AUA College of Medicine Establishes Admissions Agreement with Stetson University

MANHATTAN, N.Y. & DELAND, Fla. - Nov. 21, 2020 - PRLog -- American University of Antigua College of Medicine (AUA) is proud to partner with Stetson University, DeLand, FL, to offer undergraduate students an expedited pathway to medical school.

Under the terms of the agreement, graduates of Stetson University are eligible for advanced admissions priority, an expedited application review, and grants/scholarships for those that attend AUA for their medical education. Students will need to meet certain academic thresholds during their Stetson education for eligibility.

"We are excited about this agreement with AUA because it will offer a postgraduate pathway for Stetson's premedical students," said Noel Painter, Stetson Executive Vice President and Provost. "Students who have not previously considered a Caribbean medical school will see AUA as a great opportunity to continue their education in various fields of medicine."

Graduates of Stetson University who choose AUA will be eligible for a Preferred Partner Grant, in addition to any scholarships earned at AUA.

"The world needs doctors more than ever in these difficult times, and we believe that any student—if they're willing to put in the hard work and training needed to master medicine—should be afforded the opportunity to earn his or her MD," said Gerald J. Wargo, Jr., AUA Vice President of Enrollment Management. "Studying medicine at AUA helps gives students a global perspective of medicine that you just can't match at other schools, and I look forward to welcoming Stetson students to AUA in the future."

AUA has numerous admissions agreements with Florida undergraduate schools, including Florida A&M University, University of West Florida, Larkin University, and Valencia College. In addition, AUA collaborates with Florida International University (FIU) in Miami on special academic programs, such as AUA's Global Health Track.

Nov 27, 2020

NEW YORK — Cynthia Erivo and Greta Gerwig rocked sparkling chokers as the Golden Globes red carpet kicked off Sunday, with Erivo in a hand-beaded custom Thom Browne gown and Gerwig in black and cream. Both went off-shoulder for the big night in Beverly Hills, California. Erivo, the “Harriet” star and fashion standout, said her dress includes designs of her favorite flower, the peony, at the hem and in her lining. The short-sleeve gown, Erivo told E!, took 800 hours. A huge blue stone dropped from her short necklace. Shades of pink had an early trend moment on Kirsten Dunst...

Judge: No slander in Alec Baldwin's comments on parking spat

Nov 27, 2020

NEW YORK — Alec Baldwin didn't slander a man in interviews about a parking dispute that turned physical, a judge has ruled as dueling lawsuits between the actor and the other driver continue. Baldwin's remarks — including claims that Wojciech Cieszkowski's driving was “really fast,” “really aggressive” and made the actor think his wife and son were about to be run over — were "hyperbole" and "rhetorical illustrations," Manhattan judge David B. Cohen wrote Thursday. “They are words of frustration with someone's driving,” not accusations that amount to slander, Cohen wrote. He tossed out Cieszkowski's slander claim, but his assault...

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

Nov 27, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

Streep, Miranda and Stone are named as Met Gala co-0chairs

Nov 27, 2020

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...

ABC says interview with Epstein accuser wasn't ready to air

Nov 27, 2020

NEW YORK — ABC News faced questions Tuesday about its reluctance to air a sensitive story of alleged sexual misconduct after a leaked video emerged of reporter Amy Robach complaining about how her bosses handled an interview with a Jeffrey Epstein accuser. The conservative web site Project Veritas released video of Robach venting that "every day I get more and more pissed" that her 2015 interview with Virginia Giuffre never made the air. Robach made her remarks late in August while sitting in a Times Square studio with a microphone but not on the air. ABC said Tuesday that the...
