Trinity Medical Sciences University is committed to the health and safety of our students, faculty, and the people of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. As such, we are closely monitoring the global outbreak of COVID-19. With the recent classification of a pandemic and with recommendations from the Center of Disease Control, the World Health Organization, and the government of St. Vincent, we have afforded our students the opportunity to return to their home countries and complete their Spring term online.
Our campus remains open and fully staffed for those students who choose to remain on the island of St. Vincent. In doing so, there will be no change to current employment status, pay, or benefits for those members of our Trinity Family.
“While the risk of contracting COVID-19 remains low, this continues to be a rapidly evolving situation. Trinity’s commitment to the health and well-being of our community is paramount. We are carefully monitoring the current situation in order to ensure the continued safety of our community, both in St. Vincent and the Grenadines and globally.” Dr. Francis Purcell, Provost and Dean, Trinity School of Medicine.
As we continue to monitor this current situation, along with all health professionals and organizations around the world, we will remain committed to providing our students, faculty, and the communities we serve with the tools, resources, and support to best navigate this current global health crisis.
