COVID holding up med school checks
The COVID-19 pandemic has led to delays in the Barbados Accreditation Council’s certification of some medical schools.
Executive director Lisa Gale made that admission during their virtual fair yesterday but said she was hoping the issue could be rectified as soon as possible.
Gale said although they were facing some challenges completing assessments of medical schools because of the pandemic, they were still committed to ensuring they can work with educational institutions to prepare students for the world stage.
“One example is the delay in finalising assessments for our medical schools, which is currently impacting the council’s ability to complete its re-registration process. As the sole body responsible for quality assurance and quality- enhancement in post-secondary and tertiary education and training in Barbados, adapting has not been an easy task,” Gale said. (TG)
