New path to medical or veterinary school for GBC students thanks to new partnership with St. George’s University in Grenada
A new international partnership opens opportunities for George Brown College students to pursue medical or veterinary school at St. George’s University in Grenada.
Qualified George Brown students who’ve completed the Pre-Health Sciences Pathway to Advanced Diplomas and Degrees program are now eligible to enter St. George’s University (SGU) School of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine thanks to a new partnership with the school.
“We are excited to partner with SGU to help our students to pursue their career goals,” said Alex Irwin, Director, Transitional Education at George Brown. “The direct admissions program provides a valuable pathway to medical school for our students and offers one more compelling reason for prospective students to consider George Brown College.”
To qualify for the transfer program, students who've completed the Pre-Health Sciences Pathway to Advanced Diplomas and Degrees program must do the following:
- Submit two letters of recommendation
- Complete an interview
- Meet all necessary admissions and grade requirements (grade point average of 3.2 to enroll in the five-year Doctor of Medicine or Doctor of Veterinary Medicine program, and grade point average of at least 3.4 and a competitive MCAT or GRE score to enter the four-year Doctor of Medicine or Doctor of Veterinary Medicine program).
“SGU is very proud of this new Canadian partnership, and we are looking forward to a strong and productive relationship for many years to come,” said Chuck Furey, Director of Admissions for Canada at SGU. “Our students will benefit greatly from the wonderful expertise across both institutions.”
