AUA Signs Articulation Agreement with Greenville College

Greenville College signed an articulation agreement on Dec. 4, 2013 with the American University of Antigua (AUA) College of Medicine, located in Coolidge, Antigua. This agreement will permit qualified GC graduates to enter AUA’s medical program leading to a Doctor of Medicine degree.

Bradley Shaw; Associate Professor of Biology and Dean of Diversity, Dr. Eugene Dunkley).

To qualify for this agreement, GC students must have the coursework leading to a Bachelor of Arts or Science in Biology and meet the following requirements: an overall Grade Point Average (GPA) of 3.25 or higher, a GPA of 3.25 or higher in pre-requisite courses required by AUA, no more than one “F” or “D” grade in any pre-requisite courses required by AUA, submission of MCAT scores, and a recommendation for admission by an AUA Admission Officer.

This new relationship between GC and AUA provides an opportunity for students to attend medical school in a cross-cultural learning environment while also preparing for careers in medicine. “Attending medical school abroad allows students who are very strong in experiential learning gain valuable opportunities working alongside students and faculty from around the world” said Dr. Eugene Dunkley, Associate Professor of Biology and Dean of Diversity at GC. “This program emphasizes personal commitment and abilities, rather than just grades, and it has an excellent track record of getting students into residencies. We are looking forward to the opportunities that this agreement can provide for our students.” 

For more information about this agreement, please contact Dr. Eugene Dunkley.
