Learning Through Experiences That Last A Lifetime…
At Lincoln American University, we believe that books and classrooms are just complementary pillars of medical education and not the roots of it. With us, our students learn medicine through experiences, through care of people who need it, by delivering happiness in the form of health care to those who are suffering. When aspiring doctors deal with patients, under our experts’ guidance, the learning they gain via those experiences, is immense and can neither be expressed in words nor be gained through any books or classrooms, but only experiences. We, therefore encourage students to participate in blood donation camps, health education of schoolchildren and community outreach programs.
We Take You Beyond Medical Education
At Lincoln American University, we don’t deliver just medical education, but humanity, compassion, courage, and perseverance as well. From the start, we encourage our students to participate in community welfare and medical outreach programs, see the real problems in the real world through the lens of real life, develop empathy to help those in need and conduct research of their own to solve real-life health care problems.

Gateway to Medical Licensure in United States
At Lincoln American University, we provide an inclusive medical curriculum that is a blend of the best aspects of the National Medical Commission and US based medical education curriculum and also caters to the local community requirements. While most of the medical curriculum is similar in terms of content across the globe it is the methodology of delivery of curriculum that makes LAU unique. LAU follows a system-based curriculum where there is both horizontal and vertical integration of knowledge so that the concept of basic sciences is not taught in isolation. We cover all aspects related to a system starting from embryology, gross anatomy, histology, pathology, clinical aspects, pharmacology and preventive aspects. Together with this horizontal approach we have verticals like General Pathology, General Pharmacology, Forensic Medicine, Microbiology, Community and family Medicine, Psychiatry and Behavioral sciences etc.
We Focus on Your Holistic Development
All work and no play make Jack a dull boy and Jill a dull girl! We all know that. Well, we don’t want our students to get dull while pursuing the hard yet exciting path of becoming a doctor. That’s why we keep arranging extra-curricular activities and celebrations to keep them alive in the environment of which they are an integral part. At times, we let our students take a break from education, go out for a picnic, involve in some recreational activities, regain their energy, come back and study smart.
Our blended approach towards life and education maintains a perfect balance between the stress of medical education and the joy of living in Guyana that ensures the holistic development of our students.
At the campus, we celebrate diversity too! We have students from different countries with different religions who speak different languages and join the university with their own suitcase of culture. We celebrate Diwali, we celebrate Lohri, we celebrate Eid, we celebrate Christmas, we celebrate birthdays and we celebrate other occasions too!
