UWI objects to internship bid


Share post:

THE UWI’S Cave Hill Campus is closely monitoring reported attempts by the American University of Barbados (AUB) Medical School to get the green light to have its students attend training classes at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, even though the school is not yet accredited.

The UWI’s medical faculty is the only institution that has accreditation to teach medicine here, and has an established affiliation with the QEH. AUB set up school in Barbados five years ago and while it is registered it cannot receive accreditation until students have graduated.

However, medical sources reported that in recent times the AUB, located at Silver Sands, Christ Church, had been making a serious push to have its students involved in the QEH clinical clerkship programme because many of them from India and Nigeria had no visas to do internships at affiliate hospitals in the United States.
