Educational Partnerships


American University of Antigua (AUA) College of Medicine graduates have obtained residencies at prestigious teaching hospitals throughout the U.S. and Canada. AUA alumni have distinguished themselves by becoming chief residents, earning significant awards, and obtaining competitive fellowships.

In accordance with the holistic, overall approach to evaluating students, AUA does not have a minimum GPA or MCAT score to apply. All applicants will receive an interview and be evaluated on a combination of academic performance, motivation to become a physician, commitment to the medical field, and work and leadership experience.

AUA does not use the MCAT score as a condition for acceptance, however the scores are required to matriculate.  Only accepted students who are U.S. citizens, nationals or eligible permanent residents will be required to submit copies of their scores—listing all attempts. Canadian students and international students do not have to fulfill this requirement.

Culver-Stockton and AUA have a 3+4 agreement which allows students to complete 3 years at C-SC then go to AUA Med. School for 4 years (3+4) to earn a B.S. degree from C-SC and an M.D. degree from AUA. To be considered for this program, a minimum GPA of 3.25 (on a 4.0 system) with a minimum science GPA of 3.25 is required as well as a recommendation from science faculty at C-SC.
