Virgil News and Announcements
VIRGIL MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCE MAGNET

Virgil will open its doors for the 2014-15 school year
with a partnership with Kaiser Permanente.

During the 2013-14 school year, we had a large group of students who had an opportunity to get to know physicians and their personal stories as to how and why they became doctors. Students and their families attended a financial aid workshop to learn about the costs and how to be able to afford and get into medical school. The field trips to the hospital were the students’ favorite part. At the hospital they got to see what the doctors and other health professionals actually do. Under the supervision of a cardiologist, students even had an opportunity to dissect and learn about a sheep’s heart!

Since our capacity is limited, only the first 113 applicants will be considered. If you have already submitted your application, there is nothing else you need to do. For those of you interested who have not yet applied your application must be received no later than July 18, 2014
