Trinity School of Medicine's AMSA Chapter Holds Pop-up Health Screenings to Fight Chronic Disease

Over time citizens are taking greater and greater action in knowing their relevant medical data and taking steps to manage or correct as needed.

Is a Caribbean Medical School a Good Choice for a Career in Medicine?

In our ten year history, many prospective students have just learned about Caribbean medical education. They aren’t aware of the differences, the similarities to studying at home, or even what it means to be an international medical graduate (IMG) practicing in the United States and Canada.

Today, we’re going get into all the ways a Caribbean med school is a viable path, if not even a good choice, for students that want to practice back home.

Before we get started, let’s get into why offshore medical schools even exist. In as simple of terms as possible, the demand for doctors simply cannot be met by US schools alone.

So many future physicians come our way looking for something new; whether that's a unique learning environment built on support and a strong relationship with the faculty, a curriculum with an emphasis on clinical skills and service to patients, or just a true opportunity to live up to their potential. 

In this latest edition of our alumni spotlight, meet Diane Hindman, MD. Dr. Hindman was a career changer who came to Trinity after working as a pharmacist in Canada and the United States for twenty-five years.
