The goal of the Rice Alumni in Medicine (RAM) alumni group is to serve as a platform for collaboration between health care alumni, the medical community and Rice University students. RAM members facilitate this goal through student support, mentorship opportunities, lifelong learning and professional networking.
You can make a donation directly to RAM, which helps fund study materials for pre-med students, the annual RAM Pinning Ceremony, regional networking events, social programming and other events and programs. To contribute, please visit giving.rice.edu and indicate that your gift should go to “Rice Alumni in Medicine (RAM): G84061-057000” in the special instructions field of the giving form.
RAM proudly supports many educational programs. Consider volunteering your talent to help RAM support the Rice pre-med students through the following programs:
A key priority for RAM is helping to connect alumni who work in health care and medicine with current students. Alumni are encouraged to participate in mock interviews and the RAM mentorship program. To learn more about these initiatives, email Ishmeal Bradley ’03, chair of mentoring programs, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Members of RAM governance typically hold two-year terms. There is an annual business meeting each calendar year to discuss leadership transitions. We also fill empty positions on a rolling basis. We welcome anyone interested in joining the leadership team to contact us throughout the year.
