Trinity School of Medicine is excited to announce a multi-state admissions tour of the Southeastern United States.
Trinity has made no secret of its particular attachment to the Southeast. Our administrative offices are outside Atlanta, Georgia, as were our first clinical rotations, and our chancellor lead the medical program at Mercer for the better part of two decades. This is more than geographical loyalty, though. It's about addressing a critical need on the part on both patients and our home-region's qualified but overlooked medical students.
Trinity School of Medicine is dedicated to creating new, higher standards in the quality and efficacy of its curriculum. The reasons for this are twofold: first, better doctors do more good, and second, we want to give our students the opportunity to become those better doctors. Our philosophy manifests in a number of ways throughout the school, from research in medical pedagogy to exciting announcements like this:
Effective Monday, May 9th, Trinity's ILP was adjusted to reflect a more finely balanced distribution of courses to have a greater impact on long-term student success.

What is the ILP?
The Indivualized Learning Plan (ILP) is, in the words of former faculty member and current associate director of admissions, Dr. Guinevere Bell, "a program launched in 2013 to help (a segment of) students adapt to the rigor of medical school. ILP students take a reduced course load in the beginning, giving them a bit more time to adjust, but still allowing them to complete their MD degree in 4 years."
Last week, Trinity’s Canadian Medical Students Association (CaMSA) once again took part in an outreach event. On Tuesday, April 26th, the group handed over much-needed material donations to the Luis Punnett Home, the Mental Health Rehabilitation Centre, and the St. Benedict Children’s Home, Milton Cato Memorial Hospital, and a number of smaller health clinics throughout the island.
