Maggie Roth
Maggie graduated from UVA in 2013 with a BA in Biology. She planned to apply to medical school, but knew she wanted to enhance her academic candidacy. After graduation, Maggie completed the Georgetown Special Master's program where she took first year medical school classes with Georgetown M1 students. This was a great experience in preparing her for the workload of medical school. Following the one year graduate program, Maggie worked as a medical assistant in a dermatology office and volunteered in hospice. Seeking a change, the next year Maggie moved to Charleston, SC from northern VA for a service year with AmeriCorps VISTA. She worked with a non-profit called Veterans on Deck which uses sailing as a therapeutic outlet for veterans with PTSD. Between all of these experiences, Maggie was applying to medical school and taking some time to travel. Maggie is currently in her first year of medical school at VCU.
