SGU Admission Policies


Students in the Pre-Clinical program have been reviewed and accepted by the Faculty Student Selection Committee of the  Admission’s Committee for the School of Medicine into the 5, 6 or 7-year medical program according to the educational achievement documented by the Admission’s Committee.

Students entering the 6- or 7-year MD program are required to participate in the Professional Learning Institute (PLI). The PLI is designed to help students new to the St. George’s University School of Medicine in the process of building a professional identity as a medical student.


Pre-Clinical students, especially those admitted to the first year of the Pre-clinical Program, may choose to obtain a degree of Bachelor of Science in Medical Sciences in addition to the Medical Degree. Students who wish to pursue the Baccalaureate/MD combined degree must notify the Office of the University Registrar (OUR) and the Pre-Clinical Program Office in writing during the first semester of matriculation. Students may request the opportunity to simultaneously complete the Bachelor of Science Degree later in the program; however, they may be precluded from doing so due to program and time restraints.
