Will I be able to practice in Canada, in the U.S., or near home? Is Trinity approved, accredited, recognized? Can Caribbean medical school students compete with U.S. Medical students in the Residency match? These are some of our most frequently asked questions from prospective students considering Caribbean medical schools. To help answer these questions, we've gathered the relevant information from the appropriate sources: the American Medical Association (AMA), the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) and from the individual state medical boards of North American. We hope to bring clarity to the vast amount of misinformation and opinion generated by internet searches, pre-med forums and other less-than-reputable sites.

U.S. medicals schools have been modifying their curriculum to stress the importance of early clinical exposure. This is another aspect of Trinity School of Medicine's MD program that aligns with U.S. medical students' education, to preparing for clerkships and licensure in the U.S. and Canada.

When we interview Applicants and ask them why they chose to apply to Trinity School of Medicine it's usually for the factors that differentiate our MD program from other Caribbean medical schools: Class sizes that are relatively small (from 25-75 depending on the term); clinical experience at our affiliated teaching hospital that starts in your first term; and the experienced leadership in our Dean, Dr. Skelton.

The U.S. Medical School Application cycle is in full swing for the 2014 Fall enrollment and many would-be medical students who did not gain admission for the coming year are likely pondering their options: re-apply and wait a year; enroll in a graduate program and re-apply in a year or; look outside the U.S. system.

We understand how extremely competitive admission to Canadian Faculties of Medicine is and how highly qualified students are forced to either abandon their dream or pursue a different path to earn their MD. A few weeks ago, members of Trinity's Admissions Team ventured to Toronto, Canada to meet with Applicants for our MD program. Over the course of two days we hosted a Prospective Students (and Parents) event and conducted close to 15 admission interviews. For many, Trinity School of Medicine is that path.
A significant number of our incoming students (consistently near 25%) come from Canada. Those that started in our very first years have already blazed the trail back, successful in securing a residency through CaRMS. Other students who came to Trinity from well-known Canadian Universities like McGill, U. Toronto, and McMaster, chose to pursue their residency programs in the U.S.
Kat Jurecki, a native of Ontario and former student at both Acadia and Dalhousie, participated in our Event and shared her experiences on the road to achieving a successful residency program match in her top choice specialty. Kat shared tried and tested tactics and offered advice for prospective Canadian students like:
The Caribbean medical school, Trinity School of Medicine, welcomed a record number of medical students into their September class last week after a weekend filled with meet-and-greet activities showing the students around their new home on the island of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
As usual, the Doctor of Medicine students come from a variety of backgrounds and represent a wide swath of diversity, something Trinity prides itself on. This incoming term has several students from St. Vincent who advanced from Trinity's Pre-Medical program, many Canadian and US students, as well as students from India and Egypt and Asia.
