The group was, as always, graciously welcomed by a department representative, social worker Kevan Glasgow.

Trinity School of Medicine held its Fifth Term Ceremony for the class of 2019 on campus last week. With colleagues, faculty, staff, relatives, family, and friends in attendance, the stage was set for students to reflect on the past two years in St. Vincent and the Grenadines and prepare for the subsequent years in Baltimore, Maryland for their clinical rotations.

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.
Because that guidance comes from within, we don't look outward that often, at the other schools in our region. 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.

There has been a flurry of coverage on international medical education, lately. These pieces have painted an interesting picture of the sometimes under-noticed benefits to patients and hospitals as well as the pragmatic and necessary contributions to public health. We thought we'd weigh in on these and offer some of our own perspective.

Trinity School of Medicine's American Medical Students Association chapter recently took part in providing fitness assessments for participants in the first ever Glow Run, a night-time running event that recently took place on St. Vincent. The fun-run had its participants decked out in glow sticks, as well as irridescent and UV-reactive paints similar to the Color Run phenomenon in the US.
The event, hosted by Islandwide Fitness, was for diabetes awareness, a chronic issue for St. Vincent. Participants took off from the Richmond Hill Playing Field on Murray’s Road and moved on towards the SOV Restaurant in Villa. Before their departure, all runners were given medical checks for both blood sugar and blood pressure.

Trinity School of Medicine is an institution with a culture of service and community engagement. And while many of the outreach opportunities are provided by the school itself, so many are grass roots student organizations. Kid Companions is a fantastic example of this sort of proactive community service, showing that Trinity students are already walking the walk of bedside manner and taking the initiative on their own to keep the humanity in medicine. Read on to see, once again, why we're so proud of our students as they are today, and the doctors they will become.
