Considering a Transfer?

While Trinity School of Medicine does not recruit students to transfer, we will consider applications to transfer on a student by student basis and depending on certain criteria. 

Transfer Eligibility Guidelines

If your medical school is in a country that has adopted CAAM-HP as the accrediting body, the school must have CAAM-HP accreditation.

  • Students wishing to transfer to the clinical science terms must have passed the USMLE Step 1 exam on their first attempt and exam score thresholds may apply.
