The Faculty of Medical Sciences (FMS) at UWI recognizes, as one of its major responsibilities the creation of a committed workforce for the health sector in the Caribbean. This is in direct response to the challenges that the region has faced recently with regard to the delivery of quality health care. The FMS at UWI ultimately sees its role in bringing about needed change in improving health care in the region as one of its most immediate goals in keeping with its Mission Statement: “To train health professionals to meet the needs and improve the care of those whom they serve.  To strive for professional excellence while contributing to the social, economic, and cultural development of the Caribbean and to inculcate an attitude of lifelong learning, ethical conduct, and excellence in service and research in its graduates.”


 As a vehicle for achieving this, the FMS will be hosting a conference entitled “Improvement in Health Care Quality and Delivery: Making a Difference” scheduled for 18th & 19th January 2013.
