The AUA Alumni Association’s mission is to establish a lifelong link between members of the alumni community, and between the alumni and student communities. The Association will address the needs of its members by offering opportunities to help advance their medical careers, and by attempting to connect them with other medical professionals, political leaders, and speakers bureaus.
Listen to what our Alumni have to say about their journey towards becoming successful doctors. Inspiring stories of students who strived and succeeded with AUA.
From the Class of 2013, Dr. Natasha Dave was raised in California where she was inspired to become a doctor after her father had developed colon cancer while in high school. Following in the footsteps of her sister, she also pursued medicine and attended the American University of Antigua for her MD.
Shortly after graduating, she began her residency in Sinai Health System as an Internal Medicine Resident, then attended the Baylor College of Medicine as a Nephrology Fellow and eventually became a Nephrologist at the Bruce W. Carter VA Medical Center.
Dr. Dave is currently a Medical Director at Strive Health located in Denver, Colorado.
A private institution dedicated to the training & education of next generation’s physicians. #AUAMed
It was never a question about diversity at AUA because I went there and I remember seeing all different types of cultures, all different types of languages, and people from India, people from the United States, people from Canada, and there was really no distinction.
I want to start off by saying that I am very thankful to AUA for these last 10 years. I started with premed in 2011 at AICASA, followed by AUA from there. I had one of the best experiences in residency at UIUC at Carle Foundation Hospital, which allowed me to continue following my dreams and currently be at University of Miami for Critical Care Fellowship. I have been both privileged and humbled with taking care and watching the progression of COVID-19 since March 2020 and currently working in strictly COVID MICU.
AUA is dedicated to the success and well-being of their students and will provide you all the tools you need to become successful and establish your career, just as they have provided me. I am grateful to AUA for giving me a chance when nobody else would.
