Your success is our mission.
The founders of Trinity were determined to develop a learning environment focused on student success that closely resembles a U.S. medical school, where students benefit from small class sizes, a low student-to-faculty ratio, and a U.S.-style medical center environment for clinical clerkships. Trinity goes far beyond simply teaching basic sciences in the first two years; we immediately integrate clinical exposure by having students begin clinical training during their very first term. These activities are available through the local teaching hospital, and the many partnerships we have developed with organizations in St. Vincent. This early clinical training sets Trinity apart from other medical schools and allows students to build confidence and patient rapport skills that can only be learned with hands-on experience.
The faculty at Trinity School of Medicine are highly-qualified credentialed educators who are passionate about teaching. Because of our low student-to-faculty ratio, the person teaching you will actually know your name. Our faculty demonstrates a true commitment to the success of students, proving that the challenges of medical school are much more manageable when others around you are as invested in your success as you are.
Trinity’s educators keep these core objectives at the forefront of their teaching approach:
Trinity School of Medicine uses an integrated medical curriculum that involves ten terms of basic sciences and clinical study designed to meet our established core competencies. Trinity School of Medicine’s curriculum goes the extra mile for student success and includes a fifth term focused on preparing students for Step 1 and clinical clerkship training.
Our clinical program offers a community environment where students can maintain close connection in supportive networks for their entire third and fourth years. This is a major advantage Trinity has over other international medical schools, where students may be scattered among multiple locations and required to move between sites for rotations. Our students benefit greatly from a financial perspective, often saving tens of thousands of dollars in relocation fees. One clinical location allows students to grow and network from the deep connections they make with faculty physicians.
