Mustique Medical Trust
Located on the island of Mustique, the Mustique Medical Trust was formed by the Mustique Co. to provide medical insurance to all Vincentians working on this privately owned island. The villa owners and shareholders of this luxury travel destination also wanted to dedicate resources to assist in the medical care of children from St. Vincent and the region. Since 2005, Mustique homeowners have been active supporters of International Hospital for Children’s work in providing access to critical care to children and building indigenous healthcare capacity.

Trinity School of Medicine was founded in 2007 in response to the developing shortage of physicians in the United States and Canada. Trinity offers a new path to opportunity for prospective physicians who thrive in an environment of small classes, frequent and personal attention from faculty, and a curriculum that integrates clinical experience into the first five semesters. Trinity School of Medicine’s curriculum, education, and standards for student success are based on the US model of medical education. Students at Trinity are eligible to sit for Step 1 and Step 2 of the United States Medical Licensure Examination and are eligible for certification to participate in the National Residency Match Program. Trinity School of Medicine is located on the island of St. Vincent in the Eastern Caribbean with US headquarters in Alpharetta, GA. Visit the web site for more about Trinity School of Medicine.
