UVI Launches Construction of SOM Facilities with Groundbreaking Ceremony

The University of the Virgin Islands held a groundbreaking ceremony today to commemorate the start of the construction of the University’s medical facilities. Virgin Islands leaders, UVI administrators, faculty, staff and the medical community attended the Medical School Classroom Building groundbreaking on March 2, on the St. Thomas Campus, which is the first of two ceremonies scheduled. A similar ceremony will be held for the Medical School Simulation Center on March 3, on the Albert A. Sheen Campus on St. Croix.

“The University leadership team for the Medical School project has been working extremely hard to bring this dream into reality,” said UVI President David Hall. “Our re-application process is fully underway and we plan to reapply for Liaison Committee for Medical Education preliminary accreditation by Aug. 1. Our goal is to open the Medical School in July 2017.” More information is available on the Media Section of the UVI website – - and from this direct link.
