Ramaiah Group of Institutions and St. George’s University are working together to enable aspirants from India and around the world to obtain an internationally recognized degree and practice medicine in the US, UK, or India.
Start your path to a Medical Degree (MD) without leaving India
We will conduct the full Fall 2020 term exclusively via online distance learning for all students enrolled in the SGU/Ramaiah five-year pathway at Ramaiah. Based on the complexities and challenges of the persistent global COVID-19 outbreak, we have reached the conclusion that this decision is best for our students and community. We are hopeful all students will be able to return to live teaching on campus in January 2021, conditions permitting.
Join the no.1 provider of international doctors in the US With 94% success rate in matching to residency, SGU has over 18,000 MD graduates (including 300+ alumni from India) who practice medicine in the US, UK, and more than 50 countries around the world.
Why Wait to receive a NEET allotted place to a Medical School?
You can start our 5 year MD program this September, and if you’re subsequently accepted and enroll in a medical school in India with a NEET allotted place before Dec 2020, we’ll refund your tuition and administrative fees.
There’s no downside. You get a jump on your career and we get the satisfaction of knowing we helped you like we’ve helped so many other students become a doctor.
Contact SGU today and turn your dreams of medical school into reality.

From New Delhi to Grenada to New Jersey and now Omaha, my SGU journey can be best described as both humbling and gratifying. Not only did SGU enable me to fulfill my dreams and aspirations, it also allowed me to make lifelong relationships with people I met during my journey.

“Despite the fact that the world in general, and India in particular, is becoming more individualistic, it is our mission to continue promoting the ‘inclusive excellence’, which reflects our commitment to the vision of our founder, Dr M.S. Ramaiah. With this in mind, our Medical College was established in 1979, and now ranks amongst the best 20 Medical Colleges in India. We are proud of the fact that our Medical College has received a Gold ranking by the QS World Rankings, and is recognized and accredited by the Medical Council of India (MCI).
We believe that the true potential of the new generation of medical aspirants can only be realized by training them in the skills that make them employable, in India and internationally. While relentlessly driving healthcare innovation in India, we have been actively partnering up with distinguished universities, to ensure that we offer an internationally competitive education. Our association with St. George’s University was the logical next step for us, and enables medical aspirants to pursue a top-quality international medical education degree pathway that is fueled by the spirit of investigation, discovery, and intellectual exchange. We look forward to seeing the next generation of Indian doctors graduating from this program, and contributing to the advancement of healthcare in the US, India, and other countries.”

“The world is facing a primary care physician shortage – from the largest hospitals in London, New York, and Delhi, to community clinics in rural Kenya. St George’s University founded its world-class School of Medicine in 1976, established to be a top center of international medical education, drawing students and faculty from 140 countries to study medicine in Grenada, and practice medicine in more than 50 different countries around the world. Today, the University’s more than 20,000 graduates include physicians, veterinarians, scientists, and public health and business professionals across the world.
Our highest purpose is education and there is no better education than one that is truly international. The University is affiliated with educational institutions worldwide, including in the United States and the UK, and we are delighted to have found a great association with Ramaiah Group of Institutions in India. With Ramaiah University of Applied Sciences’ outstanding track record for innovation and great University ranking in India, we are delighted to be associated with this distinguished institution to offer medical students in India a truly international medical degree pathway, which offers a strong opportunity for practicing medicine in the US, UK, or India.”
