The Doctor of Medicine curriculum at SGU is a 4-year program. The first 2 years are ‘Basic Sciences’ phase while Years 3 and 4 are ‘Clinical Training’ years. Students have the option to study Year 1 on the SGU campus in Grenada or in the UK at Northumbria University. Year 2 must be done on the SGU campus in Grenada. Students are required to take USMLE Step I, and obtain the required score to proceed with clinical training. Once students are ready to start their clinical training, they will have the option of choosing from over 75 teaching hospitals in the UK and US for both the required and the elective medical specialties.


During the 4th year, students will be taking their USMLE Step II and Step II CK/CS. This is the second of three examinations required to be licensed to practice medicine in the US. They will also enter into The Match or The National Resident Match Program (NRMP) for the United States. This is where students will choose their specialty of interest and in which hospital they would like to train. This will mark the beginning of their work life in the field of medicine.
