A world-class medical program, established in 1976.

Today, St. George's University is one of only two international schools accredited in all 50 states. Add to that our 96% USMLE first-time pass rate in 2016, US-DOE financial aid opportunities, and being the #1 provider of US residencies for the last seven years combined, and suddenly you realize why MD also stands for More Doctors around here.*

  • We pass the test

    Take smart, dedicated students, pair them with a rigorous, hands-on medical curriculum and what happens? You get very impressive, and consistent USMLE Step 1 pass rates. St. George’s University students who took the USMLE 1 for the first time in 2016 achieved a 96 percent pass rate, marking the eighth consecutive year that SGU’s overall pass rate surpassed 90 percent. The more than 1,100 SGU students taking the exam for the first time hailed from 46 countries over six continents.

Students are taught by an educational method based on the practical experience found in the clinical sites under careful supervision by practicing physicians.

The third year of the medical program consists of 48 weeks of core rotations. These are structured experiences required of all students, regardless of where they train. The core rotations consist of 12 weeks of Medicine; 12 weeks of Surgery; and six weeks each of Psychiatry, Pediatrics, Obstetrics/Gynecology, and Family Medicine. These core rotations traditionally form the educational foundation for all medical students regardless of future specialty.

Students must also complete additional clinical and coursework requirements, such as sub-internships and elective courses. It is through these sub-internships and electives that students typically choose the specialty that they will continue to study during post-graduate training. In general, students complete their core rotations before doing additional requirements and electives. Elective choices and schedules are arranged individually by students in consultation with the hospital administration.
