Administrative Consultant’s Message
I take this opportunity to extend congratulations to the Board of Trustees, Board of Directors and Senior Management of the University for their steadfastness, commitment and hard wok in all their achievements over the years.
I have been affiliated with the University since 1985, when I held the post ofDeputy Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Health. During this early period, manychallenges and difficulties had to be overcome by the school. Nevertheless, withdetermination and commitment of senior management, together with the assistance andsupport of the Ministry of Health, the Institution has developed and improved over theyears and continues to grow and expand further.
By charter, the government of St. Lucia has given legal authorization to theUniversity to operate in St. Lucia as a Medical School. However, the MonitoringCommittee of St. Lucia, continues to monitor and oversee Spartan that guidelines arefollowed in keeping with universal standards, procedures and arrangements set for themedical school. Thus, the University is continuously being monitored for improvementsin respect to its educational program and related activities.
In this regard, the school is presently reviewing and adjusting, where necessary,its administrative structure and arrangements to better suit its mission and objectives.
Hence, my present role with the University is to assess the effectiveness of its ongoingadministrative structure and processes and to recommend changes where needed.
No doubt the future outlook of the University in St. Lucia is bright and optimistic.The University anticipates training the best physicians to meet the challenges of thefuture in the delivery of health care.Mr. Percival McDonald
