(Now Grenada) – Forty-five years ago, St George’s University School of Medicine commenced classes on the True Blue campus, marking the start of a world-class institution that is now the largest source of doctors for the entire US workforce.
The past 45 years have provided incredible journeys, memories, accomplishments, and careers resulting in over 24,000 graduates in medicine, veterinary medicine, public health, the arts and sciences, and other professions and disciplines. SGU graduates are part of a strong network of graduates who have established careers in all 50 US states and more than 50 countries around the world.
“I am proud of this amazing institution that has also forged a path for generations of doctors to come — for the seventh year in a row, SGU secured more residency positions than any medical school in the world. Although the campus and the world around it, have changed in our 45 years, the University’s commitment to our mission of training high-quality physicians — and our commitment to the island of Grenada — remain the same,” said Dr Richard Liebowitz, vice-chancellor of St George’s University.
