Thanks to an international partnership with St George’s University of Grenada School of Medicine (SGU), we are proud to provide the opportunity for you to earn a Doctor of Medicine (MD) and complete up to 50% of your degree here at Northumbria University in Newcastle.

As an established world leader in medical education for more than forty years, St George’s University educates more international medical students than all US medical schools combined. They have contributed over 17,000 physicians to the global physician workforce with students, graduates and faculty from over 140 countries.

You will then complete one year of integrated basic sciences at St George’s technologically advanced campus in Grenada, which will lead onto your clinical rotations.

Recent advances have changed the way we understand medicine and have led to a constantly changing understanding of diagnostic and treatment modalities. Our modern evidence-based teaching in the first two years at SGU, will provide you with a strong foundation in the basic sciences and non-science subjects that underpin the practice of medicine.

The SGU-UK programme has been designed to deliver the knowledge, clinical skills, research interests and experience of a multitude of healthcare systems to enable you to practice medicine across all specialities with a global perspective.

The core modules and learning of the programme remain the same across both campuses, and have been designed to provide you with the opportunity to develop knowledge, skills and behaviour that underpin your future practice of medicine.

You will learn through lectures, laboratory classes, early patient contact and small group work. These class activities will enable you to critically appraise the disciplines that encompass both the science and art of medicine.

In 2017, St. George's University's US and Canadian students achieved a 95% first-time pass rate on the USMLE step 1.

Some classes are facilitated by junior doctors, with groups of 6-8 students to 1 doctor. This ensures you are provided with expert one-to-one tuition throughout your studies. Classes will be clinically focussed, and based on clinical cases, practice examinations and real medical history.

Due to the ever developing nature of medicine, our modern teaching is evidence based. Staff on the SGU-UK programme are consistently are the forefront of cutting-edge medical practice, and therefore ensure our teaching is constantly evolving alongside new treatment methods and diagnostics.

You will be based at our City Campus in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. The University has invested more than £250 million in its estate over the last decade and our campus is continuously evolving to create an environment where you can shape your future.

All students enrolled on the programme will live together at the Trinity Square accommodation in Gateshead.  A twenty-minute walk or quick Metro ride from our City Campus.

St. George’s University’s network of over 16,000 School of Medicine graduates have practiced in all 50 US States and more than 50 countries around the world.

St George’s campus in Grenada is located on the South-West tip of the island in the Caribbean True Blue Campus. The campus is always expanding to keep up with the latest technologies and to provide students with the best learning environment.

Upon successful completion of the SGU-UK programme here at Northumbria, you will be prepared to continue your studies at St George’s University Grenada. Beyond your time in Newcastle, you will be exposed to a variety of experiences working within different healthcare systems, which will enable you to practice medicine across all specialities with a global perspective.

SGU is the #1 international provider of physicians practicing in the US—more than any other non-US medical school in the world.*

Students of St George’s University who took the USMLE 1 for the first time in 2017 achieved a 95% pass rate, including a 95% pass rate for students from the United States and Canada. More than 1,100 SGU students taking the exam for the first time hailed from 47 countries over 5 continents.
