The National Accreditation Council of Guyana (NAC) is advising the public that the American Medical Institution is not registered with the NAC as is legally required for post-secondary and tertiary educational institutions operating in Guyana.

“Please be advised that the Chairman has not, on any occasion or for any reason, granted approval. This institution is not known to the NAC”, the statement said.

The NAC appealed to the public, especially prospective students, to check with NAC’s office which is located at 109 Barima Avenue, Bel-Air Park Georgetown, to ensure that their institution and programme of choice are registered with and approved by the NAC.
