The All Saints University School of Medicine reassured the Government and People of Dominica that they will be returning to the island by May 2018. This was done at a cheque presentation and discourse with the President of the All Saints, Dr Joshua Yusuf and the Prime Minister of the Commonwealth of Dominica, Roosevelt Skerrit, on December 19, 2017.
It was hoped that the students would have returned in January 2018 for the Winter Semester; however, due to shortage of rooms, the school has projected its return for May 2018. President of the School, Dr Joshua Yusuf asserted that students will return to the island in phases, during the Winter Semester, & all students will be back on Island by May 2018.
To show their continued support and desire to invest in the country, the All Saints University School of Medicine made a donation to the Government of Dominica in the amount of ECD $100,000, to help Dominicans with relief efforts. Since October, all staff have been retained and are working at the Dominica Campus, although the students have been temporarily relocated to St Vincent. Work on the Warner Expansion is expected to continue in the course of next year.
The University is asking all persons with apartments for rent, to kindly contact the school, so that the number of rooms for housing students and faculty can be achieved in a timely manner. Their contact numbers are (767) 440-5220 or (767) 245-2643.
The University wishes all Dominicans the very best for the end of 2017 and for 2018. Sincerest sympathies were also extended to all who lost family members and property during the Hurricane Maria ordeal.
