With the human body being exposed to rarer forms of infections and diseases, the need of the hour is a stronger medical system in the world- one that is driven by innovation, great research and committed medical professionals.
According to the Association of American Medical Colleges, in the U.S. alone there is going to be a shortage of more than 100,000 doctors by 2032.
If being a doctor has been your dream for long, then you need to get there faster! But is there a way for you to do that? What if we told you that there was a way where you could
- Get an MD in just 5 years from finishing school
- Practice either in India, the US, or the UK after your degree
The answer lies in doing the new international medical program by St. George’s University (SGU), Grenada!
In collaboration with the Ramaiah Group of Institutions, SGU has launched this new international medical program that will start in September 2020. The program allows high school (10+2) graduates in India to obtain a Medicine degree in just 5 years, and start their studies at Ramaiah in India in their first year, before moving abroad to complete the remaining four years of the program in the UK, Grenada, and the USA.
What is the pathway?
A student starts his/her studies at Ramaiah Medical College in Bengaluru, India in the first year. For the subsequent years, he/she moves to the US, UK, and Grenada
From New Delhi to Grenada to New Jersey and now Omaha, my SGU journey can be best described as both humbling and gratifying. Not only did SGU enable me to fulfil my dreams and aspirations, but it also allowed me to make lifelong relationships with people I met during my journey.
