Humanism in Medicine Scholarship
Sponsored by Thieme Medical Publishers
Sponsored by Thieme Medical Publishers, the Humanism in Medicine Scholarship was created in remembrance of eight Osteopathic physicians who tragically lost their lives in the pursuit of improving patient care. This scholarship is a chance to highlight a student that exemplifies what it means to be an osteopathic physician. We look to award students who show compassion, leadership and enthusiasm for medicine, much like our fellow Osteopathic physicians who came before us, with this $1,000.00 award.
Fall 2020 Recipient
I want to thank you for your donation and contribution to my education. It is an honor to be selected as the recipient of the 2020 – 2021 Humanism in Medicine Scholarship. I am humbled knowing that this scholarship was created in remembrance of 8 physicians who lost their lives in the pursuit of giving back to patient care and that a portion of those qualities are reflected in my own journey as a student doctor.
My path leading into medicine was inspired through providing care and love to my grandparents in their final days, while learning to advocate on their behalf in the complex field of medicine. The qualities of leadership, compassion, and humanism have been instilled in me throughout my journey to medicine and continue to be a resounding force in the purpose and direction that I believe I am meant to serve. It is my intention to continue to pursue excellence in the human connection and distinction in the field of medicine. It is my hope to one day return to the communities in which I grew up in to serve the many vulnerable populations as a conduit for health promotion, literacy, and education. Through advocacy and legislation, community memberships and volunteerism, I hope to move in action of these words to create a positive change in society and those around me. Your kind donation is a direct reinforcement of these initiatives, to pursue and invigorate the human connection and foster the growth of humanism in medicine. I hope to represent the values held by those 8 physicians as I carry forward the same sense of determination and purpose into the field as a future Osteopathic physician.
