St. George’s University (SGU) School of Medicine, Grenada, in the Caribbean, has announced that 980 of its students and graduates from different parts of the globe, including the MENA region, secured residencies in the United States in this year’s Match. The ‘Match’ is the process of securing a post-graduate residency placement in the United States, that will provide medical graduates with the hands-on clinical training they need to begin practicing as licensed doctors in the US.
“Match Day is a pivotal moment in a doctor’s career,” said Dr Marios Loukas, Dean of St. George’s University School of Medicine. “On behalf of the entire St. George’s University community, I congratulate this remarkable class of medical students.”

This year, 980 SGU students and graduates were matched into residences in 21 specialties across 42 US states. More students and graduates will find out where they will be doing residency training in the weeks to come.
SGU graduates will begin residency programmes in several highly competitive specialties, ranging from surgery and neurology to emergency medicine and paediatrics.
This new group of doctors will play a crucial role in addressing the growing global physician shortage. For the ninth year in a row, SGU is the largest provider of new doctors to the US healthcare system*.
“St. George’s University graduates have been meeting the medical needs of communities for decades,” Dr Loukas said. “We look forward to seeing all the great things that this newest class of St. George’s graduates will accomplish.”
