Make an impact and join close to 1,800 DVM graduates practicing in the US and 16 countries around the world.
Your desire to help animals led you to veterinary school – but your passion and persistence are capable of an even larger impact. At St. George’s University (SGU), students not only become skilled Doctors of Veterinary Medicine (DVMs) — but they also learn to make a world of difference.
Our students work directly with animals during the very first year of the program — a year ahead of most US schools. We further strengthen that connection between students, animals, and the medical community at large by providing international oppurtunities and context for the effort to transform global health from the ground up.
We are a leader in the One Health, One Medicine initiative, and our AVMA-accredited programs have given students international experiences at more than 29 affiliated universities worldwide.They’ve allowed hundreds of veterinarians to graduate from SGU every year, going on to practice in communities across the US and the world. You can be the veterinarian that brings a global perspective to yours.

Get an immediate sense of life as a vet.
SGU rises above the standards for US schools by bringing students closer to the animals they love before other programs can. You’ll be able to scrub in on surgeries and work in state-of-the-art large-animal facilities, marine stations, and small-animal emergency clinics.
Graduate and get to work.
With AVMA-accredited programs, SGU graduates are eligible to seek licensure and work in the US and Canada, and they are well prepared to pass the NAVLE and become licensed. This is where your career begins.
Impact global health and your community.
Global health depends on pandemic prevention, disease control, and worldwide ecosystem health. An SGU education emphasizing the One Health, One Medicine initiative shows you how to join that effort, even as an individual vet in your hometown clinic. With 29 affiliated schools all around the world, you’ll approach the animal kingdom in ways few stateside schools offer.

“I loved that we got so much hands-on experience, including many, many spays and neuters in our second and third years. They really wanted us to be good doctors, and it was helpful that we could touch the animals and interact with them. With the relatively short time the professors had with us, it was clear they really cared and wanted to teach us everything possible.”
An enriching education by land and sea.
