The Caribbean Accreditation Authority for Education in Medicine and other Health Professions (CAAM-HP) is an accrediting body for medical, veterinary, and dental schools in the 15 member nations of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM).[1] CAAM-HP was established in 2003.[2]

The US Department of Education's National Committee on Foreign Medical Education and Accreditation (NCFMEA) recognizes CAAM-HP as a standard comparable to the standards used in medical schools in the United States.[3]
