About Us

Founded in 1982, the University of Health Sciences Antigua (UHSA) located in Dowhill, Piccadilly Antigua is an outstanding academic institution dedicated to educating exemplary physicians, nurses, postgraduates and researchers in accordance with the highest professional standards who will integrate clinical, biomedical and behavioral knowledge to promote the health and well-being of patients and communities.

We are committed to educating physicians and health care professionals who will address national and international challenges in medicine with an emphasis on primary care and be known for excellence in practice, service, compassion, collegiality and scientific curiosity while demonstrating sensitivity to the diverse cultural environments in which medical care is delivered.

Our curriculum has been designed taking into consideration, the need for knowledge of today’s physicians and nurses. Due to the solid foundation of the courses taught, our students are very successful during the clinical portion of the UHSA medical program. This is a major factor in successfully passing the required licensing examinations.

Since 1982, UHSA has graduated students from over 21 countries and 45 states within the U.S. Our students are represented in just about every specialty including, surgery, obstetrics and gynecology, internal medicine, and pediatrics. UHSA students have also gone on to prominent positions such as Heads of Hospitals, Department Heads, Faculty, Chief residents, popular lecturers, etc.

At UHSA, you are more than just a number; you are family. You will not find yourself in a classroom with hundreds of other students. One of the benefits of attending a smaller institution, such as UHSA, is the opportunity to experience a personalized education. You will be welcomed by faculty who live on campus, know your name, and who support you even outside of the classroom.

At the University of Health Sciences Antigua, we are actively seeking men and women who are committed to the goal of making a positive contribution to health care. Are You Ready?
