Overall, how satisfied are you with this program?

9 out of 10

What do you like most?

"The professors and curriculum are world-class. In our 4th (clinical) year, we pick one of 28 or so veterinary schools (mostly in the US, but several in other parts of the world) to complete our training at; almost all of my classmates and I felt like we were significantly better-prepared and often more knowledgeable than our counterparts at other institutions. This has been consistently reported for the last several years by St. George's clinical year students." Report Response

What are the facilities and clinics like (old/new, well maintained, etc.)?

"There is no teaching hospital in Grenada, which is why the 4th year has to take place at another school. There is a small animal clinic, small animal shelter (SPCA), large animal facility, local farms, and health clinics twice a year for students to get hands-on experience prior to 4th year. The facilities are adequate, but smaller in scale and less technologically advanced than their stateside counterparts." Report Response

How do students from this program do after graduation - are they adequately prepared for practice?

"They often out-perform their stateside peers during clinics and immediately after graduation." Report Response

What are rotations like?

"The clinical year (4th year) takes place at your choice of veterinary school. Popular choices include: UGA, North Carolina State, Cornell, University of Florida; but there are many more to choose from. In the last half of the third year, students have rotations through the local SPCA, small animal clinic, farm calls, surgery, and ER in addition to lectures. This gives students an idea of what to expect in clinical rotations." Report Response

How do students from this program do in the Match?

"My peers that applied for rotating internships and then residencies were very competitive." Report Response

Any other information you want to share?

"For some reason this school is left off many lists of best US veterinary schools. It probably is in large part due to the stigma that medical schools in the Caribbean still have. I wouldn't have even considered this school if the best veterinarian I knew hadn't graduated from here; however, after graduating I can confidently say that the education is world-class. I felt significantly better-prepared and more knowledgeable than just about every one of my peers at my clinical year school. If you are adaptable and adventurous enough to deal with moving to a small, developing island nation, then I cannot recommend St. George's University enough." Report Response
