Ramaiah Group of Institutions in association with St. George’s University, Grenada (SGU) have opened admissions for the class of September, 2021. They are offering medical aspirants in India an innovative educational pathway to practice medicine in India, the US, or UK. The association which started in 2020, provides 10+2 graduates the opportunity to obtain a Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree.
During the 5-year pathway, students will have the opportunity to experience global healthcare systems across several countries: Year 1 in India, Year 2 in the UK or Grenada, Year 3 in Grenada, and Years 4 and 5 in the US or UK.
The first year of the pathway is focussed on traditional basic science disciplines in Ramaiah. In the second and third year of the pathway, laboratory experience forms an integral part of the systems based curriculum. Small group discussions are focussed on early integration of patient presentations into the basic sciences underpinning the practice of clinical medicine. The final two years focus on clinical medicine, with training at SGU’s clinical centres and affiliated hospitals in the United States or the United Kingdom. This approach to clinical training gives students an opportunity to learn in some of the best-known hospitals and primary care settings across core rotations, sub-internships and elective rotations.
This pathway provides a great opportunity for aspiring physicians to enter an international medical career and start studying towards their MD degree in September 2021. Ramaiah, based in Bengaluru, will allow the candidates to start their journey towards becoming a doctor in a familiar environment, where they can build strong relationships with other students in their cohort before moving abroad together as a close-knit group in the second year. To facilitate the aspirants’ transition to studying abroad, SGU will offer a number of guest lectures at Ramaiah during the first year.
