Randolph-Macon College currently has partnerships with three regional medical schools. Faculty and advisors work closely with students interested in health-related careers and provide them with the support, guidance, and academic and clinical l experiences they need to gain acceptance into medical school. A BS/MD joint degree agreement between Randolph-Macon College and Eastern Virginia Medical School (EVMS) allows as many as four qualified R-MC students to receive guaranteed admission to EVMS. An Early Selection Program agreement with the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences will give qualified, second-year students the opportunity to gain a provisional acceptance to the medical school at George Washington. Lastly, a Preferred Applicant Track Agreement with Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) will accept two qualified, second-year students annually. Accepted R-MC students who maintain a 3.5 overall GPA and a 3.4 science GPA, and are in good academic and professional standing, will receive a formal offer of admission to the VCU School of Medicine.
