Students come to Medical University of the Americas to become doctors; our hard-earned reputation for excellence attracts a variety of students from across the globe.

Initially, you will enroll on the Basic Sciences program which will provide you with foundational knowledge of the human body and how it behaves in states of health and disease. Across these first five semesters, you’ll also develop your clinical and research skills, both of which are vital for becoming an exemplary doctor.
