Medical University of the Americas Nevis

Medical University of the Americas

Medical University of the Americas is the right place to launch your career in medicine. When you take a look at what MUA has to offer, we think you will agree:

  • Our 10-semester program -- five semesters on our campus in Nevis and five semesters at teaching hospitals in the U.S. or Canada--gives you everything you need to earn your M.D.
  • MUA's educational philosophy emphasizes small class sizes and one-on-one interaction with faculty--you get the individual attention you need  to succeed.
  • MUA graduates have a track record of outstanding performance--on licensing exams (i.e., USMLE Step 1 and 2) and in obtaining excellent residency placements across a wide range of specialties.
  • MUA's commitment to medical education has received the recognition of key medical licensing authorities, including the New York State Education Department/State Board for Medicine.
  • MUA's location is ideal and convenient--Nevis is one of the most beautiful and historic islands in the Caribbean, and easily reached from anywhere in North America.
  • MUA is affordable--other medical schools charge tuition and fees that are as much as double that of MUA.This enables our students to complete their education with far less indebtedness.

Pre-Medical Program

Many students with the desire and ability to earn an M.D. begin the process of applying to medical school, only to discover that they lack the pre-medical education requirements.

This is especially true for students who decided to focus on medicine as a career late in their undergraduate experience.

For these students, Medical University of the Americas offers a Pre-medical Program on its campus in Nevis that is specifically designed to address the missing elements in your undergraduate pre-medical coursework, and provide a smooth transition into the Doctor of Medicine Basic Science program.  

Basic Sciences

The five semesters of the Basic Sciences curriculum can be summarized quite simply: First you will learn about the healthy body, and then you will study the unhealthy body.

Along the way you will get your first taste of how to apply that knowledge clinically (which will be the primary focus of your second five semesters).

At the completion of your Basic Sciences semesters you will take the United States Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE) Step 1.

Medical University of the Americas provides you with a comprehensive course of study in the Basic Sciences that will prepare you for the USMLE, your clinical studies and residency. 

Clinical Education

Your clinical education at Medical University of the Americas takes place primarily in the second half of your academic program: Semesters 6 to 10—your final semesters before earning your M.D. and entering a residency program.

The Clinical Medicine program at MUA is 72 weeks:

42 weeks of required core rotations in Surgery, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Psychiatry, and Obstetrics and Gynecology.
30 weeks are elective clinical rotations that may be in any of the various medical specialties, depending upon the student’s future goals.
