September 2020 Academic Term - Online

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, UHSA has decided that the September 2020 academic term (September – December) will be conducted online for both new and returning medical and nursing students. No changes will be made mid-term. Since we have already temporarily transitioned our medical and nursing curriculum to an online learning platform, we are well-prepared to continue delivering an interactive and seamless online learning experience.

Students will not be required to travel to Antigua.

Lectures will be conducted via live and recorded video while testing will be conducted through our learning management system. UHSA is committed to delivering the same personalized education online as in-person.

No. For your safety, the campus and on-campus accommodations will not be available.

Students will not require a visa or a passport at this time. However, please note that online classes are expected to be temporary, so we encourage you to still get your passport and familiarize yourself with the visa process if it applies to you.

No. UHSA will review applicants for September 2020, January 2021, and May 2021 for admission without an MCAT score. Applicants who have already taken and received scores for the MCAT are encouraged to submit their scores.

UHSA’s admissions committee interviews each student using live online video, so this process will not be impacted.

Yes. Your deposit secures your seat in our upcoming term.

No. The Clinical Sciences program at UHSA takes place in-person at our affiliate hospitals and cannot be online. UHSA’s clinical clerkships resumed on Monday, May 11, 2020.

We certainly understand that temporarily moving to an online education platform might feel different. We can assure you that despite being virtual, we are providing the systems and tools that will ensure that you will still receive an effective, personalized medical and nursing education.

As soon as our students can easily and safely return to in-person education, we will resume teaching on-campus. However, to be able to deliver our online curriculum, new systems, faculty training, and the development of proprietary processes were required to provide this method of education. This has resulted in the costs incurred by the university mostly remaining the same, including maintaining our facilities, salaries for faculty and staff, and establishing hospital agreements and partnerships.

Since physicians and nurses are needed more than ever, at UHSA, our goal is to continue to prepare you as a student to succeed at all stages of your medical career. What we can assure you of is that the cost of tuition will not increase during this time. We are also excited to inform you that UHSA has taken this time to make numerous improvements to our campus, which we are excited to reveal upon the return of our students.
