St George’s University summer school program
The Med/Vet Summer Leadership Academy at SGU offers high school and college students an opportunity to participate in an intensive, hands-onmedicine or veterinary medicine academy.
The program gives them a realworld glimpse into what it takes to become not just doctors or veterinarians,but leaders in your chosen profession and in the world. Through a combination of lectures, group problem-solving sessions, practical lab work,and hands-on training through simulated and real-life leadership situations,students gain valuable experiences while obtaining college credit.
College students also learn how public health and the business of medicineare shaping today’s most important health care issues. Drawing upon St.George’s University’s global expertise, CEPH-accredited public health program, and medical MBA program, you’ll participate in special case studies focusing on international health care systems, global public health,and how the concept of “One Health, One Medicine” impacts health care delivery throughout the world. It’s a foundation of knowledge and skills that can give you an important advantage when applying for competitive postgraduate programs and when you look for future employment.
Under the guidance of our knowledgeable staff, you’ll take part in feld trips to local clinics and businesses. Medical students can experience anything from patient recovery to hands-on training, while veterinary students learn at our small animal clinic and ride along with veterinarians on farm visits.
Life at the Med/Vet Summer Leadership Academy isn’t all about work. You’ll experience Caribbean life with snorkeling, swimming, hiking, and feeling the sand between your toes on Grand Anse Beach, just steps away from your classes. There’s also the surrounding countryside to explore, including the Grand Etang National Park and Forest Reserve and beautiful Concord Falls,two attractions that make Grenada fascinating.
You will be required to listen to lectures, work in labs, and complete medicaland veterinary case studies; therefore, we are seeking only serious-minded,motivated future doctors and veterinarians to participate.
