All Saints University, College of Medicine, commenced operations here in St Vincent and the Grenadines in September 2011 at Belair, with an additional Campus established at Arnos Vale in 2016.
All operations of the Dominica Campus of All Saints University, College of Medicine, were transferred to St Vincent and the Grenadines at the end of September 2017, as a consequence of the devastation caused by Hurricane Maria, to allow approximately four hundred (400) students of that particular Campus to continue their Medical Education.
