Who we are
A Secretariat, mandated by the general membership was established with funding from the US and Canadian Chapters. It consists of a Board of Directors, supported by an Administrative Staff member. Based in Jamaica, the UWIMAA Secretariat serves as a liaison among all chapters of UWIMAA and the Office of the Vice Chancellor.
The Association originated in 1988 during the University’s 40th anniversary celebrations. It represented a coming together of several existing chapters established in previous years; Barbados Chapter (1984) Canadian Chapter (1985), United States of America (US) Chapter (1986), Jamaica Chapter (1987). Today the association boasts thousands of medical alumni among its membership.
