    UMHS Receives Florida State Approval

    Advertisements



    We are pleased to announce UMHS has been granted a provisional license in the State of Florida, effective September 2018. With this approval we are now in a position to schedule core and elective rotations in Florida. UMHS is currently affiliated with Larkin Community Hospital in Miami and will be scheduling students there shortly. Our goal is to establish multiple hospital affiliations in Florida where students can complete both their core and elective rotations.

    With each approval the reputation of UMHS will continue to grow and flourish.

    There are only a handful of states that have a mechanism to approve a foreign medical school. We now have two of them, Georgia and Florida. In January 2020, we are poised to have approval in the State of California, see - https://www.umhs-sk.org/index.php/pr...pdate-may-2018. Later this year, we will be furthering our application to New York, which is the last remaining state approval we seek.

We call this unique approach, “personalized medical education,” and it’s what has led to our unprecedented 96% student retention rate, and outstanding Hidden Content across the US and Canada. UMHS is challenging everything you thought you knew about Caribbean medical schools.

    Thanks for this helpul information.

    However, are you accredited by the CAAM-HP?
    If not, your "license" in Florida as in any other state will be totally useless in a couple of years. Am I wrong?

    UMHS has ACCM accreditation which is an equivalent accreditation to CAAM-HP. ACCM is recognized by ECFMG and the US government. Read more about ECFMG, what the 2023 changes mean, and what accrediting bodies they recognize here - http://wfme.org/accreditation/ecfmg-2023/

    And from the UMHS website (https://www.umhs-sk.org/index.php/m-...editation-us):

    "In addition to having been granted a five year accreditation in 2012 and 2017 from the Accreditation Board of St. Kitts and Nevis, the University of Medicine and Health Sciences (UMHS) also has a full six-year accreditation from the Accreditation Commission on Colleges of Medicine (ACCM) an internationally recognized accrediting body,that follows the Liaison Committee of Medical Education's (LCME) Standards for Accreditation. The LCME is empowered by the US Department of Education as the accreditor of US and Canadian medical schools.

    ACCM is approved by the National Committee on Foreign Medical Education and Accreditation (NCFMEA). The NCFMEA is empowered by the US Department of Education to review written and applied accreditation standards for medical schools outside of North America. ACCM is approved by NCFMEA and is recognized as having standards comparable to those utilized in the US."
