Trinity School of Medicine's AMSA Chapter Takes Part in Cancer Outreach and Support on St. Vincent

Posted by Trinity School of Medicine on Nov 7, 2016 12:50:34 PM

 As future physicians, healthcare outreach and awareness has always been a top-of-mind extracurricular activity for Trinity students, particularly it's AMSA (American Medical Student Association) chapter. It is for that reason that the organization collaborated with the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Medical Association (SVGMA), to once again host two events in Kingstown. Each event, one focused on prostate cancer (a 5k), the other on breast cancer (The Pink Cap City Walk), was held to educate, support, and entertain everyone from a curious general public looking to learn more about their own health, to cancer survivors and their families.

Trinity School of Medicine Alumni Spotlight: Dr. Kendra Allen, MD

Posted by Drew Muldowney on Oct 11, 2016 9:00:00 AM

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. Kendra Allen, chief resident of family medicine at the famous Henry Ford Health System in Detroit, Michigan. 

After graduating from Emory University, Dr. Allen was looking for two things from her immediate future: a path into medicine and a chance to study abroad. The opportunity to travel and Trinity's focus on student development and helping students meet their full and perhaps previously unrealized potential caught her eye, and she found herself soon packing for St. Vincent.

Trinity School of Medicine "Kid Companions" Fights Local HIV/AIDS Stigma, Plans Visits to Bread of Life Orphanage

Posted by Trinity School of Medicine on Oct 4, 2016 8:48:43 AM

In February of 2016, Trinity students founded a new group to provide mentorship and friendship to St. Vincent's ophan population. The organization, led by Trinity student Diane Freeman, has since established an extensive program of companionship and mentoring that caters to the children of the St. Benedict Children’s Home.

Shirley Samuel, who now functions as co-president of Kid Companions along with Emily Satkovich and Camille Olechowski, explained that the organization; while still concentrating on the St. Benedict Orphanage; had also formed an association with the
Bread of Life Orphanage, a facility that houses children diagnosed with HIV/AIDS or whose parents have died of AIDS. 

This facility has been in existence in St. Vincent and the Grenadines for over thirty years, and is run by Catholic Carmelite Sisters. It is home to children between the ages of one and eighteen. The children attend preschool, primary and secondary school and beyond while living at the orphanage.

Trinity School of Medicine, the ILP, and an Opportunity of a New Beginning

Posted by Drew Muldowney on Aug 25, 2016 2:53:21 PM

"When you enter med school, everything from undergrad vanishes and you start fresh. And that’s what Trinity gave me: a new platform to do my best in, the best environment to really thrive." 

This is one of the many things we love to hear from our students. The above was said by David
*, a third year student at Trinity, now in his rotations in Baltimore. David is a smart, hard working student that scored a 21 on the MCAT, went overlooked by the US med school system, enrolled in Trinity's ILP program, and thrived, scoring an impressive 244 on the Step-1 exam. (As a refresher, see below for what sort of doors a score like that can open for a match candidate).
