The University Of Health Sciences Antigua (UHSA) is a privately endowed institution that was founded in 1982. The university is chartered by the Government of Antigua and Barbuda.
The Dowhill Campus is about 12 miles from the nation’s capital of St. John’s and is situated on 50 acres land within the historical national park area of the English Harbor.
The University of Health Sciences Antigua’s School of Medicine was listed in 1983 with the World Health Organization (WHO) and confers eligibility on the medical graduates of the university to take the United States Medical Licensing Examinations (USMLE).
These are mandatory for all graduates of foreign and American medical schools for licensure to practice in the U.S. Instruction at the Medical School is given in English by reputable medical educators from around the world.
The University Of Health Sciences Antigua School Of Medicine is an international leader in its faculty’s use of information technology to provide lifelong access to high quality education for students.
Information technology refers to all types of technologies used in teaching and learning activities for the presentation, exchange, creation and transmission of knowledge whether on or off-campus.
In addition to a traditional medical curriculum, a non-traditional curriculum was developed in 1996 as a demonstration by the university that primary health care is the institution’s central mission.The program objectives are the same however, the course contents are organized differently as to facilitate learning for different types of students.
This program increases the number of primary health care physicians practicing in the rural and medically under-served areas around the world. Graduates of the Non-Traditional Medical Program are presently practicing in various parts of the U.S. as well as other countries of the world.
Within the non-traditional curriculum, the institution has developed the On-Line Basic Science Lecture Presentations (OLBSLP) and the On-Line Clinical Science Lecture Presentations (OLCLP).
The introduction of the On-Line Basic Science Lecture Presentations (OLBSLP) into the institution’s curriculum was originally designed to allow students to keep pace with the curriculum during the uncontrollable hurricane seasons in the region. However, it has since been used to complement, support and strengthen the educational delivery activities during the Basic and Clinical Science Studies.
UHSA has positively influenced the health care delivery systems of several countries in the world through the number of medical doctors which it has produced. UHSA has graduated doctors from at least 35 countries including Antigua, Bangladesh, Cameroon, China, Cuba, France, Germany, India, Iran, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Lebanon, Nigeria, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Syria, St. Lucia, Turkey, USA, United Kingdom and Vietnam, among others.
UHSA holds an enviable record with approximately 90% of its graduates passing the United States Medical Licensing Examinations on their first attempt. Consequently, considerable numbers of UHSA graduates are practicing medicine in several states in the U.S. including Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Wisconsin and California, to name a few.
