Becoming a Doctor of Medicine

Trinity School of Medicine students have the opportunity to participate in clinical rotations within the Houston Healthcare system in Warner Robins Georgia as well as with our additional partnering hospitals in the surrounding area, and also in Baltimore, Maryland. Houston Healthcare’s facilities, include the acute care Houston Medical Center, Perry Hospital, and the Houston Healthcare Pavilion. The HHC Pavilion houses the Houston Healthcare residency program, as well as the Trinity Medical Education Center..

The expansion of Trinity’s clerkship program to include Baltimore, Maryland, further increases the options available to our students. Such versatility in rotation sites gives students a broader exposure to diverse patient populations, medical conditions, and healthcare systems. This diversity is essential for cultivating adaptable, well-rounded physicians.

For students with an interest in Surgery or Internal Medicine, our partner hospitals in Baltimore that provide residency programs in these fields can be an invaluable stepping stone. Selecting rotations at these facilities offers a wealth of benefits, including the potential for building professional networks and gaining insight into the residency experience.

To ensure a seamless and efficient process, all rotations are meticulously scheduled by our dedicated clerkship administrators. With a focus on individualized attention, our students benefit from a low preceptor-to-student ratio during their rotations. They also have the unique advantage of completing their full 48 weeks of required elective rotations in one location, eliminating the need to relocate or wait for rotation slots to become available. This not only enhances their quality of life but also minimizes the cost of living. Additionally, Trinity offers a diverse array of away electives in numerous specialties, hosted in programs located across the country.

Trinity’s clerkship program has expanded to include rotation options in Baltimore, Maryland. Students now have the flexibility to undertake all or part of their clinical rotations in Baltimore. Students interested in Surgery and/or Internal Medicine residencies may choose to rotate through our hospital partner that has those residency programs. Rotating with residents may enhance a student’s ability to match into these specialties across the US. Some rotations may have an add-on cost to tuition due to the competitiveness of the rotation, but we keep the cost as affordable as possible. Some rotations do have attendance limitations so students must plan in advance. Trinity’s clerkship rotations are structured to provide valuable experience and broaden students’ understanding of diverse patient care settings. This location is particularly advantageous for our students from the Northeast, offering them the ability to complete rotations within a closer proximity to home with many transportation options. Educational equivalence is maintained by having weekly case-based learning experiences.
