EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT BECOMING A PHYSICIAN

Students with a broad range of life and work experiences are good for medical education and the delivery of health care. Individuals who enter SGU with various backgrounds, experiences, and talents are among our most successful students and help us contribute to a physician workforce that meets the demands of an increasingly diverse patient population.

Career changers are often concerned about their MCAT score and GPA, but at SGU we know that you are more than your test scores. Our admissions staff and committee members look at every applicant as a future doctor. Your life experiences, personal attributes, and academic metrics are used holistically to evaluate your candidacy with the intent of creating a richly diverse applicant pool and student body.

Every prospective student is assigned a personal admissions officer who will coach, guide and encourage you every step of the way. Our dedicated admissions officers will work with you from the moment you start your application through your first day of classes. We will provide the information, encouragement and strategies to make your dream of becoming a doctor a reality.

In gratitude for all that our U.S Armed Forces have sacrificed, we are offering our Veteran Grant to School of Medicine students entering our four year MD program. This grant is awarded to Veterans of the U.S Armed Forces after admission to St. George’s University School of Medicine. The award is up to $50,000 and students are automatically reviewed for this award at the time of admission.

In addition to the Veteran Grant, St. George’s University is a participant in the Department of Veteran Affairs Educational Programs. Students who were a uniformed service member, veteran, veteran’s dependent, surviving spouse, or child of a deceased veteran, and are registered in the MD Program are eligible for VA Benefit.

Worried because you haven’t been in a classroom recently? No problem. Great support is the foundation of our students’ academic success. SGU provides custom-tailored support to ensure you reach your goal of becoming a doctor. From time management strategies to test taking skills and stress management, our Department of Educational Services is a central and established part of the academic culture at SGU.

Embarking on your medical school journey not only affects you, but also impacts the lives of those closest to you, including significant others and children. At SGU, we understand the importance of making the transition as easy as possible, which is why we offer married housing and provide recommended off-campus housing options for families. SGU also offers a robust support network through the Significant Others Organization (SOO).

In nearly four decades, we have graduated more than 18,000 physicians to the global health care system and are the #1 provider of doctors into first-year US residencies for the last 12 years combined.* In fact, in 2021, SGU students and graduates obtained a record number of residency placements, with 1,080 US  residencies secured…and counting.**

WHY WAIT

You can start our MD program this August, and if you’re subsequently accepted and enroll into an MD or DO program at a US or Canadian medical school the following fall, we’ll refund your SGU tuition and administrative fees.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Will the August 2021 term start in person or online?

All students in the School of Medicine will be welcomed back to in-person learning on campus in Grenada for the August term.

Our priority is protecting the health of our students, and that of the Grenada community, by preventing the spread of the disease. As part of our plan for a safe return to campus life, COVID-19 vaccinations will be required for all students, faculty, staff, and administrators on campus. We urge all students who have an opportunity to get fully vaccinated to do so as soon as possible. We remain committed to providing you with all the resources and support needed to be successful.

Will virtual learning be an option?

While our expectation is that all students will eventually return to campus, we also recognize that the pandemic, travel, and vaccination delivery is an evolving situation. Although our goal is to return all students to in-person learning as quickly as possible, we will be reasonable in our consideration of exceptions to in-person education and temporary use of online education for the fall term.

An option for continued online learning will be made available under the following circumstances:

  • Lack of access to vaccinations in the country where you currently reside
  • Lack of travel visas, passports, and flights from some countries
  • Other situations, hardships, and reasons that may require students to remain online for the August term.

Information on how to request the temporary online pathway will be available in the weeks ahead.

We remain committed to providing students with all the resources and support needed to be successful, and to remaining flexible regarding the in-person learning requirement and the dates of arrival in Grenada through the fall.

We are devoted to helping our students so that no student loses time or progress on their education.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there have been disruptions in the administration of the MCAT examination. Will SGU make any changes to the application requirements as a result of these disruptions?

While SGU School of Medicine requires the MCAT for admissions generally, we recognize the disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic may have interfered with your ability to take the MCAT. Due to these disruptions, applications for the April and August 2021 terms may be submitted without a MCAT score. For SGU School of Medicine applicants who have tested, MCAT scores should be sent to SGU.
