Get to Know MUA

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.
