You're correct, the first 2 years are spent in the Caribbean (the first 4 terms in Grenada, and then the last 2 terms in St. Vincent), and then the following 80 weeks of clinical rotations can be spent in the U.S., U.K., Caribbean, or a combination of those.
We have a few Texans in our class, and to my knowledge they do not have any formal relationship with hospitals in that state. Most students do their core rotations in New York City, New Jersey, Michigan, or California. You may be able to set up an outside elective rotation there, however.
what exactly do you mean regarding "accepting students"? For clinicals? No sgu clinicals in texas. see sgu's web site for a list of clinical rotation centers. For residency? It can be done. For licensing? It can be done but texas makes it extremely difficult for IMGs.
while some "Away electives" can be done outside of sgu affiliates, if you want to practice in texas you can't get a license if you do this I believe; its up to the individual to verfiy the particulars of each state.
Hi there, I just finished 1st term at SGU and have been looking into clinicals, and can confirm that SGU has affiliations with hospitals in NY, NJ, Michigan, CN, and a few spots in CA. Most people do their clinicals (last 2 years) in NY or NJ. Good luck!
