University of Miami is coming to the Bahamas.
The Florida-based university will be establishing a School of Medicine in Grand Bahama, Prime Minister Perry Christie announced.
The announcement came after Christie was on the island for talks with Dean of the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, Dr. Pascal J. Goldschmidt.
The new facility will be a part of the College of the Bahamas, which will soon become the University of the Bahamas, and part of the new hospital in Grand Bahama.
Christie said Grand Bahama was the “best place” to have an extension of the University of Miami.
Establishing the school will be an investment of between $100 million and $150 million.
