From: Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine
Each year, the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine accepts three students into the Early Identification Program, which provides intensive medical school preparation during two summer sessions. Completing both summers of enrichment and maintaining all program requirements can help any participant to become a competitive applicant to medical school but in particular participants who have been impacted by disparate barriers, which may include, but are not limited to, participants from groups that are underrepresented in medicine.
During the first summer, selected students participate in a 10-week summer program that provides an opportunity to engage in hands-on, hypothesis-driven independent research at the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute at VTC in Roanoke, Virginia. The Summer 1 program blends an emphasis on research with an introduction to clinical skills and MCAT overview and preparation.
During the second summer, selected students participate in six weeks of clinical rotations throughout various departments at Carilion Clinic facilities in Roanoke, Virginia. The Summer 2 program emphasizes a range of clinical experiences, intensive MCAT preparation, and advising on the American Medical College Application Service (AMCAS) application.
