External Scholarship: Pisacano

The application for the 2023 Pisacano Scholars Leadership program is available online at www.pisacano.org. The due date is May 1, 2023.

The Pisacano Leadership Foundation (PLF) seeks to advance family medicine by providing well-educated, community-minded leaders in primary care. By aiding students who demonstrate the highest levels of commitment to family medicine, leadership qualities, academic performance, including evidence of clinical excellence and application of knowledge to clinical care, and communication skills and service, the PLF will promote the development of the future leaders in the specialty.

The Pisacano Scholars Leadership program is designed to provide educational programs, leadership training, and funding to reimburse a portion of medical-school-related debt. Scholarships will be awarded to outstanding medical students for a four-year period. Students who have made a commitment to the field of family medicine and who will enter their fourth year in medical school in the fall of 2023 may apply. The PLF will award up to 10 scholarships with a maximum value of $28,000 each for the 2023-24 academic year.

Two NEOMED graduates have received this prestigious award in recent years. If you have questions, please contact Jane Ireland: jireland@theabfm.org or 859-287-0948.
