University to offer Dual Degree BS/MD Program for Premed Students
St. George’s University has joined with Mahidol University International College (MUIC) in Salaya, Thailand, to offer students an opportunity to obtain a dual BS/MD degree. Through the partnership, qualified students will be able to pursue a career in medicine at St. George’s University (SGU) following successful completion of three years of premedicine at Mahidol University.
“We are excited to offer this opportunity to premed students at Mahidol University,” said Margaret Lambert, Dean of Enrolment Planning at St. George’s University. “Mahidol University is consistently ranked as one of the top universities in Thailand, and its International College, like St. George’s University, is committed to the benefits of a truly international education. We are a good fit for the training of doctors in the 21st century. We look forward to the addition of the MUIC students to the fabric of our True Blue campus.”
Applicants interested in the dual degree program must meet all admission requirements of Mahidol University (MUIC) and St. George’s University School of Medicine program. Once admitted to the dual degree program, and after successfully completing three years of undergraduate study at MUIC, qualified students will proceed to the first year of the medical program at St. George’s University. Upon successful completion of the first year of the MD program at SGU, qualified students will have fulfilled the requirements for a Bachelor of Science degree from MUIC and will be eligible to complete the remaining three years of study at SGU leading to the MD degree.
In addition to the partnership with Mahidol University, St. George’s maintains partnerships in the United States and United Kingdom with the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT)/Albert Dorman Honors College, St. Michael’s Medical Center, Caldwell College, Franklin Pierce University, St. Thomas University, University of the Sciences, Monmouth University, Widener University, Northumbria University, Abbey DLD Group of Colleges, and University of the West of England.
