Dr. Laville sees a bright future for students at RUSM

July 18, 2014

Dr. Agnes Laville, a native of Dominica has been a professor at Ross University School of Medicine (RUSM) since 1998.  She earned her BSc in Biochemistry as well as her PhD at the University of London before going on to the University of Barcelona where she was a research and development scientist for nine years.

She is also RUSM’s Associate Dean of Education focusing on the review of student academic progress and academic policy and she is an academic advisor, working closely with new students. Dr Laville said, “I love working with students and assisting them as they adjust to a new location, a new island, being away from home and adapting to a new culture.”

Dr. Laville participates in information seminars which are designed “to help prepare students for what they are about to find on campus. The seminars provide honest answers to the students’ questions, so as to paint a real picture of what is expected in Dominica.

“RUSM provides opportunities to students, and offers a lot of activities, clubs and organizations to keep them busy; the Student Government Association does a wonderful job,” Dr. Laville said. She added, “There are so many good things going on at RUSM now, with a new health clinic and the construction of a student center.”

Among the honors and awards that Dr. Laville has received during her professional career are the Hoecsht Iberica award in 1994 for the best scientific publication, a Bristol-Myers Squibb award for a scientific project in 1997, and the DeVry PRIDE award for excellence and service to students in 2006.
