UA was founded in 2004 with the mission of addressing the growing physician shortage in the United States. Garnering the support of world-renowned Manipal University, AUA has developed into a hub of international education, centered in a recently built, 150,000 sq. ft., technologically advanced campus. AUA’s Basic Sciences curriculum consists of two semesters per academic year. This paradigm is based on top U.S. medical school programs and, coupled with AUA’s new campus, provides a learning experience unequalled in the Caribbean.
