For those choosing an academic program leading to the Doctor of Medicine degree, I wish to emphasize what I believe are the distinguishing characteristics of the School of Medicine at Spartan Health Sciences University.
Our mission is clear: to prepare our graduates for further training in the profession of Medicine. We admit students we expect to graduate. We expect our graduates to take their places in a global community of dedicated physicians and empathetic practitioners of the art and science of Medicine. No one achieves such lofty goals without effort. Not staff, not faculty, not students. It is a mark of our learning community that everyone here is a student always.
In order to give its students the knowledge, skills, and attitudes for the practice of Medicine, the School has revised its curriculum, upgraded its faculty and improved its facilities. Our program is built on learning and understanding principles not test-taking preparation alone. Skill sets are practiced not merely introduced. We concentrate on the integration and associations between medical disciplines, not on the disciplines alone.
We utilize a variety of off island clinical sites but always under an umbrella of planned, coherent experiences. Our achievement in international licensing examinations is exemplary and our placement in graduate medical education programs is enviable. Our tuition, fees, and overall cost structure are among the lowest in the Caribbean Schools.
I encourage your careful consideration of the details that follow in these pages. I look forward to welcoming you to the learning community that is Spartan University.William R. Ayers, M.D.
