Fujairah Government Signs MoU With St. George’s University
GRENADA, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News / WAM - 14th Jun, 2018) St. George’s University, SGU, the international medical school on the Caribbean island of Grenada, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding, MoU, with the government of Fujairah. The MoU recognises the benefits of mutual cooperation, and both institutions will now explore potential educational collaboration in medical-related studies.
The agreement, which is now in effect, expresses the commitment of both parties to increase access for the government of Fujairah’s students to a US post-secondary education through the SGU. The MoU further strengthens the SGU’s relationship with the UAE, following last year’s announcement that the Ministry of Education had recognised the university’s MD degree programme.
The university will also benefit, increasing the diversity and breadth of experience of our student body," said Dr. G Richard Olds, President of the SGU.
Mohamed Khalifa Alzyoudi, Director of Employee Affairs, Government of Fujairah, said, "The SGU is a world-leading institution, and I am very happy that our students will now have the opportunity to study medicine at their campus in Grenada. This MoU marks the beginning of a fruitful relationship, and I look forward to working with the SGU to further our collaboration in the near future."
The St. George’s University School of Medicine is one of the largest in the world, drawing students and faculty from 140 countries. The key to the university’s success has been developing enthusiasm in students to practice medicine in their home countries, often in areas where physician numbers are low. Approximately one percent of all practising doctors in the USA are graduates of the St. George’s University, with that figure rising to around 15 percent in Trinidad and Tobago, and 20 percent in Botswana.
