canada, and more than 20 other countries. AUC graduates compete for and often obtain residency positions at prestigious healthcare institutions and academic medical centers, often in leadership positions. 

At AUC, we believe that the complex healthcare landscape of tomorrow will require a different type of doctor — one capable of working as part of a cohesive team to deliver empathetic, extraordinary care to patients. AUC’s central tenet is that we can accomplish more together than we ever could on our own. And for more than 6,000 AUC graduates practicing around the world, that tenet has worked.
