A US-Modeled Doctor of Medicine Program

AUC provides a supportive learning environment, enabling its medical school students to learn the foundations of medicine according to the US medical school curriculum model. AUC students benefit from a close-knit community characterized by small class sizes, attentive and accessible faculty, and the comforts of home that allow students to focus on their studies. All of AUC’s clinical rotations are provided at ACGME-approved hospitals. This, along with our students’ performance on the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE), bolsters their chances of obtaining a residency of their choosing.
