Student Organizations


As future physicians, we must train ourselves to remain curious, and there is no greater “why” than the infinite realm of space above us.

Duration of space flights evolved from hours to multiple months. Great progress has been made in space flight duration and we are not so far from long term stays such as mission to mars.
But, still our knowledge about long term effect of outer space on human physiology and development is very limited.

The Aerospace Medicine Society (AMS) aims to integrate the dynamic field of medicine with the everchanging domains of aerospace. By doing this, we hope to inspire curiosity in the medical students at St. George’s University (SGU) and foster the students’ interest in Aerospace Medicine.

The AMS exists to sustain students’ interests in Aerospace Medicine throughout their basic science and clinical years, with the goal of providing students with valuable knowledge and opportunities to benefit them throughout their career. The AMS will also focus on service to the Grenadian community through fundraisers, community service, and volunteering opportunities.



As an International chapter of the American Medical Students Association, this group promotes active improvement in medical education, world health care delivery, and the enhancement of social, moral and ethical obligations of the medical profession. The St. George's University chapter has on average 600 AMSA members- making us one of AMSA's largest chapters.



The Business in Medicine club aims to integrate the worlds of business and entrepreneurship with the field of medicine. There is an increasing need for physicians to adapt to the growing relationship between the medical industry and business industry that it belongs to. This club will encourage all medical students to understand the logistics and management required to run a medical practi¬¬ce, establish their role in the hospital setting, or even obtain a position on a medical board.

We aim to highlight and develop the pivotal skills of professionalism, ethics, public speaking, entrepreneurship, knowledge about health insurance companies and the government impact on medicine. Additional areas of focus consist of developing team building and leadership skills, which encourages students to provide a comfortable workplace environment. Emphasizing the importance of knowing when to lead, when to let others lead, and having the ability to inspire others to lead, will altogether provide a better cohort of future physicians.



The mission of the Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) Club is to foster an understanding and awareness of the multitude of complementary and alternative medical practices. The club hopes to allow students an outlet to critically review and discuss new research, and to develop these abilities into clinically relevant and useful skills.

The Dermatology Interest Group (DIG) was nationally founded with the purpose of providing support for students considering a career in Dermatology. It will provide opportunities for students to form productive relationships between other students, residents, and program directors on topics pertinent to a career in Dermatology as well as foster a forum for communication and accurate information exchange.

The Chapter at St. George’s University School of Medicine is dedicated to the recruitment, success, and retention of students interested in a field of Dermatology as a specialty, sub-specialty, or area of research. Contributions will be made to the surrounding community through the utilization of members’ training and subsequent skills.


Students from a variety of backgrounds choose to join the EMC to learn more about Emergency Medicine, help the local Grenadian community, and get a jumpstart on their clinical years through several hands-on workshops. The club regularly invites guest speakers to talk with students about the field of Emergency Medicine, obtaining residencies, and recent advances that have been made in the field. All students are welcome to join.



In medicine, we truly are standing on the shoulders of giants. It is important to recognize the pioneers who inspired us, their contributions and re-assess and re-evaluate their theories, to allow us to think deeper and more critically as physicians. But history also teaches us humility because there were many dead ends and mistakes done in the past by extremely brilliant people. People have fallen many times, only to get back up and prevail. By allowing students to explore the history behind the science, and all of its controversies, it will only further promote students to become better critical thinkers by imploring the skills of the great scientists, historians, and philosophers before us. We aim to create a community at the St. George’s School of Medicine to further study and evaluate the History of Medicine and the strength it plays in developing critically thinking yet empathetic physicians today.
