GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Five students heading to Furman University in August have been selected as the first participants in a new program that will also grant them simultaneous admission to medical school, according to a news release from Furman.

The Furman University-University of South Carolina (USC) School of Medicine Greenville Direct Entry Program aims to help incoming Furman students chart a path to medical school at the USC School of Medicine Greenville. The new program grew out of Furman’s existing partnership with Greenville Health System.

The incoming students are Samuel Cumby of St. Joseph’s Catholic School in Greenville; Javonia Davis of Charleston Collegiate High School in Johns Island; Sarah Feingold of Academic Magnet High School in Charleston; Bhumika Jakkaraddi of Southside High School in Greenville, and Riley Taylor of Greenwood Christian School in Greenwood.
