UMHS Receives Full Accreditation

New York, NY (December 3, 2012) - The University of Medicine and Health Sciences (UMHS) has received full St. Kitts Accreditation, further establishing itslf as a top-tier Caribbean Medical School and a leading medical institution.


Earning full accreditation in its host country is an important achievement for a Caribbean Medical School. UMHS receiving full accreditation from St. Kitts and Nevis is a significant milestone in the University's mission of educating tomorrow's physicians.


The Accreditation Board of St. Kitts/Nevis uses clearly defined standards for accreditation to evaluate medical education programs, including:

  • areas of organization
  • physical facilities and equipment
  • clinical resources
  • library and information resources
  • programs and curriculum
  • admissions policies
  • faculty qualifications
  • research programs


The Accreditation Board recognizes UMHS as meeting or exceeding all of the standards required for educating physicians.

These comprehensive standards are in place to ensure that UMHS students receive the training needed to protect and preserve human health. The site visit team examined all aspects of the University that relate to medical student instruction. They conducted extensive interviews of faculty, staff and students, and in their final analysis concluded that students are receiving the best professional medical training possible.


"The entire community pulled together to demonstrate our commitment to educating tomorrow's physicians. The site team members were impressed by our dedication and collegiality, and recommended full accreditation," stated Warren Ross, President of UMHS.
