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

Posted by Drew Muldowney on Dec 30, 2016 8:56:00 AM

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

Posted by Trinity School of Medicine on Dec 13, 2016 12:00:00 PM

 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.

Trinity School of Medicine Alumni Spotlight: Dr. Kendra Allen, MD

Posted by Drew Muldowney on Oct 11, 2016 9:00:00 AM

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. Kendra Allen, chief resident of family medicine at a major health system* in Detroit, Michigan. 

After graduating from Emory University, Dr. Allen was looking for two things from her immediate future: a path into medicine and a chance to study abroad. The opportunity to travel and Trinity's focus on student development and helping students meet their full and perhaps previously unrealized potential caught her eye, and she found herself soon packing for St. Vincent.

Posted by Trinity School of Medicine on Oct 4, 2016 8:48:43 AM

In February of 2016, Trinity students founded a new group to provide mentorship and friendship to St. Vincent's ophan population. The organization, led by Trinity student Diane Freeman, has since established an extensive program of companionship and mentoring that caters to the children of the St. Benedict Children’s Home.

Shirley Samuel, who now functions as co-president of Kid Companions along with Emily Satkovich and Camille Olechowski, explained that the organization; while still concentrating on the St. Benedict Orphanage; had also formed an association with the
Bread of Life Orphanage, a facility that houses children diagnosed with HIV/AIDS or whose parents have died of AIDS. 

This facility has been in existence in St. Vincent and the Grenadines for over thirty years, and is run by Catholic Carmelite Sisters. It is home to children between the ages of one and eighteen. The children attend preschool, primary and secondary school and beyond while living at the orphanage.
