The Pisacano Leadership Foundation seeks to advance the specialty of family medicine by professionally and financially assisting accomplished individuals in their quest to achieve excellence in family medicine. To learn more on the mission and goals of the Pisacano Leadership Foundation, please review their website.
The application deadline is March 1, 2021. This opportunity is only available to medical students who will be starting their fourth year in the fall of 2021 who will be seeking a family medicine residency. If you are eligible, I would highly recommend that you apply and begin your application as soon as possible. There are a number of items that need to be submitted and it’s important to give yourself ample time to prepare your application.
NEOMED has had two students receive this prestigious award. One of our alumni, Dr. Elizabeth Looney, received the Pisacano Leadership Foundation Scholarship in 2015. One of our current NEOMED students, AuBree LaForce, received the Pisacano Leadership Foundation Scholarship this year. You can hear more on her story from the Pisacano Leadership Foundation and The Pulse.
Best of luck to those who apply!
