Campus Life at Trinity School of Medicine

At Trinity, we create an environment that fosters student success. With a culture that places a high importance on hospitality, St. Vincent remains a very safe island with low crime rates. The island is a hidden gem of the Caribbean, without the high crime rates that typically surround more touristy island destinations.

 

For added peace of mind, the Trinity campus and all student housing facilities are guarded by 24-hour gated security. In addition, residence halls and apartments have complete access to Trinity’s transportation services. Our shuttle fleet transports students to and from Trinity-managed housing and campus as well as frequent trips to Kingstown, the local grocery store, and anywhere else you might need to go during your time on the island. The shuttles are operated by our friendly staff, who are dedicated to getting you where you need to go safely and on time.

Student Life

At Trinity, we well understand the pressure students face to meet the heavy demands of medical school. That’s why we work hard to reduce stress in their lives outside the classroom or hospital, starting from the first day on campus, continuing through clerkships, and into residency match.

Upon landing in St. Vincent, students are greeted by members of our welcoming committee and are transported to their furnished, fully-equipped and air-conditioned student housing. All Trinity-sponsored housing properties are conveniently located near campus and have 24-hour security, housekeeping, and high-speed internet. Shuttle vans provide transportation service between the campus, student housing, the teaching hospital, and the downtown market center.

 

Although the majority of students’ time is focused on their studies, St. Vincent provides a beautiful, tropical background with ecotourism opportunities, beautiful beaches, and wonderfully welcoming people. There are many opportunities to explore the island, participate in group activities, and relax between exams. This tropical island has all the recreation and leisure activities that you would expect from a Caribbean vacation destination, including hiking, sailing and scuba excursions. The Trinity campus also boasts volleyball, basketball, and gym facilities on campus.
