UVI SOPHOMORES IN EARLY MED SCHOOL PROGRAM

Three UVI sophomores have just learned of their acceptance to the Early Medical School Selection Program at Boston University.
Janelle Rossington, April Hurlston, and Gale Hobson had traveled to Boston in late March to be interviewed for the program.
UVI is one of only 10 undergraduate colleges selected by Boston University Medical School to participate in the program, which admits academically talented undergraduate science majors to the medical school early. Participating colleges are selected based on the strengths of their science programs and faculty.
"Science is certainly one of our strengths. This community must be proud of what its university has been able to achieve nationally and of the recognition we have gained", said UVI President Orville Kean.
UVI graduates of the program include the following medical doctors: Drs. Richard Brown, Tarsha Brown, and Lisa Burroughs of St. Croix, and Drs. Lauren Nandlal Brown and Joanne Murren of St. Thomas. Currently, there are nine other UVI students at various stages in the competitive Boston medical program: Cherise Ward, Pearl Christie, Brian Martin, Glenville Morton, Kirsten Shuck, Sione George, and Fyama Wenner of St. Thomas; Dorette Noorhassen and Marisel Noorhassen of St. Croix.
The program liaison, Dr. Gwen-Marie Moolenaar, can be reached at 693-1041 or
693-1048 for information about the program.
