Trinity School of Medicine, St. Vincent and the Grenadines held a White Coat Ceremony for the students who will earn their Doctor of Medicine degree in as part of the Class of 2018. Twenty-five incoming students were robed with their White Coats at the impressive and inspiring event, which took place at the institution on Saturday, May 10th, 2014.

Nearly one third of the incoming students came from Canada with the other two thirds from the U.S. The 25 students earned their place in the program with strong academic credentials from large Universities and small Colleges including:

Recently, the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP) hosted the algorithim-based process of aligning doctors with residency positions in the United States. This competitive process, commonly known as "the Match," included over 52,000 applicants this year and amongst them were Trinity graduates from the U.S., Canada and the Caribbean. The 2014 participants were vying for post graduate education positions which resulted in 25,687 matched applicants to first year positions.

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.

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.
