    How long do you spend in Antigua?

    Advertisements



    I wanna do the 6 yr AS/MD program at AUA. I assumed that would mean spending 6 years in the Caribbean. But when I read more info it says that you do clinical rotations in the U.S? Aren't clinical rotations part of the 6 years? I'm from the U.S....how long will I study in Antigua for?

    there is no way of accurately knowing how much time it will take for you to graduate from AUA. Yes if you are looking at actual semester Mr.T is right. If you are looking at actually becoming a doctor that time is unpredictable.
