FIRST-SEMESTER TUITION BACK GUARANTEE

AUC is confident in our students and their ability to successfully transition to the rigorous demands of medical school. We believe in you and your ability to succeed so much so that we’re willing to refund your first-semester tuition if you don’t pass.

New, first-time matriculating MD students who complete semester 1, including final exams, and do not advance to semester 2 because they earned a failing grade in a semester 1 courses/modules required for advancement are eligible for the guarantee. Students eligible for the guarantee receive a reimbursement of tuition based on the following formula: tuition assessed minus institutional scholarships or grants received. Please note, only tuition is included in this guarantee, any fees and other expenses and/or charges are excluded.

REMOTE LEARNING OPTION

While we will continue to deliver our program in person on island in the January 2023 semester, we are excited to announce we are offering a remote option for first-time first-semester students for their first term only*  to give them flexibility in learning options to start their medical education. AUC is committed to providing medical students choosing to start online with the same knowledge and expertise that their classmates in Sint Maarten will receive.  

*The January 2023 semester remote option for new, first-time first semester students is contingent on the U.S. COVID-19 national emergency declaration and federal allowances. If the national emergency declaration and federal allowances are terminated prior to the end of the January 2023 semester, you will be required to attend on island. The remote option is not offered to continuing students (semesters 2-5) or students repeating the first semester.

Doctor of Medicine Program

Students learn the basic sciences (termed Medical Sciences in AUC's curriculum) in Sint Maarten the on-island portion of medical training lasts for roughly half of your AUC education (72 weeks, less than two years). Dedicated faculty, many recruited from US institutions, teach a US-modeled basic sciences curriculum in highly advanced lecture halls and facilities in our high-tech, high-touch campus environment.

After completing basic sciences, you'll move on to clinical rotations in the United States, Canada, 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 attendings. You'll examine laboratory results, undertake certain procedures, perform histories and physicals, and more. Students proceed to residency placement after completing the clinical program.

FEATURED EVENTS

Is AUC accredited?

Yes. AUC's medical school facilities and curriculum are accredited by the Accreditation Commission on Colleges of Medicine (ACCM), which is the accreditor used by the country of St. Maarten. Being an international foreign operating school, AUC is not eligible to seek accreditation from traditional US accreditors.

How does that compare to US accreditation?

A special review board appointed by the US Department of Education (the National Committee on Foreign Medical Education and Accreditation, or NCFMEA) has reviewed ACCM's standards and determined that they are comparable to those used to accredit medical schools in the US. This is an important distinction for AUC, and one held by only a few Caribbean schools.

What can I expect in the basic and clinical sciences curricula?

During the first two years of your education, you'll complete exciting coursework that seamlessly integrates basic and clinical sciences. In addition to intensive study of subjects like anatomy, microbiology, and histology, you'll complete Introduction to Clinical Medicine (ICM), AUC's four-semester, case-based clinical skills course. In small groups and supported by faculty, you'll examine and interview standardized patients, document patient histories, hone exam skills through advanced simulation technology, and more.

For the remaining 72 weeks of your education, you'll complete core rotations, plus any elective rotations you select, at US or UK teaching hospitals.
