Anderson College Announces Partnership with St. George’s University in Grenada
Pre-Medical Program Provides a Direct Pathway to Medical School
TORONTO, Sept. 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Anderson College of Health, Business and Technology announces a direct admissions partnership with St. George’s University, Grenada, enabling students enrolled in Anderson’s Pre-Medical program to immediately qualify for St. George’s Medical School, with a $5,000 scholarship.
“This new partnership with St. George’s represents a tremendous opportunity for our students, many of whom are changing careers or building new lives in Canada,” said Mihkel Ranniste, President of Anderson College. “We’re proud to collaborate with St. George’s in building Canada’s doctor workforce of the future.”
To take advantage of this opportunity, Anderson students must indicate their interest in the pathway program, meet admission requirements for both schools, enroll in Anderson’s Pre-Medical program, maintain a 3.2, or higher, grade point average and successfully complete an interview process. This qualifies graduates for provisional acceptance to St. George’s University medical school. The admitted students are eligible for the $5,000 scholarship as well as additional financial aid.
“We’re thrilled to partner with St. George’s and provide an educational fast-track – our one-year Pre-Medical program paves the way for graduates to access medical school faster,” said Heather Yang, Chief Executive Officer of Anderson College. “Developing strategic partnerships that allow students to access advanced learning and expanded career options is the future of education.”
“With Canada’s limited number of medical schools, and students often unable to meet the MD school requirements of completing at least three years of undergraduate education before even applying to medical programs, we sought a way to meet the real needs of medical students,” said Rose Elia, Chief Operating Officer of Anderson College. “I’m thrilled Anderson is leading the way.”
“By partnering with Anderson’s online Pre-Medical program, we’ll be able to draw students from all over Canada — and even the world,” said Sandra Banner, St. George’s Director of Admissions for Canada. “Canada faces a very real shortage of doctors. We look forward to helping narrow that shortage and meeting the needs of the healthcare sector.”
