Trinity School of Medicine Holds Funeral for Retired Cadaver

Trinity is not a typical medical school. Beyond its dogged attempt to continuously evaluate and improve its own curriculum, it is an institution dedicated to living its declared culture of caring and service. It's a crucial part of a student's education: if Trinity wants to produce physicians that go the extra mile for their patients, Trinity must always do whatever it can to go the extra mile itself.

An excellent example of this is "Walter."

Individualized Learning: Yet another Path to Success at Trinity

Trinity is focused on educating and guiding the next generation of skilled, dedicated physicians. As we've made abundantly clear, we consider your experience, background, and passions beyond academia a crucial component of this, which is why we put so much emphasis on the interview (speaking frankly, having our committees evaluate a candidate's grades and test scores in the context of their experiences and overall character gives us a much more robust framework to evaluate them for acceptance).
 
As a result, we meet driven students who are going to make remarkable doctors if they're given the best opportunity available to them. To address this, we offer the Individualized Learning Plan (ILP).

The students not only triaged the one hundred and seventy-eight seen on that day, they observed the procedures and interactions with the visiting doctors
