A contingent of one hundred members of Faculty and students of the Dominica Campus of the All Saints University, College of Medicine, left St. Vincent and the Grenadines yesterday, to return home.
The students departed from the Cruise Ship Terminal in Kingstown, aboard the vessel L’Express Des Iles. Approximately fifty other members of Faculty and students will return to Dominica by air, between April 26 and May 7.
The Dominica Campus of the All Saints University, College of Medicine, will re-commence operations in Roseau, Dominica, at the beginning of the coming semester on Monday, May 7, 2018.
Several students of the Pre-Med classes and the first two levels of the MD classes of the Dominica campus have already begun the necessary steps leading to an official transfer to the St Vincent Campus.
All clinical students of the Dominica Campus, i.e those who are currently doing their clinical rotations at the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital, the Kingstown District Clinic, the Belair Clinic and the Stubbs Polyclinic, along with students in the MD4 and MD5 classes, will continue their Medical education at the St Vincent Campus.
All Saints University took the policy decision to transfer the operations of the Dominica Campus to St Vincent and the Grenadines in early October of last year, following the devastation caused by Hurricane Maria.
All Saints University expresses profound gratitude and appreciation to the Government and people of St Vincent and the Grenadines for their kind and warm embrace of the Faculty and students of the Dominica Campus since their arrival here in St Vincent and the Grenadines in October of last year.
