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.

Charting Successful Outcomes: Trinity Students in Caribbean Medical School Compete

When we interview Applicants and ask them why they chose to apply to Trinity School of Medicine it's usually for the factors that differentiate our MD program from other Caribbean medical schools:  Class sizes that are relatively small (from 25-75 depending on the term); clinical experience at our affiliated teaching hospital that starts in your first term; and the experienced leadership in our Dean, Dr. Skelton.
