    an editorial on the future of accreditation in caricom nations

    I urge all potential medical students who are thinking of going to medical schools in the following countries to be sure that the schools are accredited by the new agency CAAM under the CARICOM authority
    Antigua & Barbuda (AG)
    Bahamas (**)
    Barbados (BB)
    Belize (BZ)
    Dominica (DM)
    Grenada (GD)
    Guyana (GY)
    Haiti (HT)
    Jamaica (JM)
    Montserrat (MS)
    St. Kitts & Nevis (KN)
    Saint Lucia (LC)
    St. Vincent & The Grenadines (VC)
    Suriname (SR)
    Trinidad & Tobago (TT)
    You can review their website at:
    www.caam-hp.org
    State/provinces and foreign govt. medical agencies should follow closely the progress this agency makes because it will help change the face of education. The standards that this agency has set will not allow diploma mills or poorly equipped schools to be approved.

    We've had these discussions before and I think most of us are in agreement that this is a good thing provided it is executed fairly. It appears to be transparent so far, yet I do question the rationale for the decision to keep their reports confidential. That would seem to be the heart and essence of this endeavor.

    Still pertinent I guess.

    Can anyone provide feedback on what evaluation organizations are reporting transparantly, as a point of comparison? Be they, North American, international or whatever.
