Burnett International Medical School To Open In St. Kitts

Basseterre, St. Kitts – Nevis
April 29, 2009 (CUOPM)

A new medical school will be officially opened in St. Kitts on Saturday.

Burnett International University School of Medicine and Health Sciences, formerly located in Haiti, will begin classes with 28 students next month at the Bird Rock Commercial Complex, Chancellor, Rev. Burnett Moise, an alumni of Windsor University here in St. Kitts said Thursday.

He said St. Kitts and Nevis Prime Minister, Hon. Dr. Denzil L. Douglas is among speakers at the official opening ceremony.

The medical school has relocated to St. Kitts due to the political instability in Haiti.

Rev. Moise’ wife, Dr. Carline St. Louis-Moise, is President. Both were educated in the United States and expressed a desire to establish the school in Haiti in answer to the need for training Doctors in Haiti in the English language, and the non-existence of a school of that type.

With the appointment of a local Board of Directors in September 2003, the University opened its doors in temporary facilities. On January 26, 2004, the University began instruction at JBE Complex in Tabarre, Haiti.

In April 2004, by action of the Board of Directors in conjunction with a group of doctors living in the USA, the University name was changed to Burnett International University School of Medicine and Health Sciences. Since that time, Burnett International University School of Medicine and Health Sciences has been providing knowledge and training in the art of Medicine and Nursing Care.

In view of the political instability in Haiti, BIU decided to transfer its campus to St. Kitts. On October 22, 2007, the university was accredited by the Board of Accreditation of St. Kitts and Nevis.

Burnett International University School of Medicine and Health Sciences offers a unique opportunity to students who wish to pursue a M.D. degree. The curriculum of Burnett International University School of Medicine and Health Sciences is consistent with that offered in the United States.

It is designed to prepare the students for successful completion of the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE). This University runs a four-year graduate medical program for now, with the objective of providing training in other fields such as Dentistry, Nursing, Mental Health, Pharmacy, Optometry and Veterinary Schools. The Burnett International University School of Medicine and Health Sciences is proud to provide first-rate education. It hopes to become one of the largest private research universities in the Caribbean.
