Celebrating 40 Years of Medical Education

AUC is celebrating four decades of training dedicated men and women to become physicians.

This year marks the 40th anniversary of American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine. From humble beginnings in Montserrat to our sprawling campus in St. Maarten, AUC has flourished over four decades. Today, our family stands at over 7,000 strong.
To commemorate the many achievements and milestones throughout our history, AUC and the Student Government Association will host a 40th Anniversary Gala and weekend of festivities in St. Maarten from November 30 through December 2, 2018. We look forward to welcoming alumni, colleagues, and students to campus for festivities throughout the weekend.
