Had the pleasure tonight of meeting with McGill graduates who are now studying medicine at St. Georges University in Grenada. Was really, really proud of them! St. Georges students were invited to field questions from a group of advisors and profs from about 17 universities in Canada and the US. More McGill grads showed up than from any other school and they answered all questions with great aplomb. Everyone was greatly impressed. These students are energetic, bright and dedicated.
