Trinity School of Medicine Alumni Spotlight: Dr. Thomas Oliver, MD, CFPC

Trinity School of Medicine has always prided itself on the strength and ambition of its students. So many of our future physicians come our way looking for something new; whether that's a unique learning environment built on support and a strong relationship with the faculty, a curriculum with an emphasis on clinical skills and service to patients, or just a fresh start. In this next edition of our alumni spotlight, meet Dr. Thomas Oliver, MD, CFPC.

Something Different

Dr. Oliver is our focus here not just for his time at Trinity, but also for what he's given back to the school and other Canadian students. As Trinity's first Canadian student and a member of our first class, as you will come to find out over the course of this piece, he is a pioneer and we couldn't be more proud of his accomplishments.

Tuition, Debt, and Medicine: The intersection of cost and value for future doctors

According to the Association of American Medical Colleges, over 80% of medical school graduates leave school with debt. The median amount of education debt carried by U.S. medical graduates in 2015 was over $180,000. This is significant but surmountable, given the salary of a physician. However, the bigger Caribbean schools do not leave students with an average amount of academic debt. In fact, they can leave them repaying nearly twice as much. They also force students to deal with high attrition rates, 300+ member starting classes, and a sink-or-swim approach to both basic sciences and clinical rotations. 

The question, then, is this: is the greater cost worth it? Do you truly "get what you pay for" in that environment? Or is there a better option? One that also has a demonstrably better dedication to your future? Financially, culturally, academically, and professionally? 

We think so. And it shows in tuition, outcomes, and ROI.
