A message from SVM'S Director - Dr. Karla Georges

Director, Dr. Karla Georges

Welcome to the School of Veterinary Medicine, Faculty of Medical Sciences. As an alumnus of the UWI, I am pleased to be leading this ever evolving programme in Veterinary Medicine.

The School of Veterinary Medicine is unique because it is the only School in the UWI ecosystem to offer this valuable and rewarding programme. The School serves as a beacon for improving human and animal health, protecting food supplies and trade in the region.

Through our association with regional and international agencies such as the Caribbean Veterinary Network, Caribbean Public Health Agency, Food and Agricultural Organisation of the United Nations (to name a few), we stand tall to protect and promote the human animal bond, our fragile ecosystems and all species entrusted to our care.



Our Mission

To produce well-trained, competent and versatile professionals who can practice all aspects of veterinary medicine in the Caribbean and in the wider world; and to develop a regional centre for diagnosis and research in animal (and human) health and disease control.

Our Vision

International recognition through excellence in teaching, impactful research, compassionate service and outreach.
