The Summer 2022 semester will be offered in a HYBRID format. You have the option to take your courses in person or online.


Our administration and faculty are dedicated to providing you with a positive learning experience. We offer high-yield programs designed to provide you with a hands-on approach to practicing medicine. Small class sizes allow us to give each student the attention needed to pass USMLE tests, do well in residencies and clinical placements. 

Every professor at AUSOMA holds an MD and/or PhD in their fields of specialty who have taught medicine all over the world. Collectively, they have years of experience helping people prepare to become physicians. Meet our staff below.
