Trinity School of Medicine Students Hold Carnival at Local Children's Home

Last week, the members of the Trinity Kid Companions held their annual children’s carnival. For those unaware, the event is for the residents of the St. Benedict Children’s Home and Day Nursery as well as the neighboring Bread of Life Orphanage. The children living at these homes are primarily orphans with a wide array of special needs.

While the student group works with the residents of the home year round, the carnival is a next-level day for everyone involved. The residents enjoy a long afternoon of fun, games, and other adaptive activities with their adult companions from Trinity School of Medicine. Read on for the story of the day and gallery.

Demystifying Title IV and an Exciting Student Loan Update from Trinity School of Medicine

After the US Department of Education's NCFMEA recognized our accreditation as comparable to the LCME, we received a number of questions about Title IV and future plans for Trinity. While we can't say it won't ever be an option for us, we are not currently offering Title IV loans for our students. The reasons why are fairly straightforward (it would limit access to Trinity for US students). There are some misunderstandings out there about how Title IV actually works, so we're going to dive into the entire situation here, today.

We're also going to cover our newly improved student loan program, and how it's actually a better deal than the current federal loans out there. Ready? Let's go.

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."
