Trinity School of Medicine Celebrates Residency Match Success in 2017: New Programs, New States, and a Growing Reputation in Healthcare

For those who aren't aware, once a year, the National Residency Match Program (NRMP) releases all of the new residencies for the upcoming year, typically very soon after Canada's own CaRMS releases their match results. These days also coincide closely with graduation, which makes it a very exciting Spring.

Residency, lasting anywhere from 3-8 years, is where students are shaped by their specialization, and even at their completion, often leads students on to fellowships to further refine and specialize, depending on their interests and career goals.

Trinity School of Medicine's AMSA Members Provide Health Screenings at St. Vincent "Glow Run."

Trinity School of Medicine's American Medical Students Association chapter recently took part in providing fitness assessments for participants in the first ever Glow Run, a night-time running event that recently took place on St. Vincent. The fun-run had its participants decked out in glow sticks, as well as irridescent and UV-reactive paints similar to the Color Run phenomenon in the US.  

The event, hosted by Islandwide Fitness, was for diabetes awareness, a chronic issue for St. Vincent. Participants took off from the Richmond Hill Playing Field on Murray’s Road and moved on towards the SOV Restaurant in Villa.  Before their departure, all runners were given medical checks for both blood sugar and blood pressure.
