The American University of Beirut (AUB) was founded in 1866 as a private, independent, non-sectarian institution of higher learning. AUB has grown from 16 students in a rented house to a major university with over 7,400 students located on a 73-acre campus overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. AUB Medical Center is a 420-bed complex and provides all medical, surgical, pediatrics, obstetrics/gynecological and psychiatric services to the surrounding community. Students may choose from a variety of specialties that are offered at AUB such as:
  • internal medicine and subspecialties
  • pediatrics and subspecialties
  • OB/GYN
  • surgery and subspecialties
  • family medicine
  • dermatology
  • anesthesiology
  • research in basic medical sciences
Students must be able to perform standard clinical duties while in Beirut and are expected to work with a designated faculty mentor, who will evaluate the student's progress.
