About

“Welcome to Grenada, A Student’s Guide for Students” began in April of 2005 as a seven-page introduction to your new life at St. George’s University. It has since swelled to include information and advice for the first two years of island living. With our fingers crossed, we hope it eventually has information for the clinical years, interviewing for residency, and a guide to the match (with specifics for FMGs).

The editors believe in the power of honesty. If I told you that everything was perfect, would you believe anything I said? With that in mind, we hope you find our honest take on attending Saint George’s University to be helpful and that by showing you the rust you will appreciate the shine. For more on why we wrote this and our general mission statement, please read the Letter From the Editors.

Vitruvian Man by Ilea KhanThe entire document is available for download by clicking Ilea Khan’s Vitruvian Man. If you would like to see the guide with pictures and active links to helpful websites (while saving a few trees) you can browse through the Table of Contents. If you would like to contact the editors, please feel free at welcometogrenada@gmail.com. We also invite anyone with a talent for writing to become a contributing author as the courses change and some of the information here becomes stale. We could always use your help.

That’s all for now. Enjoy the guide.

Cheers, Christopher Kinsella and Jessica Kramer.

  1. You have a really nice, functional blog with a lot of information stated clearly. Nice job.

    I got the 11 page Grenada Beginners manual from a friend before coming to Grenada, some of it was VERY helpful, while other things were a little misleading. Something I think that should be added, though I can see why it would not be considered important, and why it was not added, is a list of the theme parties that are put on by clubs each term (especially for vet students) As a first term student, it would have been fun to be prepared for the 60′s party, be reminded to bring a Halloween costume or be prepared for a Ho Down. Just an idea.

    Just a response to vet student’s comment, I agree that it would have been nice to know about some of these parties, but then again it is kind of fun to try and come up with a costume for the party working with whatever you can find on the island. I have seen some interesting halloween costumes from people finding stuff around town.

    Hi Topher, it’s Matt from SGA in Grenada. We are going to be printing booklets for the students from the excerpts from this site and I was wondering if there was a copy that was already created that you could send me in printable (distributable) form. Thanks.

    Wow, just looked through the student guide. You guys must’ve spent quite some time putting it together. Thanks so much. And your blog is very informative and helpful. Keep up the good work.

    I’m sure you get this a lot, but I just wanted to say thanks to both of you for taking the time to put together such a comprehensive and helpful guide. I was recently accepted to the Charter Foundation Program (formerly Foundations of Medicine) for this August–less than three weeks before I have to be in Grenada for orientation. Needless to say I spent at least two days straight just doing research online to see what I will need to take, what to expect when I get there, and all that, and this website has been the single most helpful resource I have found.

    Thanks again, keep up the good work.

    Amazing stuff.

    Now that it’s been three years, maybe it’s time for some updates? The new Air Jamaica direct flights, the wider emergence of Skype, the renaming of FTM to the Charter Foundation Program, etc.

  9. Trotzy says:

    I’ve got a new guide that at SGU Guide. It is more up-to-date and I think everyone should check it out.
