Once new students arrive in St. Kitts and settle in their new living arrangements, a variety of activities are planned for new students at the University of Medicine and Health Sciences (UMHS).


Student Orientation


Students coming to theUniversity of Medicine and Health Sciences for the first time attend New Student Orientation during their first week on campus. This gives new students time to acclimate to island life, connect with fellow classmates, and be introduced to the campus, academic programs, and student services.  During orientation week, several events are planned to help students acclimate to their new environment, including a first-semester party, a catamaran/snorkeling trip for students and faculty, and a tour of St. Kitts. 


Seminars occur during orientation to help new students become familiar with their unique living environment. Students meet with the St. Kitts police to learn about traffic safety and security. Local government officials will discuss visas, immigration, and national security. Campus tours take place that orient students to the Ann Ross Library and the Learning Resource Center. We also arrange to have a local cell phone vendor on campus for students to acquire an affordable island telephone plan.  We will bring students to the local banks as well as the local supermarket.  During the evening hours, our welcoming committee plans social events and group dinners.

Registration for each new semester occurs at the end of orientation. New students will obtain their university identification badges at that time. All students will receive their class schedules at registration. Representatives from the UMHS Financial Aid office will be available during registration to assist students and respond to any questions.
