The ten-year-old off-shore medical institution, Windsor University School of Medicine at Brighton Estate, is to expand.
Windsor President Dr. Srinivas Gaddam said the institution plans to construct a 1500-seat auditorium and new laboratories.
He said Windsor University School of Medicine will increase the number of cadavers from New York and disclosed that members of the New York State Accreditation Board are to visit the medical institution prior to issuing a license.
Dr. Gaddam said Windsor University School of Medicine is in discussion with Yale University to carry out research work in oral insulin and advances in diabetic care.
“Some research work is already going on in St. Kitts and Nevis through research grants,” he said.
Speaking at the recent opening of a new two-250 student classroom facility at the start of the new school year, Dr. Gaddam welcomed 300 new students bringing the student population at Windsor University to 1100.
Windsor School of Medicine relocated from the Turks and Caicos Islands with 8 students in 2000.
