  • University of the West Indies (UWI), Barbados Faculty of Medical Sciences

    The Faculty of Medical Sciences (FMS) began its distinguished history as the principal institution for medical education in the Commonwealth Caribbean in 1948 with the establishment of the Medical Faculty at the Mona Campus, Kingston, Jamaica. Initially founded as an overseas College of the University of London, the Faculty of Medical Sciences at Mona was the first established faculty in what, in 1962, was to become the University of the West Indies (UWI). Five years later in 1967, under the Eastern Caribbean Medical Scheme, the Faculty expanded to incorporate clinical training at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Barbados and the Port of Spain General Hospital in Trinidad and Tobago.

    In 1989, the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex was opened at Mount Hope in Trinidad and Tobago. This facility houses UWI’s second full medical school under a multi-disciplinary Faculty that includes Schools of Dentistry, Pharmacy and Veterinary Medicine.

    In 2008, the Cave Hill Campus upgraded and expanded its 40-year-old clinical programme in the School of Clinical Medicine and Research to full faculty status incorporating a 3-year Phase 1 programme. Over the years, postgraduate programmes in a wide range of medical specialties have also been developed at all campuses. The Cave Hill Campus has strong programmes in clinical specialties, leading to the DM in hospital based specialties as well as the Diploma, Masters and DM in Family Medicine. The Masters in Public Health was initiated in 2008, and most recently, a Ph.D. in Public Health.

    Today, the University of the West Indies as a whole has the unique status of being a truly international university, serving as the principal tertiary education institution for 14 Caribbean (CARICOM) countries, as well as hosting a growing number of international students. In 2006, its Medical Programme was accredited by the Caribbean Accreditation Authority for Education in Medicine and Other Health Professions (CAAM-HP).

    The Faculty of Medical Sciences thus continues to play a vital role in the training of healthcare professionals for the entire region, particularly doctors, and at all levels, from undergraduate through postgraduate to continuing medical education.

  • International University of the Health Sciences (IUHS)

    The IUHS Difference

    A New Model of Medical Education for the 21st Century

    Understanding that innovation creates sustainable change, IUHS is not a traditional brick and mortar school. The University invests in its students not in large capital-intensive infrastructure. Think of it as medical school 3.0.

    Active Learning

    IUHS uses technological innovation and is on the forefront of the new knowledge about how people learn. The University uses “Active Learning” and problem based cases to contextualize medical science learning in clinical settings and increase comprehension and retention.

    Active Learning puts students and their learning needs at the center of the experience; it stands in contrast to “standard” modes of instruction in which teachers do most of the talking and students are passive.

    A growing body of research has made it clear that the overall quality of teaching and learning is improved when students have ample opportunities to clarify, question, apply, and consolidate new knowledge. As a result, the role of the lecture has dramatically changed. At IUHS the lecture is not abandoned but instructors create opportunities for students to engage new material, serving as guides to help them understand and apply information.

    Benefits to Active Learning:

    • Improved critical thinking skills
    • Increased retention and transfer of new information
    • Increased motivation
    • Improved interpersonal skills
