Teesside partners with Grenada

New partnership allows Teesside medical and veterinary students to study at St George's University in Grenada

Posted by Rebecca Paddick | March 23, 2017 | International

Students at Teesside University will now be able to complete their medical or veterinary studies at St. George’s University in Grenada. 

A new agreement, the first of its kind between the two institutions, allows students who complete a pre-veterinary or pre-medical programme at Middlesbrough the option of earning their degree in the Caribbean.

This opportunity is open to any student who successfully completes their first year of the programme at Teesside, with a grade of 65% and over. If they achieve this, then they can enter the MD or DVM programme at St. George’s University School of Medicine or School of Veterinary Medicine.

Professor Paul Croney, Vice-Chancellor and Chief Executive of Teesside University, said: “We are committed to providing our students with opportunities to develop academically, professionally and personally, and this agreement with St. George’s will facilitate all three. As an international University with a worldwide reputation for excellence, Teesside is delighted to establish this link with St. George’s and enable our students to gain a high quality medical or veterinary degree at a prestigious institution, whilst gaining invaluable overseas study experience.”

This partnership will provide the opportunity for Teesside students to receive a top medical education, and through our affiliated hospitals and available selectives, they will have an opportunity to gain experience working in healthcare systems in a diverse range of cultures

Veterinary students will be eligible to complete the first three years of their training in Grenada and their final year at affiliated veterinary schools in the United Kingdom, Ireland, United States Canada or Australia.

Students in the MD program will be able to complete the first two years of their medical studies in Grenada and their final two years at affiliated hospitals in the United States, United Kingdom or Canada. They are also free to complete the final two years of their degree in Grenada.

Commenting on the Memorandum of Understanding, Dr G. Richard Olds, President of St. George’s University, said: “This partnership will provide the opportunity for Teesside students to receive a top medical education, and through our affiliated hospitals and available selectives, they will have an opportunity to gain experience working in healthcare systems in a diverse range of cultures, which is an essential component in the training of world class doctors and veterinarians.”
