The University of New Mexico’s Combined BA/MD Degree Progr[auth] am is pleased to announce that Goddard High School senior Jake Soens will be joining the program in the fall of 2017.
Soens will begin work this fall on a baccalaureate degree through the UNM College of Arts & Sciences. Together, all 28 students in his cohort will take on a challenging four-year curriculum designed to prepare them for medical school.
An admission committee selected this year’s 28 students from an applicant pool of 181 high school seniors across New Mexico and the Navajo Nation.
When they have successfully completed the undergraduate requirements of the program, students will enter the School of Medicine to complete their doctor of medicine (MD) degree, intending to practice medicine in New Mexico upon completion of medical school and residency.
Seven Roswell graduates have joined the program in previous years.
