There are many different reasons to choose Atlantic University School of Medicine for your medical education. First and foremost is the quality of the education that you will receive in our low stress environment, in addition to the dedication of our faculty, and the affordability of a complete medical education within the supportive medical community that we have built.

Our faculty and administrators have always emphasized academic excellence through teaching that is standardized to that which would be found in any medical institution within the United States, which has helped to make us one of the stronger choices for students who are looking to become physicians. Our goal is to persistently remain within the mainstream of North American medical education paradigms so as to provide all of our graduates with the ability to practice medicine in any country they choose. Our fifth semester is conducted in a didactic as well as clinical setting at a teaching hospital in the United States, and our clinical program is conducted at only Accreditation Counsel of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) affiliated teaching hospitals and clinics. Opportunities to complete the clinical portion of the program also exist in the United Kingdom and other sites throughout Europe.

We recommend that part of your criteria for selecting a medical school should include a visit to each school under consideration. You should observe the quality of teaching and speak with the faculty and students. Proudly, we can say that we have a ninety-nine percent enrollment rate for students who visited our campus. If you feel you are closer to applying to medical school, we suggest that you take a close look at what our university has to offer.
