Scholarship To Support LGBTQ+ Healthcare
A basic tenet of osteopathic medicine is that rational treatment for each patient must focus on the body unit: body, mind, and spirit.
Patients in the LGBTQ+ community have always had unique healthcare needs that have not always been well understood by members of their healthcare team.
The Foundation will identify student physicians that are part of and committed to serving this unique population and support their osteopathic medical education.
Scholarship To Support Medical Students from Historically Underrepresented Groups
Overcoming healthcare disparities is an important part of good public health policy and is an issue that needs attention in our society.
While the Foundation believes that quality and compassionate patient treatment, rooted in the tenets of osteopathic medicine, extends beyond race and ethnicity, we also believe that having a more diverse physician pool will help eliminate healthcare disparities.
The Foundation will identify student physicians from historically underrepresented groups that are committed to serving patients and breaking down the barriers that lead to healthcare disparities.
