American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine (AUC) offers comprehensive medical training designed to prepare aspiring physicians for practice in the United States, Canada, and beyond. Learn more about our Doctor of Medicine (MD) program below.

A US-Modeled Medical School Curriculum 

You’ll start out on AUC’s supportive campus in St. Maarten—a warm, collegial academic environment that emphasizes collaboration, empathy, and team-based care. Here, you’ll work closely with medical school faculty and your peers to engage in concentrated study of the medical sciences over five semesters. You’ll be exposed to the clinical side of medicine as early as semester two, with an increased clinical emphasis in semester five. During your time here, you’ll leverage advanced technology to enhance your medical school experience, such as our high-tech simulation center and anatomy lab.

Clinical Rotations in US Teaching Hospitals; UK Rotations Available

After completing the medical sciences portion of the curriculum, AUC students move on to clinical rotations in the United States, Canada, or the United Kingdom at AUC-affiliated teaching hospitals. During this portion of the program, you’ll serve as a member of a team comprised of students, residents, and attendings. You’ll examine laboratory results, undertake certain procedures, perform histories and physicals, and more. Students proceed to residency placement through the National Resident Matching Program after completing the clinical program.
