AUC Core Values & Principles

If our values represent you and the type of doctor you want to be, then we could be your match.


For 40 years, AUC faculty and administration have embraced teaching philosophies designed to train physicians who understand the value of teamwork, embrace the concept of lifelong learning, and understand that a doctor can impact entire communities just as much as individual patients. 

The three core values of our Doctor of Medicine program are Academic Excellence, Social Accountability, and Student Engagement. Read more below about how we weave these three principles into AUC's academic experience.
