MESSAGE FROM THE DEAN

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 Science Program.

I am excited to be a part of such a vibrant university community. We have approximately 500 students in St. Kitts, which I believe is the optimum size for starting your new career in medicine.

Our classes are relatively small, which provides each student with significantly more one-on-one access to the faculty, staff, and administration. We also offer access to sophisticated learning resources that rival or exceed those found at U.S. medical schools.
