Where can I Get a Residency? Get Licensed? Trinity School of Medicine MD

[Updated on 3/9/2017]

Will I be able to practice in Canada, in the U.S. or near home?  Is Trinity approved, accredited, recognized? Can Caribbean medical school students compete with U.S. Medical students in the Residency match? These are some of our most frequently asked questions from prospective students considering Caribbean medical schools. To help answer these questions we've gathered information from reputable and authoritative sources: the American Medical Association (AMA), the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) and from the individual Medical Boards of North American. We hope to bring clarity to the vast amount of misinformation and opinion generated by internet searches, pre-med forums and other less-than-reputable sites.

The following videos from 2013 showcase our students describing the unique qualities that are positioning them for success:

When so much of your future rides on scores earned on the USMLE Step exams, it's important to have an advantage going into test time.  Because the competition for a Residency position includes US Medical school seniors as well as other International Medical Graduates (IMGs), just passing Step 1 isn't enough.
