    INTO St. Goerge's London Vs. St.George's Nicosia

    Advertisements



    I have to decide between these two programs and can't seem to decide which one is better. Nicosia offers a way better fees structure (almost half of London) but it is operated at University of Nicosia and only has one clinical site in the US (Swedish Covenant hospital) whereas INTO. St. George's has two. Any kind of input would greatly help.

    Thanks

    While there are many benefits, including the reduced fees of studying at The University of Nicosia Medical School, I would say, if clinical sites in the US are important to you, then INTO should be your preferred option. The clinical site in Chicago is only available to North Americans. This is allocated randomly so you may not get your first choice as it will be over subscribed with North Americans. (each cohort has approx 40-50 north Americans and there is only 24 spots in Chicago). The second option for those who favour a US style clinical experience is Puerto Rico. INTO guarantees you to go to the US, you get the study support of london and study a course in the environment for which the course is designed. Also if you have federal loans in the US they cannot be deferred while you are in Cyprus, but they can if you are studying in London. Please check with admissions to clarify that point- and get that in writing.

    Also, SGUL in London is accredited in all 50 states, and the clinical sites are U.S. medical schools, so the rotations are all acgme approved. Basically it's everything you want from a foreign med school with the facilities of a real country's medical school. It's the same curriculum, so it's still not preparing you for the steps, but it may? open up the opportunity to train in the UK as a backup plan if you don't match since you'll be at an actually British medical school. I haven't researched that, though. Either way, if you are North American and wish to remain such, go to the school with an established reputation- not a cheap Cypriot knockoff.

    Some factual corrections: Pachee said we only have one clinical site in the US: Swedish Covenant in Chicago. But as ShinyScapel pointed out, we also offer placements at a US medical school. Ponce is accredited by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) and its ACGME-approved specialities include Internal Medicine, Emergency Medicine, Paediatrics, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Family Medicine, Psychiatry and Surgery.

    Also, fightorflight said "SGUL in London is accredited in all 50 states". That is true for the "home" programme, which only accepts UK and EU students. But both SGUL Nicosia and INTO SGUL are in the same situation when it comes to California and those states that follow CA's lead. We have jointly submitted self-assessments and are waiting for the CA Medical Board to review these.
