Trinity School of Medicine offers a Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree upon successful completion of the foundations of medicine curriculum, clinical clerkships, and the required NBME and USMLE exams.
The foundations of medicine program is uniquely designed to offer Trinity students an affordable, hands on and individualized MD program with the necessary training and knowledge to prepare them to serve as leaders in the healthcare system. The academic success of Trinity's students is critical to achieving our mission, which is why our student learning approach is at the forefront of our academic model.
The faculty at Trinity are committed to helping our students develop the skills, knowledge, behaviors, and attitudes they need to practice patient-centric medicine. We have defined curricular expectations, goals, and standards for our educators and students to meet.
The Clinical Clerkships curriculum at Trinity School of Medicine is a required 48 weeks of clinical core clerkships and 27 weeks of electives. This takes place in years three and four (terms six through ten) after passing the required NBME and USMLE exams.
The 75 weeks of Clinical Clerkships are offered at approved sites in the United States or, with special approval at Milton Cato Memorial Hospital or other sites. During these clinical clerkships, students apply what they have learned and take the next steps toward their career by working directly with physicians and hospital staff.
