The Progression Agreement signed between the two institutions will pave the way for interested USW graduates to attend the International Track of AUA’s MD program. Students in this program track will complete 2.5 years of pre-clinical sciences at AUA’s campus on the island of Antigua and have the option to complete their clinical sciences in the UK, the US, Canada or India. Students who wish to pursue clinical rotations in the United Kingdom must be UK citizens or otherwise qualify.
The agreement, which recognizes the benefits of a transatlantic affiliation and is supported by NHS Trusts offering clinical rotations, helps USW graduates pursue their medical education in state-of-the-art learning settings via an organ system-based, entirely integrated curriculum. Earning a primary medical degree from AUA enables graduates to apply/sit for the Professional and Linguistic Assessments Board (PLAB) test for GMC registration without having their qualification individually assessed.
Dawn Story, Head of USW’s School of Applied Sciences, said: “This is an excellent opportunity for students undertaking courses in Biomedical Sciences to access an opportunity to study for an international qualification.”
Dr. Peter Bell, AUA’s VP Global Medical Education & Executive Dean Clinical Sciences, said: “I’m delighted to be a part of an exciting journey through which students would receive exposure to learning through the latest technology during their studies, delivered via a pioneering curriculum.”
