Medical & Veterinary School Pathways
Aspiring to be a doctor or a veterinarian? Trent has developed unique partnerships that set our students on the path to gain direct entry from the Medical Professional Stream (MPS) into your choice of respected medical/veterinary schools in the sunny Caribbean.
Meet the requirements of this pathway and travel to the oceanfront campus of St. George’s University in Grenada, West Indies where you will be guaranteed entry into either the School of Medicine or School of Veterinary Medicine. As part of the SGU medical school, students can complete clinical rotations at hospitals in the US or the UK. Graduates are qualified to write their US and Canadian licensure exams and complete residencies in the US, Canada or the UK. Students in the School of Veterinary Medicine complete their first three years of study at St. George’s, before heading off for their final clinical year at
affiliated veterinary schools in the US, UK, Canada, Australia or Ireland. Successful graduates of the St. Georges School of Veterinary Medicine can be licensed to practice in either Canada or the US.
After completing your undergrad in Trent’s MPS you can pursue your MD at The University of Medicine and Health Sciences (UMHS), one of the Caribbean’s most prestigious medical schools in sunny St. Kitts.
While studying at UMHS, students will gain a thorough understanding of biomedical sciences (semesters 1-4) required for a career as a medical doctor before relocating to UMHS’s campus in Portland Maine for one semester. During the Portland Maine semester, students prepare for the United States Licensing Exams (Step 1), a requirement to proceed to the clinical portion of the program. Semesters 6-10 are spent completing core and elective clinical rotations with opportunities to attain residency and graduate with licensing across the US and Canada
Gain experience in three countries on the road to your medical degree. Through this pathway to Trinity Medical Science University, graduates of Trent’s Medical Professional Stream will be able to pursue their MD at TMSU in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, as well as their campuses in the United States. This partnership between Trent and Trinity also offers a competitive opportunity to pursue a mini clerkship in your second or third year at Trent at TMSU’s teaching hospitals in the USA. At Trinity, one of the top accredited schools in the Caribbean, clinical experience begins in the first term as MD students, and continue throughout your training. Following two years of comprehensive study, including clinical experience, you can transition to the U.S. for clinical clerkships. Successful graduates of the Trinity medical school are qualified to complete their residencies and write their licensure exams in the US or Canada.
