Caribbean Medical School Admissions


Explore admissions, including the application schedule and review process.

MUA has built its reputation as a medical school through a careful admissions process that looks at each applicant individually. We want to know as much about you, the person—why you are considering medical school and what you hope to bring to the practice of medicine—as we do about your GPA and performance on standardized tests.

Application Schedule

MUA operates on a year-round, three-term schedule, and new students can choose to begin their medical studies at any of three times during the year: September, January, or May. For that reason, we accept applications throughout the year.

Review Process

Once all admissions documents are received your application will be submitted to the Admissions Committee for initial review. Within a week’s time an interview may be requested by the Committee, if applicable.

Interviews are typically 30 minutes to one hour in length and will cover a variety of topics, including your desire to become a physician, your academic preparation for medical school, your clinical experience and your knowledge of our program. This interview is your opportunity to introduce yourself to one or more Admission Committee members and have any of your questions answered in return. Once the interview is complete, you will receive the Admissions Committee decision within 3-5 days business days.
