Nearly 1,800 graduates are practicing veterinary medicine around the world, and you could be right on their tails.
The St. George’s University network includes veterinarians who are making an impact in 49 states and 16 different countries. They provide care for a wide range of animals and leverage the practical skills they learned in school every day.
At SGU, preparing for a veterinary medicine career begins the moment classes do. Students gain valuable hands-on animal experience during their first year, sooner that at most US schools. Over the course of their education, students can complete comprehensive training in more than 20 different clinical specialties that range from anesthesiology to pathology. They also have the opportunity to gain a global perspective as they complete clinical training at 31 sites around the world.
And students have access to assistance should they need it. SGU offers an array of support services and resources, include tutoring, career guidance, language services, and more.

Start your 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 begin practicing.
The program is accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association Council on Education (AVMA COE), which qualifies graduates to seek licensure and work in the US and Canada. And SGU grads are well-prepared for the NAVLE – their pass rates rival those at US schools.
Impact communities around the world.
Global health requires disease control, robust ecosystems, and preventive measures. 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 more than 30 affiliated schools and training centers all around the world, SGU teaches you how to approach the animal kingdom in ways few stateside schools can.

“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.”
