Trinity School of Medicine: Setting New Standards for Caribbean Medical Schools

At Trinity School of Medicine, our guiding vision is clear, "To improve access to scientifically-based quality health care and enhance the health status of the residents of the communities served by our graduates." That perspective shapes every decision we make, from the largest pedagogical philosophy to the smallest detail of student life. It guides us from within, and creates new goals with each achievement.

However, this letter brought the circumstances students at another institution find themselves. It makes it adamantly clear that while Caribbean medical schools exist because there is a need in the US and Canada going unfulfilled, not all of them are created equally.
