AIMU-CUC Centre for Medical Science is the institutional partnership between American International Medical University (AIMU) and Columbia union college (CUC). AIMU is affiliated with AIM Group of Health Care Providers, with more than two decades presence in international health care. AIMU is a new generation health care education and service provider, partner of the Government of Saint Lucia and CUC. It offers a variety of programs at its Gros-Islet campus in Saint Lucia.
The AIMU-CUC Centre for Medical Science is located in Takoma Park, Maryland, USA in a serene environment of the Washington Adventist University, 30 minutes away from Washington DC. AIMU-CUC houses its administrative facility and the Office of the Clinical Dean, which co-ordinates the clinical posting and clinical studies of AIMU students. This office co-ordinates the placement of students to the hospital sites and provides a medium by which students are able to go through the clinical process. Each clinical site in the USA has a residency program approved by the Accredited Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) or affiliated with a medical school accreditated by the Liaison Committee for Medical Education (LCME). The attachment to these clinical facilities – that include highly sophisticated ACGME affiliated/accredited hospitals and state-of-art modern tutoring facilities – prepares the students to meet the higher standards for Board certification.
All affiliated hospitals with AIMU have a program director, faculty members, and an administrative assistant charged with the responsibility of teaching, supervising and, as well facilitating the clinical experience of AIMU students. The Program Directors are directly responsible to our Clinical Dean for the implementation of AIMU’s requirements. They also undertake daily supervision of clinical teaching programs and regularly scheduled core clerkship exams. Administrative professionals also complement their assignments by counseling students, co-ordinating daily programs, and management, and record-keeping requirements. The preceptors/guides from various specialties have good experience and exposure and are committed to the best possible results.
