Weekend Trip to Carriacou

After finishing up our last SGU written test in February, a group of us (and many more groups) decided to head to Carriacou to stay the night. With the help of my friend Zena, we all bought our ferry tickets beforehand. I definitely recommend doing that, because the line on the morning we left (Saturday) […]

Term 5 Medical School @ SGU

In the past, Term 5 used to consist of pharmacology and pathophysiology with separate tests, as well as CBSE and BSCE. We were the first term to start covering pharm in term 4, so our term 5 was going to be different. In the first 5 weeks, we covered the remaining micro, pathology, and pharm, […]

Term 4 Medical School @ SGU

The dreaded term 4. The weed out term. The most intense/hardest term. Heading into term four, I felt super intimidated. I had only heard horror stories, about the workload, labs, material, professors, exams, etc. All any upper termer could say was that it was the most difficult term. We had just finished term three and […]

Term 3 — SGU Medical School

Term 3 lasts 6 weeks and requires you to either stay six weeks later (if you start your first term in January) or start six weeks earlier (if you start your first term in August). I started in August of 2017, so we started July 2nd, six weeks before term one, two, and five would […]

Term 2 — Medical School at SGU

After 3-4 weeks of winter break, term 2 started up with full speed ahead. Personally, I didn’t think term two was going to be as hard as term one, because I knew what to expect and I knew I could do this. With that being said, it was definitely harder for me. I told myself […]

St. Georges University was about two hours from Levera National Park! My taxi driver and friend, Ray, took us to the other end of […]

Term 1 of Medical School at SGU

This time last year I was counting down the days until I’d be leaving for Grenada. One year later, I’m dreading the return to the island (less than one week before term 3 begins). I was very excited to pursue this adventure, and I am still stoked to be earning a medical degree, but I’d […]

MIDWAY MASSAGE : Soothing Touch Massages Done by the Visually Impaired

Sitting at a cubicle or desk for the majority of your day is surprisingly hard on your butt and back. If I am not studying, I am eating, sleeping, or sitting in a desk at class for four hours at a time. The break from work is nice, but after completing almost half of the […]

Squeezin’ In Some Scuba: Scuba Diving Certified in Grenada

This weekend, I officially became PADI (Professional Association of Diver Instructors) certified as an open water diver. I probably would not have gotten certified, if it weren’t for the tempting coral reef and saltwater marine life. Many years ago, I was diving with my dad. I was a teenager, and I knew little to nothing […]

White Coat Ceremony

The day had finally come. The day that my fellow classmates and I took an oath to medicine, while we received our white coats. The moment we had all worked so hard for; all of us offering a different story (over 50 countries are represented in the student body of St. George’s University—School of Medicine—Class […]
