Campus Enhancements Await Students Returning to Grenada

 



 

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, August 31, 2021 – St. George’s University (SGU) School of Medicine enhances its campus in Grenada as it welcomes students from around the world for an innovative, face-to-face learning experience.

Students will enjoy the new advancements as SGU continues to support its growing campus community with several expansion and redevelopment projects to be completed in the 2021-2022 academic year. When construction is complete, the campus will feature greater capacity for individual and group study spaces as well as new technologically advanced clinical skills laboratories.

As of July 2021, St. George’s University School of Medicine has been the #1 provider of doctors into first-year US residencies for the last 12 years combined. We pride ourselves in delivering student-centric education, while providing the tools and training to become doctors of the future. Keeping the wellness and safety of our students as top priority, we have implemented changes to SGU’s Grenada campus, and we are excited to see our students return to experience the enhancements,” says Lesley Byrne, Vice President of International Student Recruitment.

Enhancements include:

·              New Eric Gairy Pavilion: Outside of Eric Gairy Hall, this open-air pavilion welcomes up to 282 students to convene for outdoor study, a tried-and-true setting to further absorb coursework. Scheduled to be completed by August 2021.

·              New Beachfront Pavilion: On the hill connecting the upper and lower campus, this new pavilion will have the capacity for 324 students to conduct group study, all with the backdrop of True Blue Bay. Scheduled to be completed by early fall.

·              Renovated indoor study spaces campus-wide: Students can really stretch their legs with 52 percent more individual study spaces thanks to new carrels in Founders Library, Lower Modica Hall, Lower Taylor Hall, St. David’s Hall, St. Andrew’s Hall, and St. John’s Hall. Scheduled to be completed by August 2021.

·              Additional clinical skills labs: After recently updating the existing 56 clinical skills rooms with the newest technology, SGU is also adding another 28 rooms as well as a new control center that will help provide an optimal simulation experience with standardized patients. Scheduled to be completed in early 2022.

 

The improvements were put in place as SGU welcomed back fully vaccinated students, faculty, staff, and administrators, with in-person classes back in session in August.

The school has exerted global influence from a multicultural perspective having produced over 280 MD graduates from the Middle East and North Africa
