May 2018 White Coat Ceremony Welcomes New Students to Trinity

 
Last week, Trinity School of Medicine held the white coat ceremony for its May 2018 students at the school's campus in St. Vincent & the Grenadines.

The white coat ceremony, a tradition started at the University of Chicago 30 years ago that has since spread across the United States and Canada, is an induction into medical professional schools. As it effectively celebrates admission into medical school and it book-ends the experience with a student's eventual graduation, the white coat ceremony is an exciting day for all involved. Guests to the day's event included Sir Frederick Ballantyne, Governor General of St. Vincent; Hon. Luke Browne, Minister of Health, Wellness and the Environment; members of the Trinity board of directors, faculty, and staff, as well as families and friends of the incoming class. Read on to see photos, hear about speakers, and learn what you can expect at your own white coat ceremony.

Trinity School of Medicine 2018 Match Results: New States, New Specialties, New Records

Without a doubt, one of the most stressful and exciting days in the lives of medical students, (and medical school administrations) is Match Day. 2018 was no exception. We have a lot of ground to cover, so we're going to dive right in, but first, we want to congratulate our 2018 match candidates. We could not be more proud of another record setting year in the match.

This year, we broke new ground in programs, specialties, and states. We also returned to programs across the US and Canada that stand testament to the reputation of past Trinity residents that continue to open doors for their fellow alums with their work ethic, compassion, and integrity. We are proud and grateful in equal measure of what Trinity graduates have accomplished in our school's first ten years.

Trinity School of Medicine: Study Globally, Practice Locally

In this latest infographic, we explore the often overlooked but nonetheless pivotal role international medical graduates play in the American healthcare system. 



International medical graduates (that is, doctors that graduated from non-US medical schools) make up 25% of physicians in the United States. This is because the United States only graduates 19,254 doctors a year from medical school, while having 28,849 residency slots to fill. Even with internationally trained physicians making up the shortfall, that only leaves the US maintaining rather than gaining ground on its physician shortage.

Trinity School of Medicine Hosts Forensic and Law Symposium on St. Vincent

In late November, Trinity School of Medicine collaborated with the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Medical Association, the St. Vincent Bar Association, and a number of other local entities, to host the second annual Forensic and the Law Symposium, specifically examining the intersection of the two titular topics. There was heavy student participation in the event, up to and including a session that better-prepared and helped satisfy requirements US physicians need to provide the best possible care in instances of suspected abuse in child patients at an emergency department. In the words of Dean Adkison, "The symposium was part of three intensive days of research and discussion on campus. And while for most of our graduates, the focus will remain on patients and providing care throughout their career, the students seemed to particularly appreciate another applied field of research for their developing expertise."

Trinity School of Medicine Holds 2017 Research Day
