AIMU-WAU Centre for Medical Science
AIMU-WAU Centre for Medical Science is the institutional partnership between American International Medical University ( AIMU ) and Washington Adventist University (WAU). WAU is an accredited university located in the suburb of Washington DC, the nation’s capital, known for its quality education. 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 WAU. It offers a variety of programs at its Gros-Islet campus in Saint Lucia.
The AIMU-WAU 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-WAU 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.
Some of the partnership programs as well as direct program’s of WAU are offered at Washington Adventist University and Hospital, Washington Adventist University was established in 1904 as a co-educational institution known as the Washington Training Institute. Its purpose was to train young men and women in the liberal arts. In 1907, when the name was changed to Washington Foreign Mission Seminary, the more limited objective of special training for missionaries replaced the original concept of a liberal arts college. In 1914 the college resumed the status of a liberal arts college and took the name Washington Missionary College. In 1942 Washington Missionary College was given accreditation as a four-year, degree-granting institution by The Commission on Higher Education of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. Washington Adventist Hospital is a 281-bed acute-care facility located in Takoma Park, Maryland. Opened in 1907, the hospital is Montgomery County’s first cardiac center, performing more than 500 open-heart surgeries and more than 6,000 heart catheteization each year. In 2007, Washington Adventist Hospital celebrated 100 years of providing care to the communities it serves. As the hospital did a hundred years ago, it continues to strive to remain ahead. For this reason, the hospital is in the process of building a new hospital for the next century. The vision of 21st century facilities is becoming a reality on a 48-acre parcel of land near White Oak, about six miles from our current location – in the heart of the hospital’s primary service area. The new hospital, along with services retained in Takoma Park, will strengthen healthcare in our region and expand access to healthcare for the communities it serves in Montgomery and Prince George’s counties and our surrounding areas.
