Go to medical school!
In fact, both of the Jefferson College Recent Alumni Achievement Award recipients for 2015 did just that:
Dr. Albert G. Pavalonis attended the Edward Via Virginia College of Osteopathic Medicine in Blacksburg, Virginia, where he was named Student of the Year in 2011. Dr. Pavalonis is a surgical resident at St. Barnabas Hospital in the Bronx, New York, NY. In 2013, he was recognized as the Surgical Intern of the Year at St. Barnabas.
Mr. Cornelius Powell is a medical student at East Tennessee State University in Johnson City, Tennessee. He has served on the Jefferson College of Health Sciences Alumni Board and, at East Tennessee State, in the Office of Student Representatives, as class president, and as the president of the Developing Leadership in Future Physicians Interest Group.
These two gentlemen represent the impressive group of men and women who have graduated from the Biomedical Sciences program and have then gone to medical school in recent years.
