Trinity School of Medicine Launches Coordinated Curriculum

We are excited to announce some substantial updates to the Trinity School of Medicine curriculum. These changes more directly align and integrate the courses to complement each other and improve student understanding and performance as they progress through their basic sciences.

First, some background. The Trinity School of Medicine curriculum committee is a group of department chairs, key faculty, the dean, and a representative of the Student Government Association (SGA). The SGA representative ensures that the perspective of students is taken into account, and ultimately has their final endorsement as changes are implemented.

Trinity School of Medicine Holds August 5th Term Ceremony

Last week, Trinity School of Medicine held its latest fifth term ceremony, sending 30 of its  students on to Baltimore, MD and the next phase of their medical education. 

The event was attended by families and friends of the departing students, all welcomed by student speaker Killian Harrelson. Harrelson noted the group's diversity, “Some of us came to medical school directly out of college; while others took some time off in between; and for others still, this is their second career." He reminisced about their passion upon arrival in a new country, to new people, and a new experience.

Trinity School of Medicine Joins Top Tier Caribbean Medical Schools with Latest Accreditation Determination from CAAM-HP

Earlier this summer, Trinity took part in a scheduled accreditation reassessment by The Caribbean Accreditation Authority for Education in Medicine and other Health Professions (CAAM-HP). For some background, CAAM-HP is the internationally recognized governing body of medical school accreditation in the Caribbean, with standards and practices modeled on the United States' Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME), which is the accrediting authority of US medical schools. The standards specifically used to evaluate Trinity are also recognized by the US Department of Education's NCFMEA as comparable to the LCME.

The accreditation agency determined that Trinity School of Medicine has been elevated to “Accredited with Conditions, 2017-2019,” the current highest level of determined status of all medical schools accredited by CAAM-HP.
