Office of Career Guidance and Student Development (OCGSD)

The Office of Career Guidance and Student Development (OCGSD) is staffed by associates of University Support Services, and faculty and alumni of St. George’s University School of Medicine. OCGSD is designed to assist medical students in obtaining postgraduate residency. Complete information on examination requirements, clinical rotation time schedules, and obtaining postgraduate training is provided to help students navigate the residency application process.

The OCGSD also advises students on USMLE preparation, counsels students in specialty and residency selection, interview skills, CV preparation, and the residency application process in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, and other non-US programs. OCGSD advisors provide an invaluable service and we cannot overemphasize the benefits of utilizing their expertise. All conversations and communications are considered personal and confidential.

The OCGSD also acts as a liaison with the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG).
