    AUA becomes the 1st and Only Caribbean Med School Affiliated with a U.S. LCME School

    August 11, 2009

    The American University of Antigua is pleased to announce that it has entered into a unique affiliation agreement with San Juan Bautista (SJB), School of Medicine – a U.S. LCME-accredited medical school. This joint effort will offer qualified AUA students the opportunity to participate in clinical clerkships as enrolled visiting students of SJB. SJB has clinical sites in Florida and Puerto Rico. These sites have all the necessary resources that meet the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) guidelines.

    In addition, SJB, based on their positive faculty review of AUA, has agreed to give transfer priority to AUA students subject to availability and students meeting their requirements for transfer.

    AUA is the first and only Caribbean medical school that has been able to enter into an affiliation with a U.S. LCME-accredited medical school that will provide clinical clerkship opportunities and the opportunity to transfer

    When I was about to graduate from middle school, AUA has just started. Now, I am starting college soon. I wonder how much AUA will change by the time I graduate from college.

    Perhaps by then AUA would have bought an LCME school (or devised some sort of dual-enrollment) and thus be the first Carrib school to be an extension of an LCME school.

    what it basically says is that aua has somekind of observation setup with a lcme hospital, are u even sure it is green booked, by the way, it is not a big deal, most caribbean schools have deals where they send their students to us hospitals to do observations for their 3rd and 4th year, it is not groud breaking at all, here is another thing, when the students finished with the clerkship and graduate, those people are still aua graduates(foreign) and not sjb graduates, so stop the purple dragon

    If statements are going to made, let’s make sure they are correct before making them as a point of fact.

    The announcement does NOT state it is any kind of “observation setup”. If you read it, it states: “the joint effort will offer qualified AUA students the opportunity to participate in clinical clerkships as ENROLLED VISITING STUDENTS OF SJB” This is a BIG DEAL!!! To our knowledge, AUA is the only Caribbean medical school with such an agreement with an LCME accredited school. This is not the same thing as sending clinical students to affiliated hospitals for rotations in the US as we and other Caribbean schools do. This arrangement is very unique, and gives our students some excellent opportunities for SJB approved rotations in Puerto Rico and Florida. These are LCME approved rotations, and in accordance with all state licensing bodies. My suggestion is that if you are a clinical student, you discuss this opportunity with your coordinator. I’m sure these openings will fill rather quickly.

    Lastly, this also affords an opportunity for some of our students to transfer to SJB as a full time student. This is not unlike our two recent students who transferred to Northeastern Ohio University College of Medicine.

    What are the Spanish language requirements? I'm assuming that if you're going to Puerto Rico, you'd be required to speak the native language, but what about Florida? My college transcripts say I speak Spanish, but I disagree. Should we be brushing up on our Spanish while prepping for the step1?

    No ARKIE Spanish is NOT a requirement, but it certainly couldn't hurt. While the staff speaks english, some of the patients may only speak spanish. There will be docs and staff there to interpret.

    I really do think that this would help in the Cali decision even if by a marginal fraction simply because 1, its the first school to do this and therefore stands out on a resume, and 2, it makes us more established. The more places we get the more people and hospital/affiliation can say that hey, AUA, that rings a bell (hopefully).

    Think baby steps....
