It’s true that classrooms, labs and studies will be the focus of your time at AAU—but there is more to medical school than that, particularly here.
It starts with our emphasis on community, and our requirement that all unaccompanied students spend their first semester living in communal dorms. Not only does this simplify life as you make your transition into medical school, but it helps build a sense of camaraderie among your classmates that will last through your years at AAU and beyond.
And then there is the amazing adventure of spending two years of your life on the beautiful and historic island of Nevis—an opportunity to immerse yourself in a new culture and a different way of life that you may never have again.
So yes, you will study hard when you come to AAU. But you will leave not only with an incomparable medical education, but with good friends and a lifetime of memories.
