St. George's University School of Medicine
St. George’s University School of Medicine pioneered the concept of international medical education and stays at the forefront of medical education as the world becomes smaller. St. George’s University was the first private medical school in the Caribbean, the first to be accredited by the Caribbean Accreditation Authority for Education in Medicine and Health Professions (CAAM-HP), and the leader in the first time scores on the United States Licensing Examinations.
In its 33 years of academic achievement, St. George’s University School of Medicine has contributed nearly 11,000 physicians who are licensed in all 50 states and Canada and have practiced in over 45 countries of the world. The School of Medicine’s faculty hails from over 30 countries. There are almost 300 Basic Sciences faculty at the True Blue campus in Grenada, and over 600 clinical faculty at the School of Medicine’s over 50 affiliated hospitals and clinical centers* in the United States and the United Kingdom. The international faculty and staff of the Department of Educational Services are dedicated to student and graduate success.
The majority of St. George’s University School of Medicine students have come from the top 100 US schools, with over 500 students from Ivy League schools in the United States, and nearly 7,000 graduated from universities in the US News and World Reports list of Top National Universities 2010.
The University offers advanced, premedical, and preveterinary degrees in its Schools of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine, and independent and dual graduate degrees in the sciences, public health, and business. Undergraduate degree programs are also available through its School of Arts and Sciences.
The premedical program is delivered on the True Blue campus in Grenada, West Indies. These years of study incorporate basic undergraduate courses in reading, writing, and mathematics with the necessary science foundation courses for a well-rounded education.
The premedical program curriculum is designed as a firm foundation for the advanced studies offered later in the four-year Doctor of Medicine degree program. The Committee on Admission places the applicants into the first, second, or third year of the premedical program according to the applicant’s academic background. Throughout all years of the premedical program, there is a strong focus on study skills development and academic enhancement.
Students who complete the premedical program with a grade point average (GPA) of 3.2 or better and pass the Premedical Science Comprehensive Examination (PMSCE) are promoted into the first year of the four-year Doctor of Medicine degree program. Additionally, any US citizen or US permanent resident is required to take the MCAT examination and have the scores reported to the school prior to enrolment in the Doctor of Medicine.
Students who do not hold a first degree and who wish to obtain a bachelor’s degree in the course of their studies may be eligible to do so. Evaluation of prior educational background will determine eligibility and appropriate placement within the BS/MD program.
Doctor of Medicine Degree
The Doctor of Medicine degree program is delivered over four calendar years. During the first two years, which cover the Basic Medical Sciences, students study on the True Blue campus in Grenada. During the last two Clinical Years, students move on to study at the University’s Clinical Centers* and affiliated hospitals in the United States and/or the United Kingdom. Students are also given the option to enroll in the Keith B. Taylor Global Scholars Program, which offers the first year of the Basic Medical Sciences on the campus of Northumbria University in the United Kingdom.
The first two years of the Doctor of Medicine degree program concentrate on the traditional basic science disciplines. Laboratory experience is an integral part of these first two years, along with small group discussions designed for problem-based learning and early integration of the Basic Medical Sciences into the clinical experience.
The St. George’s University approach to clinical education provides students with the opportunity to learn medicine in some of the best and best-known hospitals in the world. Located in the United States and the United Kingdom, some of these hospitals have been designated by the University as Clinical Centers. A Clinical Center is a hospital or group of hospitals able to provide at least four of the five core rotations, train 80-100 students at all times, and offer sub-internships, primary care, and elective rotations. The Clinical Centers allow students to complete all of their clinical training at one site if they wish.
During the Clinical Years, we emphasize responsibility, maturity, and compassion as important attributes in the development of professional excellence. Students are expected to learn how to conduct themselves in the professional role of physician and are judged on their ability to take responsibility, relate to and work harmoniously with professional colleagues, exhibit maturity in conduct on the wards, and demonstrate the disposition of a mature and qualified physician.
Bachelor of Science/Doctor of Medicine (BS/MD) Dual Degree
The dual Bachelor of Science/Doctor of Medicine Degree program is designed to meet the needs of our students in the premedical program who do not hold a first degree and wish to earn a Bachelor of Science degree at St. George's University.
Students who enter the University in the first or second year of the premedical program may earn a bachelor’s degree upon acceptance into and completion of their first year of the medical program.
Students who directly enter the third year of the premedical program (with Advanced Levels or an International Baccalaureate) have to complete additional coursework to be eligible for this degree. Applicants interested in this program will be evaluated for transfer credit.
Only qualified students who are enrolled in the BS/MD degree program will be eligible to receive a Bachelor of Science degree at the end of the first year medical program at SGU.
