St. George’s University, the first private Caribbean medical school, has over 18,000 graduates in medicine, veterinary medicine, public health, and other disciplines. Graduates of this school follow the SGU philosophy of global education and apply their education at home and abroad.
Here’s a glimpse of what it’s like to get a degree in this university:
St. George’s University School of Medicine graduates have long waited for the arrival of Match Day 2018. Finally, on Friday, the wait was over, and the celebration commenced.
Hundreds of SGU grads matched into highly competitive programs across the country including diagnostic radiology, anesthesiology, neurology, surgery, emergency medicine, and pediatrics.
Dr. G. Richard Olds, President of St. George’s University, toasted to more than 150 newly matched residents who convened at SGU’s annual Match Day Luncheon in New York City.
Among them were Phoebe and Tommy Martin, MD SGU ’18. They are both beginning their residency at the University of Arkansas in Little Rock this summer. The two met as students in Grenada and were thrilled to match into their top-choice program through the couples match. According to Tommy Martin, “It’s a dream come true to go to such an incredible hospital facility and to be able to go there together. We’re ecstatic. We could not be happier.”
Likewise, Pauline Nguyen, MD SGU ’18, was with her boyfriend and his father when the good news arrived. She had secured an OB/GYN residency at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center in New Jersey. Nguyen shared, “Once I saw OB/GYN, I was speechless.” She added, “It was the most incredible moment of my life.”
As they begin residency this summer, the 2018 class will join more than 15,000 physician graduates of SGU who have gone on to practice in all 50 US states and around the world.
