The perfect place for learning

At MUA, we’ve combined a systems-based U.S. curriculum with the time-tested belief that students learn best in small classes, where they can interact one-on-one with their professors. Those small classes also help create the strong feeling of community and collaboration that runs through everything we do at MUA, from the classroom to the clinicals and beyond. MUA has an integrated, systems-based curriculum that parallels the training you would receive at a top US medical school. This curriculum, in collaboration with our excellent faculty (all of whom have either an MD or a PhD in the field they teach), small class sizes and a focused emphasis on preparing you for Step 1 of the USMLE, will set you on the best course possible to becoming a doctor.
