Your pathway to Residency

Selecting the right medical school requires careful consideration and planning.  It is a sizeable investment of both your time and finances.  Therefore, it is important to choose wisely.  RGU and National University of Medical Sciences (NUMSS) have recently joined in an international partnership agreement that allows graduates of NUMSS to prequalify for conditional acceptance into the Doctor of Medicine program offered at RGU.  

NUMSS graduates can enjoy pursuing a medical degree on the beautiful Caribbean Island, St. Vincent and the Grenadines and gain valuable clinical experience at accredited teaching hospitals in the U.S and Jamaica.  Students can choose elective clerkships globally in their final year while preparing to apply for residency training in multiple jurisdictions, including the U.S, Canada, UK among other places.
