Dr. Thomas Hubbard '75
Randolph-Macon College recently welcomed two new staff members to The Edge, Randolph-Macon’s four-year
program aimed at helping graduates lead the pack when competing for jobs and applying
to graduate schools.
The Edge program, within the
Center for Personal and Career Development, includes yearly workshops that
focus on: career and vocational identification; preparation for pre-professional
programs and grad school; internships
and work experience; and the job-search process or graduate school applications.
Thomas Hubbard, M.D., D.D.S ’75 will serve as Physician Liaison
for The Edge. Hubbard will be a link to medical schools,
dental schools, and other health-related professional schools. He will also assist
students in their academic preparation for applications to these schools and work
in partnership with the science faculty.
Hubbard earned his B.S. in chemistry from
Randolph-Macon College, his medical degree from Virginia Commonwealth University,
Medical College of Virginia School of Medicine, and his Doctor of Dental Surgery
from the University of Maryland, College Park.
Joshua Quinn, B.S., M.S. will serve as Medical Career Coordinator
for The Edge. Quinn will assist pre-health and
pre-medical students in their identification of medical career interests
and provide information about more than 80 medical-field job opportunities.
Coordinating with faculty advisors and science professors, Quinn will help keep
students on track for course requirements, required post-graduate testing and internship
and shadowing opportunities.
Hubbard and Quinn, whose positions were made possible as the result of a gift from
a generous alumnus, joined The Edge in July 2012. Linda
Carne, executive director of the Center for Personal and Career Development, is
thrilled about the newest members of The Edge staff.
“These two positions, coupled with our recently-created
Wornom Pre-Medicine Endowment, which provides full pre-med scholarships
to qualified science students, will give Randolph-Macon students a competitive advantage
in their post-graduate pursuits in the medical field,” says Carne.
