Recently, an agreement has been signed between American University of Antigua and Warwick Medical School with the purpose of enabling students of AUA's College of Medicine transfer to WMS to finish their medical degree. This partnership between both these prestigious universities aims at nurturing a diverse academic community to propagate global medical health propelled by their promise of delivering nothing but excellence.†

Expanding its reach, AUA has entered into a new articulation agreement with Royal Crown College of Business and Technology Inc. to increase the scope for students to fulfil their passion to become physicians. "We are pleased to partner with Royal Crown College and provide their successful students the opportunity to continue their medical education at AUA," said AUA President Neal Simon.

According to the agreement, after the successful completion of the premedical program or prerequisite courses at Royal Crown College, qualified medical students will be eligible to complete their first two years of medical study at AUA in Antigua and Barbuda, and the last two years in AUA's affiliated hospitals in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom and India.

The next recent and proud partnership has been sealed between AUA and Yeovil District Hospital, Great Britain. "Learning from the professors and physicians at Yeovil District Hospital and performing rotations under the talented professionals there provides our students an enhanced clinical experience, as well as the opportunity to study in Great Britain" said AUA President Neal Simon.

This agreement allows qualified AUA students to complete their clinical rotations at Yeovil District Hospital, located in Somerset, England. Upon completion of the program, students will receive a medical degree from AUA, a Yeovil District Hospital graduate certificate program transcript and a Yeovil District Hospital certificate of completion.†

Further, on Saturday, May 4, and Sunday, May 5, it was a matter of pride for AUA College of Medicine to have hosted the ninth mid-year conference of the Global Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (GAPIO) at AUA's campus. GAPIO is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to empowering physicians of Indian origin providing affordable healthcare, contributing to local and regional community development and helping reduce health inequalities on a global level.

The goal of this collaboration was to gather physicians of Indian origin to initiate connections, share ideas and learn through a singular platform.

The event also included sessions on artificial intelligence in healthcare, Vedic Wisdom - leadership in medicine and reaching the unreached and global opportunities in healthcare.†
