A global medical perspective.

And a strong and stable faculty of 800 members, with full-time professors with an average 10 years of service in the School of Medicine.

5,000 graduates can't be wrong.

Once they were students, but today our some 5,000 graduates are practicing medicine in all specialties and subspecialties around the world, and each one is proud they chose St. George's University as their medical school. Here, they learned from our unique belief that a medical school should do more than just make you a doctor. It should inspire you to become an example of all the great things medicine can do. This well-practiced philosophy has propelled our graduates to take their medical expertise to more than 35 countries around the world.

Ask Dr. Angela Huang.

Dr. Angela Huang, a native of Taiwan, is just one of our graduates practicing medicine around the world. After moving to the United States she went on to pursue her undergraduate degree in biochemistry from the University of Minnesota. She always knew she wanted to be a doctor. But when Dr. Huang applied to medical schools she found that being a non-resident made it difficult to get into U.S. school. St. George's University was the perfect fit. The diverse community, global perspective on medicine and world of opportunities inspired her to take the international experience even further.

Dr. Huang quickly found that opportunities afforded her, and other international students, set St. George's apart. For example, while most students choose to do their clinical training in the US, she chose to do her rotations in England, where she had the chance to experience yet another culture.

After graduation from St. George's Dr. Huang decided to return home to Taiwan, where she is now completing her residency in internal medicine at Cheng-Hsin Rehabilitation and Medical Center. She has been promised a fellowship in pulmonary medicine on completion of her residency. Dr. Huang especially enjoyed knowing that she could work either at home or abroad, and believes that someday she wants to continue to broaden her multi-cultured experience that blossomed at St. George's University.

When asked what her advice would be for potential St. George's students, Dr. Huang says: This is a decision you have to live with. You will work very hard even after you graduate. It is a life-long commitment. St. George's is good preparation for what you will be doing and I definitely recommend going there.

Are you up for the challenge?

No one said it's going to be easy. This is, after all, medical school. But you should know that our graduates perform on par with US medical students on the USMLE (United States Medical Licensing Exam) Step I exam, and occasionally even exceeding them (as happened in 2000). Additionally, of the U.S.-eligible graduates who apply for residency positions, 99 percent achieved the residencies they desired. To date, nearly 5,000 of our graduates have gone on to practice in over 35 countries around the world. At St. George's University, your success is our first priority, and to ensure you get the most out of the experience, we provide a myriad of student support services and scholarship opportunities. Plus, a comprehensive financial aid program to help you successfully navigate the process from application to graduation.
