Trinity Faculty, Leadership at 2018 IAMSE Conference

A major pillar of Trinity's research program is medical education, both in practical implementation and pure theoretical examination of emerging processes. Developing new techniques in the classroom is a constant process of research and development to provide the best possible outcomes for any students. Trinity was founded, and continues to operate, on a principle of earnest constant improvement closely tied to relevant research performed internally and around the world.

In that spirit, earlier this summer, six faculty members and Trinity's Dean Adkison attended the conference of the International Association of Medical Science Educators (IAMSE) in Las Vegas.

Six Months in, Trinity School of Medicine's Dr. Linda Adkison Talks Current Progress, Future Plans.

Dr. Adkison moved to St. Vincent in February of this year when Dr. Skelton transitioned his fulltime focus to his responsibilities as chancellor and, as her reputation as "that lady walking everywhere" among locals in Kingstown may already suggest, she hasn't wasted any time getting to work.

Trinity School of Medicine Announces Curriculum Update, Fostering a New Level of Success in Caribbean Medical Education

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." 

Our students tend to agree.

Trinity School of Medicine Welcomes New Dean Dr. Linda Adkison as Dr. Skelton Focuses on Chancellorship

As Trinity School of Medicine continues to grow, so must the administration guiding that growth, ensuring the depth and breadth of quality scales with it. To that end, we are very excited to announce that Dr. Skelton is transitioning to focus on his role as chancellor and we are proud to welcome the eminently qualified Dr. Linda Adkison as dean. 



Previously, Dr. Skelton held both positions himself, noting: "My initial plan was to serve as chancellor and dean through Trinity's obtaining accreditation by the Caribbean Accreditation Authority for Medicine and the Health professions (CAAM-HP) and then assist in identifying my successor. I am extremely pleased that Dr. Linda Adkison, a colleague from my Mercer days with extensive medical education, medical research, and medical administrative experience has agreed to join us as dean and relocate to St. Vincent. With this change, I will continue as chancellor to assist Dr. Adkison, and to work with her, President Wilson, and the Board of Trustees to continue the establishing of Trinity as a leading international medical school."
