The St. Kitts and Nevis Accreditation Board is also tasked to accredit tertiary-level education institutions and programmes that lead to MB.BS/M.D. degrees. It is essential that schools located in the Federation that offer these programs adhere to international and national standards of educational quality. By judging compliance to the Federation accreditation regulations, the public and enrolled students would be assured of the institution’s credibility and reliability.
To achieve and maintain accreditation, medical education programmes must meet the standards listed on this website. Medical education programmes located within the Federation must provide documentation on the following with their application:
- The Institutional Setting
- The Students
- Educational Programmes
- The Faculty
- Educational Resources
These requirements have been compiled using the regionally accepted standards in use by the Caribbean Accreditation Authority for Education in Medicine(CAAM), the standards of the General Medical Council of Great Britain (GMC), as well as those of the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) of the United States and Canada and the New York State Education Department (NYSED).
