A contingent of 100 Members of Faculty and students of the Dominica Campus of the All Saints University, College of Medicine, left St. Vincent and the Grenadines this morning to return to Dominica.
All Saints University took the policy decision to transfer the operations of the Dominica Campus to St. Vincent in early October of last year, following the devastation caused by Hurricane Maria.
However, the Dominica Campus is set to re-commence operations in Roseau, Dominica, at the beginning of the coming semester on Monday, May 7, 2018.
Luis DeShong, Principal Assistant Registrar at All Saints University College of Medicine, St. Vincent Campus said in a release that the contingent was due to leave here via a vessel which was scheduled to depart the Cruise Ship Terminal in Kingstown at 9.30am.
Approximately fifty other Members of Faculty and students will return to Dominica by air, between April 26 and May 7.
All clinical students of the Dominica Campus, that is, those who are currently doing their clinical rotations at the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital, the Kingstown District Clinic, the Belair Clinic and the Stubbs Polyclinic, along with students in the MD4 and MD5 classes, will continue their Medical education at the St Vincent Campus.
All Saints University expresses profound gratitude and appreciation to the Government and people of St. Vincent and the Grenadines for their kind and warm embrace of the Faculty and students of the Dominica Campus since their arrival here in St. Vincent and the Grenadines in October of last year.
