When you’re establishing a school from the ground up, you have the ability to apply best practices in medical education without having to transition faculty, facilities and students to the new model.
Alpharetta, GA (PRWEB) February 8, 2010
Trinity School of Medicine will be hosting two Texas-based Information Sessions in February. The first event will take place in Houston, at 7:00pm on Tuesday, February 16, 2010, at the Sheraton North Houston located at 15700 JFK Blvd., Houston, TX 77032.
The second Information Open House will be held in Dallas at 7:00pm on Thursday, February 18, 2010, at the Sheraton Dallas North located at 4801 Lyndon B. Johnson Freeway, Dallas, TX 75244.
The Open House events are open to working professionals, college graduates and current college students interested in pursuing a career in medicine. Members of the faculty and administration of Trinity School of Medicine will present an overview of the Doctor of Medicine (MD) Degree Program focusing on the curriculum, faculty, and the advantages of being a student at Trinity.
“When you’re establishing a school from the ground up, you have the ability to apply best practices in medical education without having to transition faculty, facilities and students to the new model” stated Steve Wilson, a founder and President of Trinity School of Medicine. “We sought this type of excellence in the selection of our Dean, Dr. Richard Roberts, Professor Emeritus of Medicine at Weill Medical College of Cornell University, an institution consistently ranked amongst the top 20 U.S. medical schools. Equally important was the integration of the clinical sciences within the foundations of a medicine curriculum, made possible by our affiliation with Milton Cato Memorial Hospital, a teaching hospital in St. Vincent. This is a distinct advantage for Trinity students, they will gain significant experience engaging with patients under the supervision of our clinical faculty and will be better prepared for their clerkships in the United States“.
The presentations will highlight the admissions process including the prerequisite courses and MCAT exam scores needed to be eligible for admission. The events will conclude with an introduction to the Eastern Caribbean island nation of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, home to Trinity School of Medicine. Admission counselors will be available to speak one on one with attendees and to answer any questions about the Trinity experience.
Interested parties may register online at http://www.trinityschoolofmedicine.org/seminars and select either Houston or Dallas as their seminar location.
Trinity School of Medicine was founded in 2008 in response to the scarcity of seats available in Medical schools in the US and Canada, and as a way to combat the current physician shortage. Trinity offers a new path to opportunity for prospective physicians who thrive in an environment of small classes, low student to faculty ratios, and clinical experience that begins in the first term. With curriculum, training and standards modeled on North American medical schools, Trinity is accredited—meeting all U.S. requirements and international licensing—preparing students to sit for USMLE Step 1, 2 and 3 examinations as well as to be certified for participation in the National Residency Match Program (NRMP). Trinity School of Medicine is located on the island of St. Vincent in the Eastern Caribbean with U.S. headquarters in Alpharetta, GA, US.
