The General Medical Council (GMC) helps to protect patients and improve medical education and practice in the UK by setting standards for students and doctors. The GMC supports them in achieving (and exceeding) those standards, and take action when they are not met.
This means that any doctor awarded a primary medical qualification from AUA will be able to apply to sit the PLAB test and for GMC registration, without having their qualification individually assessed.
AUA received this distinction after an AAPI delegation conducted a comprehensive site visit. Based on their observations and AUA’s numerous state approvals, the strength of its curriculum, resources, faculty, and its graduate success, AUA has become the only medical school to receive this “preferred” status and recognition.
AUA’s Emergency Medical Training Center (EMTC) is an official NAEMT Training Center. As such, it joins NAEMT at the forefront of national discussions and initiatives that significantly impact the EMS field. The NAEMT sets the global standard for EMS evidence-based, field-tested, continuing education that emphasizes critical thinking skills to obtain the best outcomes for patients. We are proud to work hand in hand with the NAEMT on initiatives that seek to improve the delivery of emergency services around the world.
AUA is a member of the Consortium of Universities for Global Health (CUGH). As a CUGH member, AUA can participate in global health-themed conferences, workshops, and webinars, and access CUGH’s online information hub of materials for educational and program development.
