OML Adds University Health Sciences, Antigua as Recipient
OML is proud to announce its new relationship with University of Health Sciences Antigua (UHSA), a privately endowed institution, founded in 1982 and chartered by the Government of Antigua and Barbuda. Although resources are quite limited, 90% of the UHSA medical students pass the USMLE on their first attempt at taking the test. UHSA Graduates are practicing in the United States, Canada, Europe, Africa & Asia, that why our motto says: UHSA, Medical School to the World.
Macedonia School of Nursing is a part of the UHSA campus. In the first years of the university’s charter, emphasis was placed on establishing a medical school. In recent times, the worldwide shortage of nursing personnel has drastically increased the need for nurses who are well educated. As a result, UHSA decided to fulfill the nursing component of the charter in an effort to provide qualified nurses not only for local needs but for regional and international health care institutions.
The UHSA School of Veterinary Medicine opens in September 2010.
The request for medical, nursing and veterinary medicine textbooks came from Ms. Lyzette Roman, Director, Office of International Affairs and Programs in Puerto Rico. Materials sent to UHSA are considered domestic and do not require US Customs forms. The most economical USPS rate is Media Mail. Please send textbooks to Lyzette’s attention c/o International Medical Student Services, 650 Munoz Rivera Avenue, Suite 304, San Juan, Puerto Rico 00918-4112.
If you have questions, please email Lyzette or visit the UHSA Website.
