The American University of Barbados, School of Medicine opened a MEDICAL CLINIC on May 17th, 2019 on its campus (Old BET Building) in Wildey, St. Michael.

The clinic was inaugurated by Senator The Hon. Lucille C. Moe, Minister of Broadcasting and Public Affairs and Acting Minister of Education, Technological and Vocational Training. She applauded the medical school for its initiative of establishing a free medical clinic for the Barbadian community. She was happy to learn about the medical schools future plans leading to distribution of medicines free of cost to its patients and its intention to provide laboratory and radiology services in the next phase. In the pipeline, AUB also plans to establish a Lead Screening Center for early detection and prompt management of lead toxicity.

In conclusion, she spoke about the innovative teaching methods used in education today with the aid of technology and mentioned that she was much pleased to see that AUB as an institution embraces technology.

The medical clinic will be open to all seeking medical advice without any consultation charges and will operate from Monday to Friday between 9:00am to 2:00pm. This clinic is a first of its kind initiative by any business enterprise in Barbados and considering it our social responsibility, it would be an honour for us to serve the community.
