    It is truly confusing. It appears 2+2+2 limits you to NY hospitals (California is not going to accept you). I wish it is clear. There are lot of people advising to goto premed in US and consider Carribean as last resort.

    KMC is a good school, but KMCIC is not recognized by California.

    Here is what is on the AUA website:

    It clearly states that students who complete basic sciences in AUA campus are recgnized, but not KMC campus. It appears California needs the pre-med program offered by KMC needs to be approved by Indian-Medical-Council first. I wish that is not the case.

    Already after high-school going to India or Carribean is a "one-way ticket", with not 100% chance of getting a return-ticket (for medical field).
    This further limits students chances...

    Add to this look at posts by Tipton (former official of AUA) and others. AUA is improving but still rated behind 2-3 other schools.

    Look on their website with a page that shows : medical-board-of-california-recognizes-aua-college-of-medicine

    *Students must complete their Basic Sciences studies at the AUA Campus in Antigua or if transferring from another institution to AUA, that university must be recognized by the Medical Board of California in order to be eligible for clinical rotations, residency placements and medical licensure in the State of California.

    Important note: AUA students who matriculate into the Basic Sciences studies at the Kasturba Medical College International Center (KMCIC) are eligible to participate at all other sites available to AUA students for all clinical rotations, residency placements and medical licensure EXCEPT in the State of California.
