The Heart Institute of the Caribbean (HIC), and the Association of Black Cardiologists (ABC), USA
will be hosting the annual International Masters of Medicine Conference and Trailblazer
Award at the Spanish Court Hotel in Kingston, Jamaica, on January 17-19, 2020.
Masters of Medicine 2020 will focus on advances in Medical Care and applications of those advances
in the care of patients in low resource nations through technology transfer and human capital development
under the theme "Medicine and Society". The aim of the conference is to explore the intersectionality
between society and medicine while exploring various structural, cultural and socioeconomic determinants
that mitigate access to care in developing countries.
The Masters of Medicine conference offers a unique opportunity to continue exploring mechanisms to
improve access, options and quality of care to all Jamaicans and strengthening mechanisms for development
of appropriate and sustainable healthcare infrastructures, options and systems to position Jamaica as a
preferred destination for health and medical tourism. We hope that you will join the robust attendance and
participation from the medical community and civic society that is expected as we embark on a very
consequential dialogue on the opportunities and future of healthcare and society.
Our diverse audience and particularly learning will make this a CONFERENCE OF A LIFETIME
