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 below.
  2. CAAM-HP is not a registering body for medical practitioners. CAAM-HP's recommendations to medical practitioner registering bodies re examinations are based on the results of the accreditation survey process and reports. CAAM-HP in its accreditation process and decisions does not make comparisons between schools. Any medical school which has been accredited for four years or less 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.
  3. The maximum period for accreditation without conditions is 5-7 years depending on the length of the programme.
  4. Schools which have been granted Initial Provisional Accreditation as a Developing New School, must start the programme within two years or the accreditation status is withdrawn. New schools will be monitored on a yearly basis to ensure that their education programme is being carried out as approved.
  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.

NCFMEA Comparability Determination Successful



10th Anniversary Conference



International Recognition Granted!



























The Caribbean Accreditation Authority for Education in Medicine and Other Health Professions (CAAM-HP) has been made aware of claims that its Standards are being used by other accreditation bodies to evaluate medical education programmes located in their countries.

CAAM-HP wishes to make it clear that such accreditation exercises CANNOT be interpreted to mean that the CAAM-HP has accredited or approved these programmes. The programmes assessed and accredited by the CAAM-HP, with its independent international mechanisms, are listed on CAAM-HP's web site.

Any further enquiries or uncertainty about the validity of accreditation exercises claiming the approval of CAAM-HP should be directed to the CAAM-HP Secretariat.
