Alyssa Warren ’13, a biology and
religious studies major, is the first Randolph-Macon College student to
be accepted to Eastern Virginia Medical School (EVMS). She’s thrilled because EVMS
has been her first choice since she discovered her passion for biology. In this
video, Warren talks about the one-on-one relationships she developed with her professors
and about the strength of Randolph-Macon’s Pre-Med program.
Medical School Partnerships
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.
