MUA Gateway Medical Program

Gateway Medical Program

15-week medical school preparatory program for MUA’s conditionally accepted students, online or on-campus.

What is the Gateway Program?

The Gateway Medical Program is a 15-week preclinical and clinical sciences program offered online or on-campus to students who have been granted conditional acceptance to Medical University of the Americas (MUA). 

Gateway is offered three times per year, beginning in January, May, and September. Upon successful completion of Gateway, students join the next entering MUA medical school class. 

Gateway Program graduates may qualify for the full range of academic scholarships offered by MUA’s 4-Year MD Program based on their combined GPA across both the Gateway Program and their undergraduate study or their MCAT score, whichever affords the higher scholarship payout.  

Students may attend Gateway part-time, and online students may attend asynchronously.
