It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the School of Veterinary Medicine within the Faculty of Medical Sciences. As a proud alumnus of the UWI, I am honored to lead this dynamic and continually evolving program in Veterinary Medicine.

Distinguished by its unique standing, the School of Veterinary Medicine holds the distinction of being the sole institution within the UWI ecosystem offering this invaluable and fulfilling program. Our mission extends beyond academic excellence; we serve as a guiding light for the enhancement of both human and animal health, the safeguarding of food supplies, and the facilitation of regional trade.

Through these collaborations, we proudly stand tall, dedicated to the protection and advancement of the human-animal bond, the preservation of our delicate ecosystems, and the welfare of all species entrusted to our care.

Thank you for being a part of our journey as we strive for excellence in education, research, and service. Together, let us continue to make a positive impact on the health and well-being of our communities and the world at large.
