Five graduates of the Saint Vincent College Herbert W. Boyer School of Natural Sciences, Mathematics and Computing have been accepted to professional health schools and will pursue studies in dentistry, osteopathy, optometry or veterinary medicine. Dr. Stephen Jodis, right, dean, congratulates, from left, Marla Crawford, a biology major from Valencia, Indiana University Bloomington School of Optometry; Jacob Fox, a biochemistry major from Ligonier, Pennsylvania College of Optometry at Salus University; Dakota Hutchinson, a biology major from Rector, The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine; Peter Montini, a chemistry major from New Castle, University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine; and Paul Steinhauser, a biology major from Greensburg, Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. Admission to professional schools is highly competitive and Saint Vincent College’s pre-professional health committee, composed of faculty from within and outside the natural sciences, works closely with individual students to help them achieve their goals. They assist with selection of courses and extracurricular experiences and provide opportunities to learn about admission, schools and careers. Acceptance to professional schools is based on academic performance, commitment to service, knowledge of the health professions, interpersonal skills, leadership and professional school admission examinations. Dr. James Barnett, professor of biology, and Dr. Michael Rhodes, associate professor of biology, are co-chairpersons of the Pre-Professional Health Committee.
