St. George's University
"The founding and development of St. George’s University have been the result of collective sacrifice and solidarity involving remarkable individuals and the Grenadian people as a whole. What stands here today is a magnificent educational monument to the cooperative solidarity of civilized peoples from different lands." Long ago, establishing a world-renowned medical education institution in Grenada seemed like an impossible dream. Yet, on July 23, 1976, Charles Modica, Louis Modica, Edward McGowan, and Patrick F. Adams witnessed the birth of that very dream through an act of Grenada’s Parliament establishing St. George’s University School of Medicine. With a handful of students and faculty, classes at St. George’s School of Medicine began on January 17, 1977. The dream became reality.
