Selecting the right medical school starts with choosing the preferred career destination. Aspiring doctors must have clarity on where they aim to practice medicine after graduation to choose a medical school that supports this goal. For those seeking to practice in the United States, you need to consider important criteria, including US residency placements, access to clinical rotations, and recognized accreditation.

US Residency completion is crucial for practicing medicine in the US.

Access to Clinical Rotations in the US Clinical rotations is a vital component of medical education, offering students hands-on experience in patient care. SGU’s extensive network of over 75 hospitals and health systems across the US and UK ensures students receive comprehensive clinical and ambulatory training. These rotations are pivotal in preparing students for US residency applications and providing them with the experience needed to thrive in the US healthcare system.

Accreditation is fundamental for eligibility in the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP). SGU School of Medicine is accredited by the Grenada Medical and Dental Council (GMDC), which is recognized by the World Federation of Medical Education (WFME). This accreditation ensures that SGU students are eligible to take the United States Medical Licensing Examinations (USMLE), participate in the National Residency Match Program (NRMP), and pursue licensure in the US.

SGU students have consistently performed well on the USMLE Step exams, which are required to practice medicine in the US. From 2018 to 2022, 6,000 international SGU students achieved a 90% pass rate on the USMLE Step 1 on their first attempt, reflecting the quality of SGU’s curriculum and the support provided to students.4
