Canadian Applicants to AUC

American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine (AUC) welcomes applications from Canada. Canadian students comprise about six percent of the AUC student body—a number that is expected to grow as our Canadian graduates continue earning residencies and fellowships in both the United States and Canada. 

Applying to AUC is a very similar process to applying to a medical school in Canada and our admissions requirements are largely the same. Though AUC does not participate in the Ontario Medical Schools Application Service (OMSAS), you can easily apply to AUC online.

Why Should Canadian Students Consider AUC?

  • Clinical opportunities in Canada. AUC’s clinical curriculum is comprised of 72 weeks of clinical rotations that include 42 weeks of core clerkships and 30 weeks of electives. Core clerkships are completed at affiliated clinical sites in the United States and/or United Kingdom. During your 4th year, you have the opportunity to engage in elective rotations at various sites in Canada, the United States and abroad.

  • An opportunity to see a different type of healthcare system. Whether you choose to complete your clinical rotations in the United States or the United Kingdom, you can see an entirely different healthcare system in action. Given that the practice of medicine is becoming increasingly globalized, this experiential learning could help you add a valuable, broader perspective of how varying healthcare systems operate.
  • A true sense of the global healthcare experience. AUC students have ample opportunity to get hands-on experience in service learning and outreach through events like Community Action Day, where students engage with locals about ways to improve their lives and health.
  • Three start datesstart medical school when it's right for you. AUC enrolls students in January, May, and September, allowing flexibility for when you decide to apply to medical school. Each start date carries unique benefits. To learn more, please visit this page.
