Saint George University of Beirut’s new medical school curriculum is being developed in collaboration with Mayo
Clinic College of Medicine and Science. With aspirations to replicate Mayo Clinic’s three-shield healthcare model
that integrates patient care, education, and research, SGUB intends to leverage Mayo Clinic College of Medicine
and Science’s expertise to help prepare SGUB Faculty of Medicine students for careers in clinical practice, scientific
research, and medical education.
The philosophy of the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine and Science is to engage students in team-based, evidence-based, and patient-focused care. Hands-on learning, and the acquisition of clinical competencies and skills begin in the first year of medical studies.
These skills are markedly enhanced by technology transfer, research, and innovation in educational methodology that create a student-focused environment of excellence within Saint George Hospital University Medical Center, the oldest and one of the premier medical centers that was founded in 1878 in Beirut.
