    Just wanted people veiws on St George's Medical School in Grenada, The location and facilities on offer are truly amazing and they claim their teaching is the best world wide. They have affiliated Hospitals in UK, USA, and Australia allowing for greater rotation in clinical years and their degree is fully recognised by the GMC.

    With Sun, beach and sand the five years will fly by, but I am sure your bank will be quick to remind you the money you owe, I added up all their fees and for five year medical degree it costs around £100,000 which is a lot!

    However, does anyone think its really worth it? If you can't get into medical school in the UK, but you really want to be a good doctor and money is no objective to you in life than is it worth it. After all I am sure you'll enjoy your five years there! Lets face it after graduating your life be the Hospital! (or clinic if you want to be GP).

    If anyone doesn't have a clue what I am talking about please visit the following site: http://www.sgu.edu/

    £100,000 is a lot of money and yes the course sounds good but to be honest I don't think it is worth it. Think how long it would take you to pay back the money.

    they have a Vet School as well, and as far as I'm aware its recognised by the RCVS.
    I remember looking at it one time and thought it would be a possibilty if I didn't get a place in the UK, but if the costs for medicine are anything to go by, theres no chance :eek:

    Yeh there may be sun and beaches, but do you really want to spend at least 5 years stuck on an island in the mdidle of nowhere? and if you were a practice manager looking for a new vet/doctor who would you rather have - UK trained or from grenada? I know I certainly would take the UK trained person.

    Plus with St Christophers you get dumped in Luton - admittedly above a Pizza Hut, which may have it's benefits (sarcasm!), but it's still Luton!

    Also you have to take the PLAB etc to practice - not an easy exam to pass, as these course award US qualifications - and even these qualifications are so ropey some States have 'barred' Doctors from such institutions.

    PS - all medical degrees recognised by the WHO are recognised my the GMC.
