LOOKING TO THE CARIBBEAN FOR MEDICAL SCHOOL

Canadian Applicants

In Canada, an astonishing 81% of medical school applicants — many of whom would make phenomenal physicians — find themselves rejected from Canadian medical schools. A large percentage of those Canadian applicants denied acceptance look abroad, most of them to the Caribbean.

 

Trinity School of Medicine offers many benefits to Canadian students, but here are just a few.

  • Multiple types of Canadian scholarships available
  • Canadians can fly non-stop directly to St. Vincent and the Grenadines from Toronto.
  • Away electives available in Canada

The Opportunity to Practice in Canada

Trinity School of Medicine holds the highest level of accreditation possible with CAAM-HP (Caribbean Accreditation Authority for Education in Medicine and other Health Professions). Furthermore, the curriculum is based on Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) standards and earns recognition from the World Federation of Medical Education (WFME). Best of all, Trinity meets all standards put forth by the Education Committee for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) 2024 Rule that puts additional restrictions on foreign medical school graduates.

Affordable Education

Students who attend Trinity can use scholarships, grants, and loans to help finance their education. The Canadian federal and provincial governments recognize Trinity as an accredited institution and allow learners to use student loan programs at the school. Students with qualifying MCAT scores may also be eligible for financial aid scholarships and grants through the school.

Beautiful Environment

The average temperature in St. Vincent is 87 degrees year-round and averages about 12 hours of daylight each day.

 

No matter where students attend medical school, stressful times are bound to come. With exams, papers, classes, and clinical rotations, medical students have a lot on their minds. However, learners who go to Caribbean schools can recharge their minds on beautiful shores.

 

Studies have shown that being at the beach regularly can:

  • Increase creativity
  • Improve mood
  • Help people sleep better
  • Increase Vitamin D intake

 

When medical students get stressed out, they need a mental break. When they attend school in the Caribbean, these breaks can happen in serene areas that are scientifically proven to help.
