A US-Modeled Doctor of Medicine Program
AUC's curriculum blends rigorous classroom study, simulation exercises, and community service.
As an AUC student, you will begin your journey to become a physician on our technologically advanced campus in St. Maarten, a collegial academic environment that emphasizes collaboration and community. Here, you’ll work closely with medical school faculty and peers to engage in concentrated study of the medical sciences over five semesters.
The goal of our curriculum is to help you become an adaptive expert with a mastery of medical concepts and the capacity to use this knowledge to guide diagnosis and treatment of patients. Therefore, AUC students gain clinical exposure early, and it increases each semester until it is the complete emphasis of the fifth semester.
During your time here, you’ll leverage advanced technology to enhance your medical school experience, such as our high-tech simulation center and anatomy lab.
US, UK Clinical Rotations
After completing the medical sciences portion of the curriculum, AUC students move on to years three and four in clinical rotations in the United States and/or the United Kingdom at AUC-affiliated teaching hospitals.
During this portion of the program, you’ll serve as a member of a team comprised of students, residents, and attending physicians. You’ll examine laboratory results, perform certain procedures, interact directly with patients to take medical histories and conduct physicals, and more.
Students proceed to residency placement through the National Resident Matching Program after completing the clinical program.
