St George’s University, Grenada, signs Memorandum of Understanding with Government of Fujairah, United Arab Emirates. Government lists St George’s University as recognized education provider

 

St George’s University (SGU), the international medical school on the Caribbean island of Grenada, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Government of Fujairah, United Arab Emirates. The MOU recognizes the benefits of mutual cooperation, and both institutions will now explore potential educational collaboration in medical related studies. As part of the agreement, SGU will be listed on the Government of Fujairah’s website as a recognized education provider, meaning SGU can now accept students from the Emirate of Fujairah.

 

The agreement, which is now in effect, expresses the commitment of both parties to increase access for the Government of Fujairah’s students to a US postsecondary education through SGU. The MOU further strengthens SGU’s relationship with the UAE, following last year’s announcement that the Ministry of Education had recognized the university’s MD degree programme.

 

“I am pleased that students in Fujairah will now have the option of studying at St George’s University in Grenada where they will receive a top international medical education,” said Dr G Richard Olds, President of SGU. “The University will also benefit, increasing the diversity and breadth of experience of our student body.”

 

Adding his remarks, Mohamed Khalifa Alzyoudi, Employee Affairs Director, Government of Fujairah, said: “SGU is a world-leading institution, and I am very happy that our students will now have the opportunity to study medicine at their campus in Grenada. This MOU marks the beginning of a fruitful relationship, and I look forward to working with SGU to further our collaboration in the near future.”

 

St. George’s University School of Medicine is one of the largest in the world, drawing students and faculty from 140 countries. Key to the university’s success has been developing enthusiasm in students to practice medicine in their home countries, often in areas where physician numbers are low. Approximately 1% of all practicing doctors in the USA are graduates of St George’s University, with that figure rising to around 15% in Trinidad and Tobago, and 20% in Botswana.
