    Hi Matt,
    If you have been accepted, then you can also join the accepted students facebook group to meet others in your class! You can also ask questions to our student ambassadors (current students) on island life, curriculum, what to bring, etc!

    If you have not applied yet, you can send me a message and I can put you in touch with some of our current students!

    If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask! I lived in St. Vincent for the last 4 1/2 years and can try to answer them myself

    Thanks Dr. Bell! I have been accepted to TSOM and am planning to visit the island soon. Any word on the new airport opening? Also, I've noticed that airline tickets have skyrocketed over the past week. Any tips? I'll be traveling out of Austin or Houston, TX.

    Thanks!

    Hi Matt! congrats!! You will love the island! I miss it everyday Also, the first planes are landing at the Argyle International Airport tomorrow (Feb. 14, 2017)!

    Some airfare tricks I always used:
    1. use the skyscanner app - it is the best!
    2. check the jetblue/american airlines websites directly
    3. book the US carriers separately from Liat- sometimes the entire ticket on 1 itinerary gets wonky. book direct to BGI and then just hop over to SVG with Liat.
    4. clear your cookies and use an incognito web browser when you are shopping!

    If you need any specific help, please feel free to email me or one of the other admissions team members!

    Thanks a ton for those tips. Finally got tickets purchased. I was awaiting the new airport in hopes of more direct flights, but they're not scheduled yet. So I took what I could.

    I'll see y'all on the island next month!

    Hi Everyone,

    Thank you Dr.Bell for the Facebook page information. I will be starting May 2017 and wanted to know of any items you recommend bringing with me, I am from Georgia. To all of those curious about Trinity school of medicine, my experience with the admissions team and financial department has been exceptional, they have really exceeded all of my expectations and walked me through each step of the process. I was accepted to other international programs but I did not chose them because the interactions I had with their recruiting team was not great and they dont offer as many financial options as Trinity. So as I begin my journey i will keep everyone updated, if I can figure out how, i'll start a thread, lol. Thanks

    Danielle,

    Please keep us posted. I'm really curious. I've become spooked recently about the Caribbean schools after talking to several people who have successfully made it through. I even talked to one guy who successfully completed his MD (different school) to only not get into a residency for several years. His career is now that of an educator, unable to practice medicine on patients. I've also talked to several successful physicians who have recapped their hurdles with the process of being an FMG. Its making me feel cold feet. So please keep us posted!

    I'm planning to visit the island next month before I commit one way or the other.

    All the best,

    ŚMatt

    Hi Danielle,

    The #1 item you should make sure to remember is your favorite pillow! Sleep is crucial and a good pillow is key

    I also highly recommend McCormick steak seasoning. I know it sounds silly, but it is so delicious on steaks, chicken, fish and (my favorite) avocado toast! I never found it on the island so I would always bring extra to the island.

    When packing clothes, remember the climate is warm and tropical. Pack extra tee's, shorts, hats, sunglasses, etc. You will need a few nice outfits, but don't bring your Louboutins because you will never wear them!

    Don't forget extra personal items like contacts or medications. You can get basic stuff like shampoo and toothpaste easily on the island so you don't need basics, but anything that you use that is special make sure you pack enough for the entire 15 week term.

    You should have a checklist that the student ambassadors put together, but those are my top recommendations!

    As always, if you have any questions, don't hesitate to email or call

    -Dr. Bell
