Are you an AUC graduate who wants to stay connected with us? Check out our alumni-only Facebook page for news, photos, contests, and more!

At American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine (AUC), we are proud to have more than 5,000 alumni who are practicing all over the United States and beyond. Through the Office of Alumni Relations, we strive to foster the connection between the University and alumni by:

  • Offering access and support
  • Sponsoring academic programs and social events
  • Providing our alumni with news, events and connections to former classmates
  • Fostering alumni involvement

An excellent way to reconnect with former classmates—and to have a great time doing so—is by attending events such as Alumni Weekend. Alumni interested in serving as mentors to current and future students, or who desire to participate in national outreach efforts, have those opportunities through established programs such as Alumni Volunteers.

So that we may keep our records up to date and, in turn, keep alumni up to date, we ask alumni to fill out the Alumni Update Form.

Successful AUC Alumni

AUC has over 5,000 alumni, who are practicing in all 50 US states, Canada, and more than 20 other countries. Many of them are practicing medicine in some of the most prestigious hospitals in the country. Many are chief residents at their hospitals, entrusted with overseeing fellow physicians and responsible for entire divisions of patient care. Here are a few of their stories:

  • Drs. Lisa and Nicholas Batson succeeded in the couples match and are today co-leaders of the new psychiatry division at Crystal Run Healthcare, a multispecialty group practice in Middletown, New York.
  • Dr. Benji Ho, author of the widely read blog, Diary of a Caribbean Med Student,  answers a few questions about his journey to medical school; experience at AUC, including clinical rotations in the United Kingdom; and long-term career goals.
  • Dr. Aaron Chopee's change in career path leads to anesthesiology residency at University of Toledo.
  • Dr. Burton Tabaac, neurology resident at George Washington University, continues his journey of discovery through research publication in the Journal of Advances in Medical Education and Practice.
  • Dr. Dimitriy Golovyan was awarded first prize in the poster category of the annual scientific meeting of the New York Chapter of the American College of Physicians (ACP), and invited to present his research at the national ACP meeting.
  • Dr Laura Pickett landed competitive Dermatology residency at the University of Ottawa.
