The partnership establishes a "2+5" program through which qualified Green River College international students who complete two years of undergraduate coursework and earn an Associate in Science for Transfer, or AS-T, degree in biology can secure priority entry into St. George's five-year M.D. program.

This program begins with one year of preclinical coursework in Grenada, followed by a year of Basic Sciences in either Grenada or at Northumbria University in the United Kingdom. Grenada is the site for a second year of Basic Sciences study. The final two years consist of clinical rotations at hospitals affiliated with St. George's in the United States and the United Kingdom.

The partnership also creates a "2+2+4" program, in which students who earn an AS-T in Biology at Green River and earn a bachelor's degree in a premedical program at an accredited four-year college or university in the United States, can qualify for priority admission into St. George's four-year M.D. program.

Students on the four-year M.D. track may complete their first two years of study in Grenada or spend their first year at Northumbria and their second in Grenada. Students spend the last two years of the program in clinical rotations at hospitals affiliated with St. George's in the United States and the United Kingdom.

Students who wish to pursue either of the combined degree programs must express interest upon applying to Green River College. Admission to St. George's School of Medicine requires candidates to maintain a strong GPA and score competitively on the MCAT. Those who enroll in the M.D. program receive a $10,000 scholarship distributed over the length of their studies upon matriculating and are eligible for additional scholarships and grants from St. George's.
