SGU Tops US Performance on USMLE Step 1

In 2010, SGU’s US and Canadian medical students surpassed medical school students in the US and Canada with a 94% first time pass rate on the United States Medical Licensing Examination Step 1. In fact, overall, SGU first time USMLE takers – students who were from 49 different countries – equaled the first time pass rate of 92% in the US and Canada for 2010.

“We are thrilled to be able to report this result,” said Chancellor Charles Modica of St. George’s University.  “St. George’s has always had a strong commitment to teaching and learning - and this result only serves to reinforce our focus on training excellent doctors for the US, Canada, and the world.”

Margaret Lambert, Dean of Enrolment Planning considers St. George’s unique Department of Educational Services a cornerstone of the success SGU students have seen when taking the USMLE.  “SGU’s success with student support services is borne out in the results we have achieved,” remarked Dean Lambert.  “Our faculty is committed to excellence in teaching, both in Grenada and at our Global Scholars Program in the UK, and our commitment to student success supports our mission as an institution of teaching excellence.”
