Dr. Andrea Bodale

Dr. Andrea Bodale

This edition of our alumni spotlight shines a bright light on Dr. Andrea Bodale. Originally from Arizona, Andrea attended Baylor University, earning a B.S. in Biology. Constant family visits to the hospital coupled with her desire to help others feel heard, eventually led her to pursue a career in medicine. Dr. Bodale is now in her final year of residency as a Chief Family Medicine Resident at her top choice program

Dr. Allison Laffoon

Dr. Allison Laffoon

In this edition of our alumni spotlight, we are proud to showcase Dr. Allison Laffoon. Dr. Laffoon's desire for medicine was sparked when her younger brother was diagnosed with severe autism when he was just 5-years-old. She recalls the countless doctors' appointments, tests, and other factors that eventually led to her brother's diagnosis. Her interest in medicine stems from these experiences as a young child. Laffoon attended the University of Iowa and received her MD from Trinity in 2018. She is now a general surgery resident at the University of Texas Health - San Antonio.

Dr. Maye Mohamed & Dr. Nada Mohamed

Dr. Maye Mohamed & Dr. Nada Mohamed

According to a recent study in Sweden, being born into a family where one or both parents are physicians greatly increases the likelihood that the children will also become physicians. For doctors and sisters Maye and Nada Mohamed, that certainly rings true. Both Dr. Maye Mohamed and Dr. Nada Mohamed are graduates of Trinity and we recently had the pleasure of sitting down with them to talk about their experiences as students, graduates, and healthcare providers.

Dr. Kyle Humphrey

At a recent White Coat Ceremony, Dr. Humphrey gave a testament to how Trinity shaped him into the physician he is today, saying “I was able to achieve my dream career goals through Trinity. I went to a top internal medicine academic institution and one of the top infectious disease programs in the US, especially in tropical medicine research."

Dr. Brielle Cartwright

Dr. Brielle Cartwright

When we asked Dr. Brielle Cartwright what inspired her to go into medicine, she said the answer was simple: "Wanting to advocate for mental health patients who cannot advocate for themselves." Now, as a Psychiatrist, she works hard to help her patients maintain their mental and emotional stability and provide an underserved population with the care they deserve.

From Canada to the Caribbean: Pursuing Medical School Abroad

If you are a Canadian who is considering med school, don’t miss our upcoming webinar “From Canada to the Caribbean: Pursuing Medical School Abroad” happening on Wednesday, July 17 at 8:30 pm EST. 80% of applicants to Canadian medical schools don’t receive admission anywhere, so it’s important to have a backup plan that will result in the same goal of becoming an MD. That's why Lisa Miller, Trinity's Regional Director of Admissions, is excited to share what she's learned over the past 20 years in the industry and help aspiring med students understand what to look for when choosing a Caribbean med school. Lisa will be joined by Grayson Routt, our Admissions Counselor who works exclusively with Canadian applicants. Together, Lisa and Grayson will discuss not only why Trinity is the best offshore option for aspiring Canadian med students, but also admission requirements, Canadian scholarships, loan procedures, residency expectations, and more.
