16 FAMU Rattlers Head to Medical School This Fall

Florida A&M University students and faculty member’s hard work paid off recently with the news that 16 FAMU graduates will be enrolling at medical schools across the country in fall 2008.

“The goal of the College of Arts and Sciences is to adequately prepare students in many disciplines, which will in turn make a positive impact on mankind,” said Ralph Turner, Ph.D., dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. “This well-planned program for students majoring in pre-professional or premedical tracks, designed to help meet the national and international health care demands of our society, is admirable and absolutely necessary for this day and time.”

FAMU hosts workshops for general pre-professional school information, writing a personal statement, interviewing skills and a mock interview for all university students and works with students to help place them in physician-shadowing programs.
