Postgraduate Records

St. George’s University School of Medicine has a continuing commitment to its graduates and other former students. The services of the Office of the University Registrar include assistance to graduates who wish to sit for qualifying examinations, obtain licensure, secure postgraduate training programs, and achieve employment. The Office of the University Registrar maintains the records of all graduates; certifies their medical education; and sends transcripts, letters of recommendation, and other supporting documentation to places of employment, educational institutions, and government agencies. Records are released only upon the written request of graduates and the subsequent authorization from the Office of the University Registrar.

This office also provides access to information needed to address the examination and licensing requirements of state and national boards. Although it is not a placement service, the office acts as a liaison between graduates involved in job searches and medical institutions that have indicated an interest in employing graduates of the University. Statistical data about postgraduate training, examination results, medical specialty associations, and licenses are kept on file and are continually updated to enhance postgraduate professional contacts. Much of this information is received from graduates voluntarily. The University urges its graduates to report regularly all accomplishments, such as postgraduate residency positions acquired, licenses issued, and specialty board certifications. The Office of the University Registrar works in conjunction with the Alumni Association to help graduates keep in touch with one another and to inform them of developments within the University. It is the University’s goal to provide a basis of support that allows this network of graduates to continue to benefit from the trust and cooperation they share as members of the St. George’s University community.
