St. George’s University School of Veterinary Medicine offers broad-based, contemporary programming specially designed for its international student body. Three years of study are completed on site in Grenada and a final year at an accredited affiliated school in North America or beyond. Upon graduation, each student determines the individual government entry requirements in the country or state where they intend to practice.

NAVLE Pass Rate
|YEAR||NAVLE PASS RATE|
The North American Veterinary Licensing Exam (NAVLE) is required for licensure to practice veterinary medicine in North America. Senior students and recent graduates must pass the NAVLE in order to gain licensure. The American Veterinary Medical Association Council on Education (AVMA-COE) requires a minimum pass rate of 80% for the institution to maintain full accreditation. St. George’s University School of Veterinary Medicine students have consistently exceeded this standard.
Government of Grenada Accreditation Board
The Government of Grenada continued the accreditation of St. George’s University School of Veterinary Medicine in 2013. The School of Veterinary Medicine is fully authorized by the government of Grenada to confer the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree upon those candidates who successfully complete its academic requirements.
