• The SGU familiarization program brings together groups of education agents, school counselors and advisors to learn more about the School of Medicine. 
• As a part of the program relaunch, a delegation of education agents and school counselors from different parts of the world, including MENA, experienced all that SGU’s True Blue campus has to offer.
 
Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 3 August 2022: St. George’s University (SGU) in Grenada, in the Caribbean, has announced it has relaunched its popular SGU familiarization program, which was put on hold due to the pandemic. The program gives education agents and affiliate schools from different parts of the world the opportunity to tour SGU’s True Blue campus in Grenada, West Indies, and experience what it is like to be a medical student, along with seeing some breathtaking views and Caribbean sunsets.
 
The delegation saw the state-of-the-art simulation center utilizing the latest robotic technology, took a lesson on ultrasound, and engaged with the international student support services that are available at SGU. They also attended a panel discussion on student life that explored safety and security, housing options, local amenities, balance and wellness initiatives and other extracurricular facilities.
 
In addition, the education agents and school counselors attended a roundtable titled “The Medical Education Journey: From Basic Sciences to Residency”. The in-depth panel session featured three of SGU School of Medicine’s leading faculty members and aimed to highlight students’ professional pathways to life as a qualified physician.
 
Following the action-packed program, participants shared their experiences:
 
Philip Wenturine, University Counselor from Dubai American Academy, said “It was a fantastic week of learning from professors and staff at SGU, seeing students in action, and even getting to play doctor myself - seeing cadavers being dissected, learning how to conduct an ultrasound, and using virtual reality gear to get close up looks at major organs.”
 
Tegan Minzie, from NCUK, a university pathway provider in the UK shared: “The program enabled me to interact with the students to find out first-hand what it's like to study at SGU. As well as being able to see the campus and get a feel for what it would be like to live and study at SGU.”
 
Steven Cusumano, Director, International Student Recruitment, Strategic Initiatives, at St. George’s University, explained: “We are delighted to have welcomed back our successful SGU familiarization program. These valuable visits allowed education professionals to experience our School of Medicine from the perspective of students, discovering first-hand our holistic approach to medical education allied with the highest standards of pastoral care.”
