What You Really Need to Know About Being an International Medical Graduate

I am a proud graduate of St. George’s University, a medical school located on the beautiful Caribbean island of Grenada. My experience living in this tropical island paradise for two years was completely life-changing and it will always be a time in my life that I look back on fondly over the years.

However, prior to my acceptance to an international medical school, I was quite apprehensive about attending after reading all of the “horror stories” posted in online medical student forums. There are quite a few nasty things said about students who choose to go abroad for medical school, and it seems that this stigma alone is enough to keep many students from even considering an application.

As someone who has actually been through an international med school program (as opposed to many of the online naysayers who are simply repeating rumors), I am here to answer some commonly asked questions and dispel a few myths about IMGs so that we can all be as informed as possible!
