Joel Bascombe: The journey continues - EntornoInteligente /

Vincentian Joel Bascombe was officially inducted into the Class of 2023 of Trinity School of Medicine, when he received his White Coat on Saturday 11th January.  This induction into medical school, however, did not signal the beginning of Joel’s journey towards the fulfillment of a dream he had held since a child.   Throughout his primary and secondary school years, his journey imitating “the doctor,” was a constant reminder of his life goal.  Community College gave him the appropriate requirements into the pre-med programme, which he took for two terms at Trinity School of Biomedical Sciences in May of 2019.   Reflecting on pre-med, Joel recalled, “It wasn’t a very easy journey;  nothing good comes easy.  A lot of times, I had to reevaluate myself, but I had a lot of encouragement.  The lecturers here have been helpful.  I spent so much time one-on-one with them…. without feeling as if I was intruding.  I had a ‘Squad’ for whom I’m very thankful: Azaria, Akeema, and Mamud.  We studied together…pulled each other through..we were all for one.” The white coat symbolizes entry into the Doctor of Medicine (MD), which includes early clinical rotations at the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital.   “The pre-med is really geared to prepare students for the MD programme,” he said, “I think I’ve already got my studying habits on par and understand what is required of me.  I just have to put back in that effort, this time twice more! ” This resolve is encouraged by two persons in particular:  his mom, Ms. Donna Job and Mrs. Susan Joachim, a member of his church.  Of his mom, he said, “My mom is not rich or anything, and there have been times when we have been on our low-low, but she has done everything she possibly could to keep me in school and encourage me.  Even when she could not physically help me with work, her motivation never stopped.  I’m the first person in my family to go to university, and she uses me as a role model for my siblings.  She is as proud as ever!” Mrs. Joachim he met while transitioning from college into the work force, “and she has really been by my side and, along with Archbishop Jason Gordon, has been very instrumental in getting me from where I was to where I am now,” Joel said.  Now, as his journey takes a defined course, Joel Bascombe is resolved to conquer it just like all the previous challenges.  In his own words: “I often remember the situations which I came from and the situation I am in now, and you often find that these broken situations that we’re sometimes born into, act as the catalyst that pushes us into great things.  I just have to keep on pushing!”
