This partnership will allow a 2-way pathway for George Brown College graduates with direct admission to St. George’s Schools of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine.
St. George University (SGU) announced they entered a direct admission partnership with George Brown College. The program offers qualified George Brown University graduates immediate entry into St. George’s University Schools of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine.
“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.”
According to the release, to qualify for the program interested students must finish George Brown’s Pre-Health Science Pathway, submit 2 letters of recommendation, complete an interview, and meet all necessary admissions and grade requirements.
Students with a grade point average (GPA) of 3.2 will enroll in the 5-year Doctor of Medicine or Doctor of Veterinary Medicine program. Those with an average GPA of 3.4 and a competitive MCAT or GRE score will qualify for the 4-year Doctor of Medicine or Doctor of Veterinary Medicine program.
“We are excited to partner with St. George’s to help our students to pursue their career goals,” said Alex Irwin, director of 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 promising students to consider George Brown College.”
Qualified veterinary students will live on the St. George’s campus in Grenada. Their final clinical year will be with an affiliated hospital in either Canada, the United States, Australia, the United Kingdom, Ireland, or the Netherlands.
