Seneca grads can launch medical careers in Grenada

A new partnership opens the door for Seneca Polytechnic graduates to launch their careers as medical doctors at a university on the tropical island of Grenada in the West Indies. 

A new partnership with St. George’s University will offer qualified Seneca students fast-track status and expedited entry into the five- or six-year M.D. programs at the St. George’s School of Medicine.

“We are excited to offer this direct pathway to M.D. programs,” says Marianne Marando, Vice-President of Academic & Students at Seneca Polytechnic. “This new partnership will provide our students with an outstanding opportunity to pursue further studies in medicine and the long history of excellent medical education at St. George’s makes them an ideal partner.”

St. George’s draws students and faculty from 140 countries to its programs in medicine, veterinary medicine, public health, science and business. Its School of Medicine is accredited by the Grenada Medical and Dental Council, which is recognized by the World Federation for Medical Education.

Seneca students can apply for the special admissions pathways to St. George’s when applying to or while enrolled at the polytechnic. In addition to completing all required prerequisite coursework, they must maintain a strong undergraduate GPA and score competitively on relevant entrance exams.

Seneca’s Arts and Science – University Transfer diploma program graduates who complete all required prerequisites enter St. George’s five-year M.D. program. Pre-Health Sciences Pathway to Advanced Diplomas & Degrees certificate program graduates who meet St. George’s admissions standards enter the six-year program.

Students in the five-year track must complete one year of preclinical coursework in Grenada, while those in the six-year track will complete two years of preclinical coursework there. Students in both programs can then complete their first year of medical study in Grenada or at Northumbria University in the U.K. Students will complete their second year of medical study in Grenada and their final two years in clinical rotations at affiliated hospitals in the U.S. and the U.K.
