TAICEP Webinar: Accreditation of Medical Education Programmes in the Caribbean
Nov 21 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

Description: The Caribbean Accreditation Authority for Education in Medicine and Other Health Professions (CAAM-HP) was established in July 2004 under the aegis of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) to ensure that the education programmes of medicine and other health professions offered by institutions in participating countries are recognised nationally and regionally to be of international standard.CARICOM is a political and economic affiliation of 15 member countries all of which are signatory to the Agreement Establishing the CAAM-HP.

Medical education in the Anglophone Caribbean started in 1948 at the then University College of the West Indies (UCWI) with accreditation being provided by the General Medical Council of the UK up to the end of the 1990s. However, since the mid-1970s onwards the region has witnessed an influx of ‘offshore’ medical schools with an almost exclusively international student population mainly from the US and Canada with no recognised system of accreditation prior to the establishment of CAAM-HP.

In response to these developments and the regional thrust to ensure quality education and training in the context of the CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME), a regional accreditation system was established as a means of providing the assurance of quality that generates confidence in the stakeholders.

There have been many developments over the past fifteen years, including a growing number of schools seeking accreditation especially in the light of the ECFMG’s 2023 deadline for international graduates to have graduated from a programme which has been ‘appropriately’ accredited in order to qualify for ECFMG’s certification.

 
Presented by: Lorna Parkins, Executive Director for the Caribbean Accreditation Authority for Education in Medicine and Other Health Professions (CAAM-HP). 
 
Date: Thursday, November 21st
Time: 11am, EST

While in the Office of Administration and Special Initiatives, Mrs Parkins was directly involved with the Steering Committee mandated to undertake the establishment up of CAAM-HP. During her tenure at the university, she was promoted to the rank of professor. Mrs Parkins obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish and History and a Master of Arts in Educational Administration from the University of the West Indies, Mona.
