WFME Recognition Status for the Caribbean Accreditation Authority for Education in Medicine and Other Health Professions (CAAM-HP) was due to expire at the end of May 2022. Renewal would normally depend on assessment of a new application from CAAM-HP, including observation of a CAAM-HP site visit to a medical school seeking accreditation. However, the COVID pandemic has meant that CAAM-HP has not been able to conduct any site visits for more than a year.
The World Federation for Medical Education Recognition Committee unanimously endorsed that the WFME Recognition Status for CAAM-HP should be extended for twelve months, to expire at the end of May 2023.
The Committee’s decision was based on a review of annual reports from previous years.
