School of Medicine Catalog
A Global Education
This is St. George’s University, an educational institution that leads by example. More than 40 years ago, the University broke ground by founding the first truly international center of medical education. Creating this new opportunity gave our charter students, and all those who have followed, the chance to benefit from an international curriculum that not only helps students become doctors, but inspires them to become examples of all the great things medicine can do. To date, St. George’s University has graduated more than 19,000 physicians who have practiced worldwide and whose good works are testaments to this belief.
Graduate Degree Programs
The general policies, procedures, and requirements to earn a master’s degree at St. George’s University follow those of the School of Graduate Studies (SGS) of the University. The specific program in each department is defined by the rules developed within these SGS guidelines by the departmental Graduate Affairs Committee (GAC). The chair of the GAC is responsible for administration of the departmental program. Many departments will offer a research/ thesis program and some may elect to also offer a non-thesis or capstone program. Three graduate degree programs—the MPH, MBA, and MSc in Biomedical Research—are currently offered online. While other degree programs have many courses available online, they are predominately taught in-house.
Independent Graduate Degree Programs
Dual Degree Programs
St. George’s University School of Medicine offers several paths for medical students to increase their knowledge in one area of medical study while pursuing the Doctor of Medicine degree.
General Rules and Regulations
Clinical Centers and Affiliated Hospitals
In order to provide select students with different avenues for pursuing their academic career goals, St. George’s University has developed a number of academic partnerships with other institutions of higher learning. These partnerships are designed to expand the number of entry tracks into SGU’s professional programs, and to broaden and enhance the educational experience. In addition, when the guidelines for continuation in these programs are met, they simultaneously serve to streamline the entry process into St. George’s University School of Medicine. More information can be found on the International Partnerships website.
Student Support Services
