Alumni Testimonials

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.

Rahda Padhy, MD
MD (Class of 2013)

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.

Riddhi Upadhaya, MD
MD (Class of 2017)

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.
