As the 2023 deadline for international medical graduates to be certified to practise or enter residency programmes in the United States of America (USA) approaches, Caribbean states are seeking accreditation for their medical schools from the Jamaica-based Caribbean Accreditation Authority for Education in Medicine and other Health Professions (CAAM-HP).
CAAM-HP is pleased to announce that on May 20, 2019 it signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Ministry of Higher Education Science and Technology (MESCYT) of the Dominican Republic in Santo Domingo
The Caribbean Accreditation Authority for Education in Medicine and Other Health Professions (CAAM-HP) began the accreditation of other health professions when it undertook the assessment of the education programme of the School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of the West Indies (UWI).
The Caribbean Accreditation Authority for Education in Medicine and other Health Professions (CAAM) is the legally constituted body established to accredit medical, dental, veterinary and other health professions programmes leading to professional degrees required for practise in member states of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM). It was set up with the aim to ensure that schools in participating countries in CARICOM are recognised to be of international standard at the national, regional and international levels.
