CAAM-HP and its Mission

The Caribbean Accreditation Authority for Education in Medicine and other Health Professions (CAAM-HP)is the legally constituted body established in 2003 under the aegis of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), empowered to determine and prescribe standards and to accredit programmes of medical, dental, veterinary and other health professions education on behalf of the contracting parties in CARICOM. CAAM-HP will serve as the means of providing the assurance of quality that generates confidence in the principal stakeholders, students and the public.

The Mission of the CAAM-HP is undergirded by the principles of professionalism, integrity, accountability, transparency and collaboration.

What is Accreditation?

Accreditation is an objective peer review process designed to attest to the educational quality of new, developing and established educational programmes.

Why Accreditation?

The accreditation process assures that medical, dental, veterinary and other health professions schools meet standards of structure, function, and performance and assures society and the health professions that graduates of accredited schools meet the education requirements for further training and the health care needs of the people in the Caribbean.

The accreditation process adopted by the CAAM-HP has two general aims:

  1. To certify that a medical education programme meets prescribed standards, and
  2. To promote institutional self-evaluation and improvement.

Programmes Assessed by the CAAM-HP

The accreditation process is initiated upon the submission of a formal request by a school desirous of having their programme accredited. A programme is evaluated for initial accreditation only at the invitation of the chief executive officer of the sponsoring institution. The institutions listed below have done so and have had their education programmes assessed by CAAM-HP.

Schools with programmes assessed by the CAAM-HP have been reminded to be very precise when publishing their accreditation status. Any public announcement - written or oral - about a programme's accreditation status as determined by CAAM-HP must be accurately stated and should be given in full, i.e., if the strengths of the programme are being highlighted then the areas of non-compliance with accreditation standards must also be highlighted. The period of accreditation must also be stated.

ADVISORY :

  1. It has been brought to the attention of CAAM-HP that some medical schools claim to be adhering to CAAM-HP's accreditation standards. The Authority wishes to make it clear that references to the use of CAAM-HP's Standards SHOULD NOT be interpreted to mean that the CAAM-HP has accredited or approved these programmes. The programmes assessed and accredited by the CAAM-HP are listed in the accreditation list below.
  2. CAAM-HP is not a registering body for medical practitioners. CAAM-HP's recommendations to medical practitioner registering bodies re examinations are based on the results of the accreditation survey process and reports. CAAM-HP in its accreditation process and decisions does not make comparisons between schools. Any medical school which has been accredited for four years or less will have conditions attached. The conditions vary from school to school. CAAM-HP will not normally state the conditionalities on the website, but reserves the right to do so should any school publish misleading information to the public.
  3. The maximum period for accreditation without conditions is 5-7 years depending on the length of the programme.
  4. Schools which have been granted Initial Provisional Accreditation as a Developing New School, must start the programme within two years or the accreditation status is withdrawn. New schools will be monitored on a yearly basis to ensure that their education programme is being carried out as approved.
  5. It is a requirement, as part of CAAM-HP's monitoring of CAAM-HP accredited programmes that schools submit annual progress reports detailing how any identified areas of concern are being addressed. The CAAM-HP, on the basis of such reports, may make further determinations on the accreditation status of these programmes.
