The administration and faculty at Medical University of the Americas bring extensive experience and insight to the challenge of medical education.
All MUA faculty have an advanced medical and/or doctoral degree (MD, MBBS, PhD) with postgraduate training in a medical or academic specialty, as well as demonstrated experience in teaching and/or research. We also look for something more in our faculty: a strong desire to work closely with the students they teach.
The trend at so many schools these days is toward huge lecture halls and bigger and bigger class sizes, offering little opportunity for the type of one-on-one instruction MUA feels is essential to a great education. Many of our faculty members tells us they chose MUA specifically because we give them that opportunity.
