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.

Trinity School of Medicine Students again Join Village Doctor Exercise, Combine Experience with Service

Areas of St. Vincent and the Grenadines have minimal access to medical specialists and equipment. Fortunately, these areas are served through partnerships like the one forged by the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Rotary Club and Trinity School of Medicine through the Village Doctor exercise.

On the most recent trip, the community of Fancy (the most northerly residential area on the eastern side of the island of St. Vincent itself) welcomed a caravan of vehicles full of medical professionals and Trinity students with the major aim of providing medical care and provisioning (or, where necessary, re-provisioning) of life saving medicines.
