STUDENT GUILD PRESIDENT MESSAGE

Dear Students,

On behalf of The Student Guild of the Caribbean School of Medical Sciences, Jamaica (CSMSJ), I am excited to welcome all prospective, newly registered, and returning students. Sincere gratitude to the CSMSJ Administrative Staffs, Lecturers, and Dean of the Faculty of Medical Sciences for their commitments and pushes towards making CSMSJ a foremost Medical School not only in the Caribbean but world over there by making amazing learning opportunities available to diverse students all around the world.

To all new students, congratulations on your acceptance into such an undoubtedly prestigious and noble institution. I applaud you for embarking on this journey and for considering the medical

field as your career of choice to not just help people but positively impact lives through health care.  My fellow students, according to Jim Rohn, 2017 “motivation is what gets you started, commitment is what keeps you going”. I therefore implore you to make “Commitment" your watchword in the course of your studentship at CSMSJ.

To all returning students, cheers, you have successfully scaled another hurdle. Take a moment to reflect, appreciate your accomplishments, be proud of your growth and use them to fuel triumph over the unknown because I can assure you as life and death are a certainty so too are impediments. Be reminded, “Strength does not come from what you can do, It comes from overcoming the things you once thought you couldn’t” (Rikki Rogers, 2016).

To all students, I urge you to be unrelenting, meticulous, and enthusiastic, while ensuring that

you manage your time and take care of your well-being. Another key reminder is that “no man is an island, no man stands alone. Therefore, draw on the CSMSJ community of support available as the need arises and remember to extend help to others wherever or whenever possible. We are motivators of one another with our firm belief in team effort which will go a long way in helping us to achieve our ultimate goal of becoming a professional Medical Practitioner.

I also encourage you to maintain a balanced school life by getting involved with groups and other extracurricular activities while also excelling academically. My executives and I look forward to working with you as we prosecute our Guild calendar for the academic year. We anticipate a spectacular year, so be motivated, as you work efficiently to accomplish your goals

“The Caribbean School of Medical Sciences provides leadership, direction, and great skills. For determined people like you and me, to be healers of humanity. Each is given the books and tools to heal this world wherever we go” (Dr. N. Graham and team).
