Trinity School of Medicine opens doors for qualified medical students from the United States and Canada. Our rigorous Caribbean medical school is fully accredited through the Caribbean Accreditation Authority for Education in Medicine and other Health Professions (CAAM-HP). That accreditation is certified by the U.S. Department of Education’s National Committee on Foreign Medical Education and Accreditation (NCFMEA) standards, recognizing it as comparable to US accreditation standards in the eyes of the Department of Education. In addition, we offer a 5-Year program for international students from other countries that combines our Pre-Medical and Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree programs.
Programs are open to both Vincentians and foreign students. Scholarship and reduced tuition programs are available for training Vincentian doctors.
For students who have not attained the four-semester prerequisite courses for entrance to medical school, the school offers undergraduate programs.
The medical school curriculum is based on the US four-year model, requiring 130 weeks of study. Trinity’s program consists of five terms of basic science study followed by five terms of clinical core and elective clerkships.
Trinity School of Medicine is actively engaged in local community service, ranging from healthcare outreach under the umbrella of the school through student activities groups (such as Trinity’s AMSA and CaMSA chapters) reaching out to local children’s homes or charity groups on their own accord.
At Trinity School of Medicine, they provide students with a scientific foundation for further medical education and equip each student for a lifetime of learning, research, and/or clinical care and community service. Our faculty is comprised of full-time and part-time experts who present the foundations of medicine. In addition, the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital and clinical staff have become an integral part of our team and are significant contributors to our success.
Trinity’s student government acts as a communication system between the students and the administration. Regular meetings involve updates on activities, challenges, and opportunities faced by the school and the student body, as well as serving as a platform for the other student groups should there be requests for funding, major announcements, etc.
