TRANSFER AND AWARD OF CREDIT

PRECLINICAL PROGRAM

The five-, six-, and seven-year MD programs are set up to accommodate students from a variety of model of educational models. Admissions will determine appropriate entry to the 4, 5, or 6 year MD Program based on academic history, therefore transfer credit is not required.

BS/MD COMBINED DEGREE PROGRAM

Where applicable, Pre-Clinical students who wish to obtain the Combined BS/MD Degree may apply for advanced standing or transfer credits. Transfer or advanced standing credits can be awarded provided that a minimum of 71 credits towards this degree is completed at St. George’s University through the completion of the prescribed curriculum for Year 3 of the Pre-Clinical program and Year 1 of the MD Degree. Credit is granted only for documented appropriate coursework and will be assessed on an individual basis based on the “Advanced Standing and Transfer Credit Policy” of the Pre-Clinical Program Office. Only courses with a grade obtained of “C” or better will be considered for credit. Transfer Credits from Academic Partner Institutions will be assessed according to the agreement of cooperation in place at the time.

Each candidate is responsible for ensuring that all related documentation including official transcripts, grading policy and official course descriptions are sent directly to the Office of the University Registrar (OUR), who will then forward all documentation to the Pre-Clinical Program Office for assessment.
