SGU is the largest provider of new doctors to the U.S. healthcare system for the past 10 years

TRUE BLUE, GRENADA / ACCESSWIRE / March 18, 2024 / St. George’s University School of Medicine announced today that more than 880 of its students and graduates have secured post-graduate residencies at health centers around the United States in the 2024 match cycle.

This marks the 10th consecutive year in which SGU has been the largest provider of new doctors to first-year U.S. post-graduate residencies.1

“Match Day is a pivotal moment in a new doctor’s career,” said Dr. Marios Loukas, Dean of the St. George’s University School of Medicine. “The entire St. George’s University community looks forward to this day, and together, we congratulate this remarkable class of medical students on their success.”

SGU students and graduates matched into residences in 22 specialties across 40 states and the District of Columbia. More students will find out where they will be doing residency training in the days and weeks to come.

St. George’s University graduates will begin residency programs in several highly competitive specialties, ranging from urology and neurology to emergency medicine and pediatrics. Many will be returning to their home states or cities to begin their careers in medicine.

“Each one of these matched students represents the next step in a dream come true, and each one is a vital addition to the availability of care and to the medical professional community,” said Dr. Loukas.

This new group of doctors will play a crucial role in addressing America’s growing physician shortage. Since 2015, St. George’s University has been the largest provider of new doctors to the U.S. healthcare system annually. More than two-thirds of SGU graduates enter primary care specialties, and a number of SGU alumni work in medically underserved areas.

“St. George’s University graduates have been meeting the medical needs of communities across the United States for decades,” Dr. Loukas said. “We look forward to seeing all the great things that this newest class of SGU graduates will accomplish.”
