Faculty of Medicine


Saint George University of Beirut Faculty of Medicine (SGUB-FM) offers a four-year program leading to the MD degree as well as, post-graduate medical education (PGME) and training (residency and fellowship) at Saint George Hospital University Medical Center (SGHUMC). Students and trainees will be involved in research across all programs.

Graduate and post-graduate programs are carefully designed according to LCME and ACGME-i standards respectively. Our blended curriculum integrates interactive, flipped teaching methods with reduced hours of didactic lectures. The curriculum, as of Med I, exposes the students to hands-on clinical experiences through interactions with patients, simulated actors, cadaver dissections, artificial simulations, and community healthcare involvement. The Faculty prepares its students to meet the growing needs of healthcare in the future through the promotion of lifelong self-learning skills.

SGUB-FM will matriculate its first class of 50 students in September 2022 in accordance with the laws of Lebanon, the requirements of the World Health Organization (WHO), and in compliance with the World Federation for Medical Education (WFME) through TEPDAD (equivalent to LCME accreditation for countries outside the USA).
