Trinity School of Medicine 2012 Residency Match Results

Caribbean Medical School Match Results

Trinity School of Medicine announces results of  the 2012 National Residency Match Program  (NRMP) and 2012 Canadian Resident Matching  Service (CaRMS).

According to the ECFMG, the organization that certifies International Medical Graduates (IMGs) to enter US graduate medical education, for the tenth  consecutive year, the number of first-year  residency positions offered through the National  Resident Matching Program (NRMP) increased. The  number of IMGs who matched to first-year residency positions in 2012 increased by 260 from the previous year. Of the 11,134 IMGs who participated in the 2012 Match, 4,886 (43.9%) matched.

94% of our 2012 Graduates who participated in the Match have been placed in a Residency Program. 

Small Class, Big Results
When Trinity welcomed our charter class in the Fall of 2008 thoughts of residency matches were still a distant goal, though one that the faculty, administration and new class were focused on from day one. Eight of the thirteen students who participated in the 2012 NRMP Main Match obtained a first-year residency position, four more went on to obtain residency placements in a subsequent Match year. The result is a 94% Residency Placement Rate for our 2012 Graduates. To have achieved such strong results so early in our history is a real testament to our students’ determination and speaks volumes to the strength of our faculty and overall program. Through our students achievements, Trinity will make every effort to erase the notion that residency success for Caribbean medical students in an impossibility.

From Trinity’s charter class, two Canadian citizens participated in the Canadian Resident matching Service (CaRMS) and one obtained a first-year position. These same students both matched with first-year positions through the US NRMP.
