Medical University of the Americas
The American Medical University (MUA) is a recognized institution in the Caribbean region that is committed to making medical education accessible and affordable. Since our inception 20 years ago, we have graduated physicians who have worked at several reputable hospitals in the United States and Canada. Our mission is to continue to supply the medical industry with skilled and talented medical professionals.
Based on Nevis Island, our students have many sophisticated facilities that help them learn and conduct their own research. MUA provides a fully equipped library as well as a range of classrooms and laboratories with cadaver for detachment. This island is a peaceful and safe place to study which means you will be able to avoid interruptions.
Our curriculum is modeled on those used by schools in the United States and Canada, so our students receive the same high quality education but at a more affordable price. MUA also keeps classes short and hires talented faculty, who hold MD or PhD, to help our students develop into highly skilled doctors. As a result of our teaching approach, our students consistently have a regular first-time pass rate of 95% in USMLE Step 1. Has performed well through 2015-2019.
Furthermore, the MUA is also accredited by the Accreditation Commission of the College of Medicine (ACCM) which uses similar standards to the accredited institutions for medical schools in the United States and Canada.
