Education is not only a ladder of opportunities but it is also an investment in our future. – Ede Markey. If education is a ladder than higher education is surely one bigger step in this ladder which takes you to another level.

In India, there are many opportunities for those who want to pursue higher education in a field of their choice. Do you know India’s higher education system is the third highest in the world? But the sad reality is that not many are aware of the right courses or the right place to go to fulfill their dreams.

There are many good medical, engineering and pure sciences colleges that offer different combinations in the subjects of your choice. As a parent of a teenager, I know that college selection and admission is not an easy decision. It is a big investment, not only from a money point of view but otherwise too. So, it makes sense to keep in mind points like recognitions, accreditations, affordability, the procedure of selection, quality of faculty, level of education, placements, career prospects, etc. while evaluating a college.

Manipal’s AUA College of Medicine –

One such college is Manipal’s AUA College of medicine or Manipal’s American University of Antigua College of Medicine. It has carved its niche as an innovative medical school dedicated to addressing the projected shortage of physicians in India.

It is a ray of hope for all those bright, enthusiastic and deserving students looking for that one medical institution where their dreams can come true. The holistic medical education offered by Manipal’s AUA College of Medicine promises to groom its students into well-rounded world-class physicians, and not just qualified medical doctors. The university has got many prestigious accreditations and recognitions. That’s what makes them a perfect place for students to pursue their medical studies.

The curriculum prepares its students to take on the world after acquiring their degrees. Their highest academic standards and global medical programs help qualified doctors to practice in any part of the world. It is possible because Manipal’s AUA College of Medicine has made its mark as one of the most preferred destinations as far as foreign medical education is concerned.

The Accreditations and recognitions-

Apart from the Canadian Ministry of Education (CME), Medical Board of California (MBC), the New York State Education Department (NYSED), Commission for Independent Education, Florida Department of Education (CIE), accreditation from CAAM- HP, AUA is also recognized by the Medical Council of India and by UK’s General Medical Council (GMC). While not pertinent to international students, the U.S. Department of Education has approved Manipal’s AUA College of Medicine for the federal Title IV loans – an achievement not many international medical schools can boast of.

The AUA College of medicine also has a ritual of commitment called the white coat ceremony. It happens at the very beginning of medical education for future graduates.  It is a great way to instill the values to develop skills and attitudes of lifelong learning, compassion, and professionalism.

As a mom, I am quite impressed by their vision to provide a learner-centric education and how it prepares students to take on the world after finishing their studies from here. If your child has passion and aptitude to be a doctor, Manipal’s AUA medical college is the place to be!
