Students will have new options to get a degree in medicine or veterinary medicine, thanks to a new agreement between Brandon University (BU) and Saint George’s University.
The two institutions today signed a Memorandum of Understanding that will allow students to obtain medical or veterinary degrees at Saint George’s, in Grenada, after taking either a three- or four-year pre-professional science degree at BU.
“This is an extraordinary opportunity for students at Brandon University to broaden their cultural and geographic horizons while furthering their education,” said Acting Dean of the Faculty of Science Dr. Austin Gulliver. “There is very strong demand for physicians and veterinarians in Manitoba, and this agreement helps us educate Manitoba students to help meet that demand.”
Manitoba’s Labour Market Forecast predicts that there will be 1,300 job openings for physicians, dentists and veterinarians by 2021.
After two years at Saint George’s, medical students will take another two years in clinical rotation at affiliated hospitals in the Canada, the United States or the United Kingdom. Students of veterinary medicine will take three years at Saint George’s, followed by a year of clinical rotation at affiliated veterinary schools in Canada, the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, or Ireland.
”We are very excited to be announcing this agreement with Brandon University,” said Dr. G. Richard Olds, President and CEO of St. George’s University. “With the need for physicians and veterinarians on the rise in Canada – particularly in rural areas – we look forward to addressing this shortage by expanding the opportunities for BU students to receive a high-quality, international education here in Grenada.”
Brandon University President, Dr. GervanFearon, said that the new international agreement was a natural fit for the two institutions. “We are advancing our international activities at BU by increasing international student recruitment and providing our students with more opportunities for international experience,” Dr. Fearon said. “Today’s agreement reflects this broad internationalization theme at Brandon University.”
“In today’s world, it is important for students, citizens and universities to look globally for the best solutions,” he said. “Not only have we found a great partner in Saint George’s, but our partnership helps us supply solutions right here in Brandon and in Manitoba.
