Middle Eastern Medical Students at St. George's University Secure US Residencies
 

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 27, July 2021:   Nine Middle Eastern medical students from St. George’s University (SGU) School of Medicine in Grenada have been appointed to begin their residency positions at prestigious US medical hospitals and health centers this summer. The students will make an undeniable impact on healthcare.

St. George’s University, the premier choice in Caribbean medical schools, has evolved into a top center of international education, contributing over 18,000 physicians to the global physician workforce, with students, graduates, and faculty from over 150 countries. SGU graduates have practiced in every state in the US, as well as in more than 50 countries, including UAE, Lebanon, and Egypt.

According to a recent report from the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB), 11,627 SGU graduates were licensed to practice medicine in the US in 2019, making it the largest source of doctors for the entire US workforce—ahead of any other US or international medical school. 
 
“We stand back and marvel at the outstanding work being done by our graduates in all corners of the US and the world,” said Dr. G. Richard Olds, president of SGU. “The impact that they have made—and will continue to make—on patients, their families, and their communities is truly immeasurable.”
 
In 2021, more than 1,080 SGU graduates will begin their residencies across the United States, marking the seventh year in a row in which SGU was the number one provider of new doctors to the US healthcare system per data as of April 2021. They’ll enter 21 different specialties ranging from neurology and orthopedic surgery to pathology and anesthesiology. 

Every healthcare system and patient population is slightly different. SGU recognizes these differences matter, so students can choose to complete clinical rotations in one of over 70 affiliated hospitals and health centers in the US and the UK.
 
“We are proud of the impact that our graduates have had in the US and around the world,” said Dr. Richard Liebowitz, vice chancellor of SGU. “As a university, we look forward to providing a sturdy foundation for our students to become well-equipped, well-rounded physicians for many years to come.”

For SGU, allowing flexibility for international medical students just makes sense, with entry points available for students from any education system around the world. Students also have a unique opportunity to begin their medical career in Grenada, the UK, or India.
