Celebrating 40+ years of higher learning on the island of Grenada, no other medical school in the world provides more new doctors to the US healthcare system. In 2020, SGU placed more than 1,100 graduates into US and Canadian residencies.* St. George’s University is a dynamic center of higher education with a global network of academic, medical, and scientific collaborators in education, medicine, research, and science. Since opening in 1977, more than 21,000 graduates have gone on to successful careers in medicine, veterinary medicine, public health, science, and business, and have practiced in all 50 US states and more than 50 countries around the world.
Currently, more than 7,000 students from 140+ countries attend SGU and are taught by more than 2,300 esteemed faculty members recruited from across the world. SGU offers advanced, premedical, and pre-veterinary degrees in its Schools of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine, and independent and dual graduate degrees in the sciences, public health, and business. In addition, undergraduate degree programs are available through its School of Arts and Sciences.
Supporting the One Health, One Medicine philosophy, SGU’s programs are accredited and approved by many governing authorities, including the Grenada Medical and Dental Council (GMDC), and the Caribbean Accreditation Authority for Education in Medicine and other Health Professions (CAAM-HP), the regional accreditation authority. In addition, the School of Veterinary Medicine is fully accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association’s Council on Education, and SGU’s Department of Public Health and Preventive Medicine is accredited by the US Council on Education for Public Health—one of only a few non-US institutions to receive this coveted approval. SGU is affiliated with educational institutions worldwide, including the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and Ireland.
