American Canadian School of Medicine: Jazz ‘N Creole partnership part of social impact

Dr. Stanley White

Dean of Campus of the American Canadian School of Medicine (ACSOM) Dr. Stanley White has said the decision to partner with organizers of the Jazz ‘N Creole Festival this year is part of the school’s social mission to create a positive impact in Dominica.

He was addressing a Jazz ‘N Creole Festival press conference this week.

According to him, besides being a prestigious event the festival is a premiere cultural event on the island celebrating food, music, and culture. Those elements all add to wellness which the school is proud to support.

“I suppose some of you might be thinking, what is a medical school doing sponsoring a music festival…?” He asked.

Dr. White continued, “It’s our social mission to make a positive impact in Dominica and this opportunity to partner with Discover Dominica to help support Jazz ‘N Creole 2024 is a heaven-sent opportunity for us to help give something back to the community and also to make sure that you are aware of what we are doing.”

 He added, “Also to allow our faculty of students to enjoy the occasion and understand the benefit of it.”

Furthermore, Dr. White said the school is looking forward to the wide variety of artistes who will be performing at the event.

The ACSOM opened its doors to students in August 2023 and part of its mission is to develop students into truly exceptional physicians who provide outstanding service to the community in which they live and work.

“We do this in two ways,” Dr. White stated. “We provide a first-rate medical education which is modeled on curricula delivered every day in top-tier US medical schools.”

He added that all the teachings are physician-led from day one, and the school is fully internationally accredited.

Meanwhile, Dr. White explained that the second part of the mission, which is to produce physicians making an impact in the community, “is part of our community mission and through that, we partnered with a variety of local organizations including educational organizations, health partners including the Portsmouth Hospital, commercial enterprises…”
