Inducted members will be announced annually either at graduation or an Alumni Event. They will receive a plaque and have their names inscribed onto the Alumni Hall of Distinction wall on campus in Grenada.

The recipients in this Inaugural event were selected in four categories – Medical Education, Alumni Achievement, Service Beyond, and the International Alumni Award given to alumni who have made significant contributions to medical care in countries outside of the United States and Canada, particularly in medically under-served countries or regions.

Vincentian, Dr. Rosalind Ambrose, Graduate of the SGU School of Medicine Class of 1983, who is currently the Consultant Radiologist at the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital, and Chief of Staff of the Caribbean Medical Imaging Center, was chosen by the alumni, faculty, and the administration of the Alumni Affairs Office of St. George’s University in conjunction with a committee of international medical graduates involved with the Alumni Association for this award, for having gone above and beyond in utilizing education and training for the good of mankind.
