AUA's 2013 Graduating Class Secures Hundreds of Residencies Throughout the U.S. & Canada
Date:5/10/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) May 10, 2013

On May 16, American University of Antigua (AUA) College of Medicine's 2013 class will graduate, with over 230 graduates having secured residencies at prestigious residences across the U.S. and Canada.

This is the most from any single AUA graduating class. AUA graduates have matched at coveted residencies through the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP) and the Canadian Residency Matching Service (CaRMS). A majority of the graduates have secured placement in primary care practices, including internal medicine, family practice, obstetrics/gynecology, and pediatrics.

“As the Affordable Care Act expands health insurance to 30 million Americans and more baby boomers turn 65, there is a greater need for primary care physicians that AUA graduates are more than capable of fulfilling,” said AUA Senior Vice President for Enrollment Management & Chief Operating Officer Dick Woodward. “They have also demonstrated that they are more than capable of matching in some of the most competitive specialties.”

This year, graduates matched in specialties that have been difficult for Caribbean medical school students to obtain, including ophthalmology, neurology, nuclear medicine, child neurology, and diagnostic radiology. Some graduates will be completing their post-graduate education in notable residency programs at New York University, Emory University, University of California - San Francisco, University of Florida, University of Texas, Mt. Sinai, and Indiana University.

“We are proud of the dedication and drive of our graduates,” said Woodward. “Their accomplishments have encouraged current students to achieve higher and have elevated AUA’s status in the medical community.”

Historically, many AUA alumni have distinguished themselves as chief residents, fellows, award winners, and researchers. Graduates from previous classes have become residents at top teaching hospitals, including the Mayo Clinic, Cleveland Clinic, Brown University–Rhode Island Hospital, Case Western Reserve University at MetroHealth, Massachusetts General Hospital, the University of Toronto, and University of Chicago Medical Center–Northshore.
