Brother and sister, John-Henry and Rachael Lambin have just completed taking a final in their first year of medical school at UNR.

They've spent time here at the histology and pathology lab over the past year, but it was only a dream they would do it at the same time in the same medical school class.

“We kind of know how each of us learns, and kind of struggle with, what we are good at. I think we make a good team,” says Rachael.

“We've always been best friends and just so close. And I think that is why I wanted my best friend to be in school with me,” says John-Henry.

John-Henry was accepted right off the bat in October of 2016 his first try.

Rachael applied twice to UNR School of Medicine and was accepted in March of 2017.

“Actually checking the mailbox every day hoping she would get an acceptance letter,” says John-Henry.

The two have very different skills.

John-Henry is more mechanical minded. He says his sister more a problem solver.

She's also very artistic.

We first introduced you to Rachael back in December of 2016 as she created book art.

Taking pieces of paper and designing characters and objects that literally spring from the pages.

She started this Grey's Anatomy piece as a gift to the medical school one year ago.

Because of her studies she says it's taken her longer than normal. But she's been meticulous with the skeleton, as she finds the bones of the body most interesting.

This skeleton alone she says took one hundred hours and it’s still not complete.

That piece of art work will be donated to the medical school in the next couple of months.

The Lambin siblings will graduate later, class of 2021.
