Hello Doctors, Doctors-To-Be!
The year 2020 has been a great start for us and a bright future for our students. At the start, we have got a 3-Year extension for the registration status of our University from the National Accreditation Council of Guyana, celebrated Republic Day of India with the High Commissioner of India to Guyana, and make a grand announcement too. Without further ado, let’s dive right into what we did and what’s next!

#1 Making 2020 The Year of CAAM-HP Accreditation: Message from Vice-Chancellor

Greetings, Dear Students!

As you all know, we started Lincoln American University with a vision to bridge the gap between means and the ability to become a doctor by making medical education affordable for all medical aspirants and ensure the quality of education by maintaining world-class standards. We empower you to craft your medical careers in the country of your choice and rightfully call our institution “Gateway To Your Dream Medical Career.”

From 2023 onwards, medical graduates only from CAAM-HP accredited universities in Guyana will be eligible for medical licensing examinations in the United States and Canada. To make sure that all of you get the opportunity to appear for such medical licensing examinations, we will be applying for CAAM-HP accreditation by March 31, 2020. We are confident that we will get our University accredited by CAAM-HP, well before 2023, delivering our promise of enabling you to practice medicine worldwide.

This is a shared goal, and in that, we need your contribution as well. You are not just the students of Lincoln American University but its ambassadors as well, who will carry its name wherever you go in the future.

While all the staff members have pledged to ensure 100% commitment, their best efforts, and full support for getting our University accredited by CAAM-HP, I ask you to pledge that you will put your best efforts to study and learn as much as you can and strive to become great healthcare professionals.

So, each one of us, let’s put our best feet forward to achieve our shared goal, be a part of something bigger than ourselves, and prepare for a glorious future of our institution and yours. While this task is not easy, together, we can do it.

Best wishes,
AVSM, VSM, and BAR (Retd),

Former Director-General of Medical Services (IAF),
Vice-Chancellor, Lincoln American University

#2 Celebrations: 71st Republic Day of India

#3 Collaboration with EDULANKA Study Abroad

#7 We Got NAC Registration For Three More Years

December 2019 was the time for the National Accreditation Council of Guyana (NAC) to review the registration status of the University for further extension. Seeing the quality of education, our commitment to improvement, and present progress, NAC has extended Lincoln American University’s registration status until December 2022.


We congratulate all the members and students for this milestone and commit to improve further and make medical education in Guyana better and accessible for every medical aspirant.



#8 Raising Leprosy Awareness on World Leprosy Day

Leprosy is an infectious skin disease and if not diagnosed and treated on a timely basis, can cause poor disabilities. Negatively affecting the lives of around 600 people on a daily basis, Leprosy has become a widely prevalent disease. About 4 million Leprosy cases were diagnosed until 2014.

To make people aware of Leprosy, every year, World Leprosy Day is observed worldwide on the last Sunday of January. On January 26, on the occasion of World Leprosy Day, we joined the good cause and made people aware of the serious disease so that they can beat Leprosy before Leprosy beat them. Here are 4 key points from our Leprosy 2020 campaign:

  • Leprosy is not an inherited disease
  • Leprosy is caused by bacteria
  • Leprosy can be prevented
  • Leprosy can be cured

To explore more about Leprosy, we encourage you to explore the Leprosy section on the official website of the World Health Organization.
