In March, the Faculty of Medical Sciences spent a week celebrating its 25th anniversary, noting its tremendous regional contribution over that period. Under the theme, FMS@ 25-A success story, a number of events were held, culminating with a symbolic flag being hoisted on the grounds at Mt Hope. Flags representing The UWI and NCRHA were placed side by side to signify the strengthening of the relationship. Campus Principal, Professor Clement Sankat, NCRHA head, Dr Rampersad Parasram, and outgoing Dean of FMS, Professor Samuel Ramsewak were the flagmen at the event. A time capsule was encased in cement, which will be unearthed in 2040. A Mural, “Mount Hope Life,” was unveiled in the foyer of Amphitheatre A. The mural was created by the members of the Art Society of Mount Hope.
