Chancellor Charles R. Modica recently appeared on Forbes.com where he discussed the influx of US students enrolling in Caribbean medical schools like St. George’s University. Today, one in every four US doctors has been trained abroad. According to Modica, “There’s not enough room in US medical schools for all the medical students who would like to go and are worthy of going.”

In the past 10 years, St. George’s University’s application pool has risen 300% —compare that to an increase of only 140% in US schools. “They go to Grenada because they know St. George’s University will give them the best opportunity to come back to the United States and practice medicine,” Modica said.
