What sets UHSA apart?

Our curriculum has been meticulously crafted to meet the contemporary knowledge needs of physicians. The courses offered lay a strong foundation, ensuring that our students excel during the clinical phase of the UHSA medical program, which is crucial for success in the requisite licensing examinations.

For over four decades since 1982, UHSA has produced graduates from 21 countries and 45 states across the US, representing nearly every specialty, including surgery, obstetrics and gynecology, internal medicine, and pediatrics. Our alumni have attained significant positions, such as Heads of Hospitals, Department Heads, Faculty, Chief Residents, and Popular Lecturers.

At UHSA, we treat our students like family, not just a number in a classroom. Our small institution size allows for personalized education, and smaller class sizes eliminate the need to compete for clinical placements. With a vast network of Hospital Affiliations, our students enjoy top priority for hospital placement, ensuring maximum exposure to practical medical experience.
