UMDNJ and Grenada medical school move to head off physician shortage projected for N.J.

UMDNJ and Grenada medical school move to head off physician shortage projected for N.J.

St. George's School of Medicine students will train in Garden State hospitals

Citing a projected shortage of physicians in state, the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey and St. George’s University School of Medicine in Grenada, West Indies, announced Tuesday that they are negotiating a partnership agreement under which UMDNJ would collaborate in the education and training of St. George’s medical students at New Jersey hospitals.

St. George’s, whose student body includes American students, currently has affiliation agreements with approximately 15 hospitals throughout New Jersey where approximately 350 third- and fourth-year students are enrolled in clinical training rotations. Following graduation, students generally move into hospital residency programs to begin their careers as physicians, and many apply for residencies at New Jersey hospitals. The agreement will specify the manner in which UMDNJ will attempt to enhance students’ preparation for the residencies.

The pact is expected to call for the creation of an Affiliation Oversight Committee, which will coordinate the effort and report both to Dr. Robert L. Johnson, dean of UMDNJ-New Jersey Medical School, and Dr. Stephen Weitzman, dean of St. George’s School of Medicine.
