Trinity School of Medicine's 2016: New Faces, New Achievements, New Goals

Calling 2016 a big year for Trinity School of Medicine is an understatement.

At the end of last year, we called 2015 "A Year in Service, with Another to Come." We were proud of our students, but that title was issued almost as a challenge. To nobody's surprise, Trinity's students rose to that challenge and surpassed it.

The following stories represents Trinity students taking part in several hundred acute and chronic care encounters, over two dozen 77 gallon shipping barrels' worth of supplies, and very specific, active outreach for orphaned children with HIV, AIDS, and developmental issues.

The continued outreach activities of our students, done on their own limited freetime while in the middle of medical school, should tell you precisely what sort of person is both attracted to Trinity School of Medicine and what sort of mindset we find it takes to become a physician the world needs.

Trinity School of Medicine Students Combine Study Break and Outreach, Host Carnival at Children's Home

 Trinity School of Medicine's student group "Kid Companions" returned to the St. Benedict Day Nursery and Children's Home in Georgetown, St. Vincent at the end of November, continuing their service, this time, to host a carnival for the home's residents. 

Since it's founding in February of 2016, Kid Companions has made regular visits to St. Benedict Day Nursery and Children’s Home (the last being in early October). Each visit is organized to provide entertainment and support of a different kind, and includes activities like playing games, coloring, and painting. While Trinity's involved students are very busy with their own medical education, they still endeavor to add a new element of support, stability, and fun for the home's residents.
