Admissions at Trinity School of Medicine

Trinity School of Medicine's approach to admissions is holistic. The bigger picture of an applicant's life, the trajectory of their academic performance, additional experience in healthcare or research, even challenges they've overcome in pursuit of their goals, all of these are seriously considered before we reach an admissions decision.

❱ Requirements

Trinity's requirements for admission consist of three main components: undergraduate credit hours, prerequisite courses, and completion of the MCAT. At Trinity, we pride ourselves on considering the comprehensive story of every qualified applicant. This means an applicant's previous education, interview, past experience, and other technical standards are all considered in conjunction with his or her MCAT score, which is why we do not set minimum scores.

❱ Process

Note: Our rolling admission process spans the entire year to accommodate both our diverse applicant pool and our three start dates, (January, May, and September). Our admissions committee prioritizes reviewing applicants, so decisions can be made within weeks of a completed submission.

The process itself begins by completing one of our application options—complete our easy online application and release your MCAT score, or upload an existing application report from one of the approved application services. Shortly after your references are received and admission interview has concluded, you will receive a decision.

❱ Financial Information

The cost of medical school tuition can be expensive, and financing your medical education is an important part of your decision-making process. Along with offering scholarships and grants, Trinity also maintains relationships with multiple private student loan providers. Additionally, the Sallie Mae Smart Option Student Loan® is a sensible loan option for graduates, providing rates and terms competitive with Federal PLUS Loans.

❱ Admission Predictor

Trinity School of Medicine’s admissions predictor is one of several tools we offer to potential applicants to gauge their potential and explore their options prior to applying. This introductory-level evaluation uses an automated algorithm to measure the data you input against historic and current averages of student applicant data as well as the outcomes and residency potential of our graduates.

After evaluating the initial findings of our admissions predictor, feel free to contact the admissions team directly with any questions or, alternately, apply with confidence if you feel the findings support that next step. Alternately, you can consider using the more rigorous pre-application evaluation utility. The pre-application evaluation requires the upload of unofficial documents and will prompt you to schedule a conversation with admissions directors.

❱ Start Your Application

Trinity School of Medicine is reshaping medical education, up to and including the application process. There are some elements any medical school will always need to make a good decision:

  • Your MCAT score,
  • An application fee,
  • Official transcripts,
  • Letters of recommendation, and
  • Your application.

However, how we receive and process those is what sets us apart. Once you apply, you will be contacted almost immediately to confirm receipt of your application and our admissions counselors will guide you through next steps. This is usually the interview.

At Trinity, the admissions interview is your opportunity to give us context and tell your story. As an applicant to medical school, you deserve to be heard. That’s why we put the admissions interview at the beginning, not the end, of the application process.

Once all of your materials have been submitted and your interview is complete, your file will be sent to the admissions committee. After a fast, but thorough review of your file, the committee will reach a decision and you will hear from us in about one week.

If you are accepted to Trinity, you will continue to interact with the admissions counsellors as they help prep you for a transition to campus in St. Vincent, and in most cases, you’ll see them in person when you arrive on the island, helping you settle in.

At Trinity, even the admissions process is about personal relationships that support you on your journey into medicine. Start the application process now, and you’ll see for yourself.

❱ Transfer Admissions

Looking for a change in scenery for medical school? Earning your medical degree by the beach is always an option. While Trinity School of Medicine does not actively recruit students to transfer, we do accept transfer applications on a student by student basis and depending on certain criteria.
