Rebecca Davis ’13 is a Spanish major who is looking forward to a career in emergency
medicine. She has already been accepted at George Washington University School of
Medicine based on her exceptional grade point average and stellar academic success.
In the first video, Davis shares how R-MC’s Pre-med
program helped prepare her for applying to medical school and why her fluency
in Spanish makes her unique in the medical field.
In the second video, Davis shares her experiences during a recent medical mission
trip to Honduras. She was instrumental in helping the team to communicate with the
patients because she speaks Spanish so well. Her father, Dr. Stephen Davis ’77,
led the mission trip. He is a cardiologist in Danville, VA.
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.
