AUA College of Medicine Establishes Admissions Agreement with Stetson University

American University of Antigua College of Medicine (AUA) is proud to partner with Stetson University, DeLand, FL, to offer undergraduate students an expedited pathway to medical school.

Under the terms of the agreement, graduates of Stetson University are eligible for advanced admissions priority, an expedited application review, and grants/scholarships for those that attend AUA for their medical education. Students will need to meet certain academic thresholds during their Stetson education for eligibility.

“We are excited about this agreement with AUA because it will offer a postgraduate pathway for Stetson’s premedical students,” said Noel Painter, Stetson Executive Vice President and Provost. “Students who have not previously considered a Caribbean medical school will see AUA as a great opportunity to continue their education in various fields of medicine.”

Graduates of Stetson University who choose AUA will be eligible for a Preferred Partner Grant, in addition to any scholarships earned at AUA.

“The world needs doctors more than ever in these difficult times, and we believe that any student—if they’re willing to put in the hard work and training needed to master medicine—should be afforded the opportunity to earn his or her MD,” said Gerald J. Wargo, Jr., AUA Vice President of Enrollment Management. “Studying medicine at AUA helps gives students a global perspective of medicine that you just can’t match at other schools, and I look forward to welcoming Stetson students to AUA in the future.”

AUA has numerous admissions agreements with Florida undergraduate schools, including Florida A&M University, University of West Florida, Larkin University, and Valencia College. In addition, AUA collaborates with Florida International University (FIU) in Miami on special academic programs, such as AUA’s Global Health Track.
