Checking in with Our Summer Scholars Students...
We are so proud of the inaugural cohort of OSMA Foundation Summer Scholars. Thanks to your generous support, the OSMA Foundation awarded six stipends to help medical students pursue summer internships—opportunities that without these stipends, would have been unpaid. Here are the latest reflections from a couple of our Summer Scholars about what their experience has meant to them in their medical education:
“My experiences this summer have reinforced my interest in having a career where I can impact the health and social wellness of vulnerable populations. I am really grateful for the scholarship provided by OSMA and would not have been able to invest in my projects as much without it. I encourage anyone who can donate to do so as students really need it.”
– Rebekah Russell, M1 Case Western Reserve
“The support I received through the this program provided me the flexibility to pursue additional opportunities outside my internship clinic duties. And the professional networking as a member of the Summer Scholars cohort has been beneficial in connecting me with doctors who lend perspective on what activities are worth pursuing during my medical training on top of the attitudes that have best served them throughout their schooling.”
– Matthew Yoder, M1 OSUMC
