A building on the Windsor University Saint Kitts campus

Windsor was founded in December 1998 on Grand Turk Island in Turks and Caicos by Dr. Srinivas Gaddam. Instruction began with a class of eight students. In 2000, the university relocated to Bird Rock,[citation needed] a town in the Saint George Basseterre Parish in Saint Kitts, with twelve students.

In 2004, Windsor acquired the Royal Plaza Inn in Carbondale, Illinois as a site for 5th semester training and announced plans to relocate the Bird Rock campus to the town of Cayon in the Saint Mary Cayon Parish. Windsor began construction on the new Cayon campus in 2006.[citation needed] Windsor acquired the Atrium Plaza hotel in Houghton Lake, Michigan and the Sidney Inn in Sidney, Ohio for use as additional 5th semester training sites in 2009 and 2010, respectively.

Currently the Windsor campus at Cayon contains six buildings on 42 acres (0.17 km2; 0.066 sq mi) of land. The most recent addition, the Robert Llewellyn Bradshaw building, was completed in September 2010, at which time the enrollment was approximately 1,100 students. Also in September 2010, Windsor announced plans for further expansion with new laboratories and a 1500-seat auditorium. The university enrollment was approximately 1,500 students as of October 2011.

The MD program at Windsor is a 10 semester course of study that consists of three semesters per calendar year. Semesters 1-4 are basic sciences semesters that are completed at the university's Saint Kitts campus. Semester 5 (Introduction to Clinical Medicine) is completed either at the Saint Kitts campus or at one of the university's three clinical education campuses in the United States. Semesters 6-10 consist of 72 weeks of clinical clerkships that are completed at either Joseph Nathaniel France General Hospital in Saint Kitts or hospitals in the United States.

Windsor also offers a 3 semester pre-medical program for high school graduates who have not completed the necessary prerequisites for the MD program.
