  1. It seems this school truly invests in their student’s futures. I’m confident that UMHS St. Kitts, with its technological cutting-edge of health care,is the right choice for me.

  2. It’s great that they are going to medical school. I’m actually starting at aSt Kitts Medical School this coming year, called UMHS St. Kitts, and I can’t wait. They offer a great education and where a great opportunity to reach my dream of being a doctor. I’m glad that these students have the same opportunity.

  3. I applaud and encourage one and all.

    One is a role model to others who dream of following in your footsteps.

    Remember to give back to fellow students through mentorship and support, and always keep Jackson State University close to your hearts.

    Let’s double the numbers the number of JSU Biology students accepted into medical school next year.
