Dear UHSA Family,
Given the globally confirmed cases of COVID-19, we are taking the necessary measures to ensure the safety of our students. As a result, beginning Monday, March 16th, 2020, the current term and upcoming May 2020 academic term for the medical school will be offered remotely using existing online academic platforms. Enrolled M.D. and Premedical Sciences students will not be required to travel to Antigua at this time. The cost of tuition for new students has also been revised.
In-person classes in Antigua will immediately be changed to online courses until further notice. Online lectures will be both live and recorded, allowing continued learning anywhere there is adequate internet access. We want to thank everyone who contributed to the effort as we all work hard to continue serving our students in new ways.
The decision to move to distance learning was not made lightly. As new challenges arise, we must maintain focus on what’s most important, providing a quality education while helping our students become exemplary physicians and nurses. Please always remember to treat each other with grace and understanding, whether we are interacting in person, via the telephone or a digital platform.
We anticipate this change to be temporary and look forward to seeing our students in Antigua once again in the near future.
Dr. Adedayo Akande
University of Health Sciences Antigua
