Medical University of the Americas (Nevis, Caribbean) Fast Facts
Integrity in Education is the hallmark by which the Medical University of the Americas operates. Students admitted to this program should expect nothing less than to be challenged by a very rigorous medical curriculum that will prepare them for the challenges of medical practice in the 21st century. The medical school embraces a special mission to train practitioners from the island of Nevis and the Caribbean region and to contribute to the improvements of health education, research and prevention for the local population. The island of Nevis is, without question, one of the finest islands in the Caribbean to study medicine. Nevis is a small island where green is the dominant color. In addition to its tropical beauty, Nevis is a country where there is virtually no crime and where the literacy rate is the highest in the Western Hemisphere. MUA was developed with the support of the government of Nevis, and is therefore able to offer reasonable tuition, an active scholarship program, high quality instruction and a continuous, stable future for our graduates.
The Medical University of the Americas curriculum parallels the courses and training offered by medical schools in the United States and Canada. The Basic Science program is five semesters in length and may be completed in 20 months. The Clinical Medicine program is composed of 72 weeks of clinical rotations at hospitals in the United States and abroad. The minimum time required to complete the Doctor of Medicine degree is 40 months of continuous instruction.
The Basic Science campus is located on 10 acres of land generously provided by the Government of St. Christopher-Nevis.

All classrooms are air-conditioned and contain a wide variety of teaching resources such as classroom monitors, slide and overhead projectors, microscopes with video capability, LCD projectors, and computers. The gross anatomy laboratory utilizes human cadavers that have been especially prepared for medical dissection. The histology and pathology laboratories provide each student with a medical quality binocular microscope and prepared slides. Faculty has access to dual-binocular and trinocular microscopes to facilitate student learning. The campus cafeteria is open to all students, faculty, and staff from 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
