School's History

The School is an organization promoted by leading physicians and educators from the U.S. We are a collaborative consortium dedicated to the advancement of healthcare and education through the development of new innovative educational methodologies. 

The School brings together the experience and commitment of educators from Applied Health Sciences, Computing, the Basic Sciences, Management, the Arts, Engineering, and Environmental Studies to collaborate on the solution of major health and education related challenges to an efficient, effective, and sustainable University.

A relative newcomer among medical colleges in the Caribbean, The School of Medicine has established itself in the heart of the Caribbean island of St Vincent and the Grenadines.

The School of medicine supports the mission to increase the availability of physicians to serve the needs of the people living in different parts of the world. Our academic environment fosters respect for the uniqueness of humanity. Students are provided with classrooms and clinical experiences designed to prepare them to function as competent, caring, lifelong learners with a distinct medical philosophy.

We invite you to explore this unique institution, the scope of its influence and its promise as the future unfolds.

In an ideal world, every qualified medical aspirant should be able to pursue their dreams with no obstacles. Sadly, we do not live in an ideal world and records show that due to a severe limitation of available seats, only one in four medical aspirants is able to find a spot in the medical institutions in US and Canada. This is where The School advantage comes into play. We strive to provide qualified applicants a means of achieving their dream of becoming a physician. We give new wings to your dreams and do not let a limitation of seats get in your way. In fact, approximately 25% of US medical residents are not graduates of U.S. medical schools.

ACADEMICS

Medical Schools are constantly improving their programs to keep up with the changes in Medical Education in United States and Canada.

Our College is adapting and improving the Medical program to reflect these aspects as well.

At The School, students are exposed to a case-based, problem-oriented curriculum (“problem based learning”, or PBL), which places emphasis on learning that is active (researching, discussing) rather than passive (sitting, memorizing).

Who, Imed And World Directory Of Medical Schools

The World Health Organization (WHO), early in its history, recognized the need for a reliable list of all of the world’s medical schools, to dologocument where the world’s doctors were educated. With the support of member states, the first edition of the WHO World Directory of Medical Schools was published in 1953.
In August 2007, the WHO signed an agreement with the University of Copenhagen to transfer responsibility for development and maintenance of the directory, which then became the Avicenna Directory, managed by the World Federation for Medical Education (WFME). The Avicenna Directory was opened in 2008, and was maintained by WFME from that date until the end of 2013.
The International Medical Education Directory (IMED) has been managed by the Foundation for Advancement of International Medical Education and Research (FAIMER), based in Philadelphia, since soon after the last printed edition of the WHO World Directory of Medical Schools. The information available in IMED is derived from data collected by the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) throughout its history of evaluating the medical education credentials of international medical graduates. Using these data as a starting point, FAIMER began developing IMED in 2001 and made it publicly available in April 2002.
The formation of the new World Directory of Medical Schools brings together the two existing world-wide directories of medical schools, Avicenna and IMED. The decision to merge the two directories was taken in September 2010. A Collaboration Agreement between WFME and FAIMER about this merger was finalized in March 2012.
