Trent/Trinity Medical Sciences University Pathway
Your direct path to med school in the Caribbean and USA
When your dream is to become a doctor, it’s important to choose a medical school that gives you options. Under a new international partnership between Trent University and Trinity Medical Sciences University (TMSU), Trent students now have the opportunity to pursue their Doctor of Medicine amongst the tranquil beaches of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, as well as receive training and residency opportunities in the United States and Canada.
One of the top accredited schools in the Caribbean, Trinity offers medical students the opportunity to gain hands-on, clinical experience from day one. With smaller class sizes and clinical and residency opportunities across North America, the Trent/TMSU pathway provides students with a clear, defined path to becoming a practicing doctor.
How it Works
Students who are serious about pursuing a career in medicine are encouraged to enroll in Trent’s Medical Professional Stream (MPS), where they receive the direction and assistance they need to prepare for medical school. By successfully completing the MPS program, students prequalify for conditional acceptance to Trinity’s Doctor of Medicine program.
Once accepted at TMSU, students spend the first two years involved in comprehensive study, including clinical experience. By the third year, students at Trinity participate in clerkships in the United States, where they gain hands-on learning treating patients in several areas of medicine. This unique pathway also features an opportunity to receive an all-expenses paid clerkship in the USA during their undergrad, as well as generous scholarships. Those who attain a score of 490-494 on their MCATs will receive a bursary of $25,000 US, while students scoring 500 will receive $35,000 US.
Study in the Caribbean. Practice medicine anywhere.
Trinity is accredited by the World Federation of Medical Education and meets accreditation requirements for international medical schools in both Canada and the United States. Successful graduates of the program are qualified to complete their residencies and write their licensure exams in the US or Canada, giving them the ability to practice in either country upon completion of their residencies.
