Three students: Afolami Fagorala, Cherelle Smith, and Sarah Celebi paid special visits to the Dr. J. P. Eustace Memorial High on Tuesday, 18th February, and the Intermediate High on Friday, 21st February with the mission of imparting information about HIV/AIDS to Third Form students of both secondary schools. The workshop began with a video presentation of cases of sexually transmitted infections, like gonorrhea, syphilis, and chlamydia.  According to the facilitators, the main aim was to draw out reactions from the participants, in order to fully engage them in the subject matter.

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.
