Greetings from Paradise!


As the Dean of Basic Sciences at UMHS I oversee the academic program at the St. Kitts Campus where we teach the first two years of your Medical Curriculum, the Basic Medical Sciences.

I am excited to be a part of such a vibrant university campus. We have approximately 450-500 students in St Kitts, which I believe is the optimum size for kicking off your new career in Medicine. The classes are relatively small which provides significantly more one on one access to the faculty, staff and administration. Yet, we have access to sophisticated learning resources that rival or exceed US schools.


Since joining UMHS I have been extremely impressed with the quality of the faculty. Unlike many large universities, where funded research is the primary goal of the faculty and teaching medical students takes a back seat, our professors are full time instructors with adequate time to ensure that your learning goals are met. While we do offer some research electives, there is no question as to where the faculty’s undivided loyalties lie: the students.

The senior administration of UMHS, including the President, are accessible, hands on, student centered professionals, whose exclusive priority is supporting and enhancing your efforts to become successful physicians.


I have experience in other medical schools, including the US, the Caribbean and across the globe. I can tell you that the UMHS family creates a spirit unsurpassed anywhere I have been. You will also notice that the St. Kitts citizens and government are great people, who are accepting and supportive to the school and the students. I have found this is not always the case in other Caribbean schools.


I hope that you will join us here at UMHS. I believe you will find that it is a wonderful place to start your medical career.
