MIAMI, Sept. 30 (UPI) -- St. George's University medical school in Grenada has moved is second-year medical school classes to Miami as a result of Hurricane Ivan's assault.
Ivan hit the island three weeks ago as a Category 4 storm, devastating the small Caribbean Island.
The students attended class for the first time in three weeks Wednesday at Miami's Barry University, The Miami Herald reported Thursday.
"We've just picked up right where we left off," said Jeff Johnston, associate dean of curriculum for St. George's. "Our goal is to provide the same quality of education up here, even though we don't have the same facilities as we would have had in Grenada."
The school is temporarily using Barry's former student center, which was vacated earlier this year when a new Student Union facility was completed.
First-year medical students were sent to classrooms on Long Island, N.Y. Veterinary students are attending classes at North Carolina State, Purdue and Kansas State.
