Curriculum

  • The first two years of the four-year MD program concentrate on the traditional basic science disciplines on the True Blue campus in Grenada.
    • Laboratory experience is an integral part of these first two years, along with small group discussions designed for problem-based learning and early integration of the clinical medicine into basic sciences at the General Hospital in Grenada.
  • The final two years focus on clinical sciences, with training at SGU’s clinical centers and affiliated hospitals in the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada.
    • Clinical training emphasizes responsibility, maturity, and compassion in the development of professional excellence. Students learn how to conduct themselves as physicians, take responsibility, work harmoniously with professional colleagues, and exhibit maturity.
