Medical Education Research at Trinity

Fostering your Passion for Medical Advancement

Research & Publications

The quality of education at Trinity School of Medicine is demonstrated by the research and scholarly accomplishments of our students and faculty. Trinity students have numerous opportunities to get involved with research by partnering with professors on projects currently underway or even designing their own projects under the mentorship of faculty. Students may even have the opportunity to write and publish case reports during their early clinical exposure at Milton Cato Hospital in SVG. Once in clerkships, students have opportunities to partner with preceptors on research projects and case reports or complete a research elective rotation.

 

Another great resource for students is the Trinity Think Tank, a student-run organization that offers peer advising and helps inspire students to engage in research and other scholarly activities. Think Tank meetings allow students to break into focus groups based on their specialty of interest and work together to design and complete research projects. Peer mentors offer assistance on topics related to research, publication, presentation, statistical analysis, and medical conference attendance.
