Programmes Assessed by the CAAM-HP

The accreditation process is initiated upon the submission of a formal request by a school desirous of having their programme accredited. A programme is evaluated for initial accreditation only at the invitation of the chief executive officer of the sponsoring institution. The institutions listed below have done so and have had their education programmes assessed by CAAM-HP.

Schools with programmes assessed by the CAAM-HP have been reminded to be very precise when publishing their accreditation status. Any public announcement - written or oral - about a programme's accreditation status as determined by CAAM-HP must be accurately stated and should be given in full, i.e., if the strengths of the programme are being highlighted then the areas of non-compliance with accreditation standards must also be highlighted. The period of accreditation must also be stated.

ADVISORY :

  1. It has been brought to the attention of CAAM-HP that some medical schools claim to be adhering to CAAM-HP's accreditation standards. The Authority wishes to make it clear that references to the use of CAAM-HP's Standards SHOULD NOT be interpreted to mean that the CAAM-HP has accredited or approved these programmes. The programmes assessed and accredited by the CAAM-HP are listed in the accreditation list above.
  2. CAAM-HP is not a registering body for medical practitioners.
  3. CAAM-HP in its accreditation process and decisions does not make comparisons between schools. Any medical school which has been accredited will have conditions attached. The conditions vary from school to school. CAAM-HP will not normally state the conditionalities on the website, but reserves the right to do so should any school publish misleading information to the public.
  4. Schools which have been granted Candidacy as a New and Developing School, must start the programme within two years or the status is withdrawn. New schools will be monitored on a yearly basis to ensure that their education programme is progressing in keeping with CAAM-HP’s requirements.
  5. It is a requirement, as part of CAAM-HP's monitoring of CAAM-HP accredited programmes that schools submit annual progress reports detailing how any identified areas of concern are being addressed. The CAAM-HP, on the basis of such reports, may make further determinations on the accreditation status of these programmes.
  6. CAAM-HP expects that all promotional material, electronic or otherwise, accurately reflect the institution’s current accreditation status.

False Claim made in the Antigua Daily Observer about the Accreditation of Atlantic University School of Medicine

Read more.

An article titled “Atlantic University School of Medicine now accredited”, which appeared in The Daily Observer in Antigua on 14th February 2018, was brought to the attention of the CAAM-HP Secretariat from various sources. The claims made in the article included the following:

“The Atlantic University School of Medicine (AUSM), which relocated to Antigua from St. Lucia last year, is now fully accredited by the Caribbean Accreditation Authority for Education in Medicine and Other Health Professions (CAAM-HP).”

The public is hereby advised that this statement is completely false. The medical programme at Atlantic University School of Medicine in St Lucia or Antigua has never been reviewed by the CAAM-HP nor has the school submitted an application or documents for consideration by this Authority.
