St. George’s University (SGU) in Grenada, the leading international medical school in the Caribbean, is offering Indian doctors of the future the chance to study for an MD amongst students and faculty from all over the world.
The lack of spaces in Indian medical schools is well-documented, and is leading to many potential medical students looking abroad for the chance to qualify in their chosen field.
St George’s University’s is now the second largest source of doctors for the entire US workforce and its 20,000 graduates comprise physicians, veterinarians, scientists, and public health and business professionals. An MD course at St George’s University provides ambitious students with the chance to study and work in multiple countries as part of their training and beyond.
In addition to the University campus in Grenada, SGU also allows its MD students to apply to complete up to 50% of their degree in the United Kingdom at Northumbria University in Newcastle. The academic program in the UK is identical to the program delivered in Grenada - with the same content, examinations, and schedule, while providing students on the 5-year Doctor of Medicine program the opportunity to spend part of their degree program in the UK.
The University recognises the global challenges of physician shortages and offers a range of scholarships for UK and Commonwealth students, who can undertake clinical training in the US, UK, and Canada.
