Students Recognized for Scholastic Achievements at the Conference on Medical Student Education

February 13, 2014—The Society of Teachers of Family Medicine recognizes the scholastic achievements of the following medical students: Benjamin Adler, University of Massachusetts Medical School; Sharon Chacko, University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine; Karl Dietrich, Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth; Peter Meyers, University of Minnesota Medical School; Amanda Miller, KU School of Medicine—Wichita; Jessica Portillo, Pritzker School of Medicine at the University of Chicago; Maggie Reinsvold, University of Colorado School of Medicine; Hannah Rosenblum, Albert Einstein College; Ivana Simpson, Florida State University College of Medicine; and Tiffany Ho, John Hopkins University. 
Student scholars are selected for their demonstration of leadership, commitment to family medicine, and STFM's core values of integrity, a relationship-centered outlook, openness, nurturing, excellence, and learning. Students are nominated by their educators and submit a statement addressing how they demonstrate STFM's core values and how these values will guide their career.

Scholarship winners were presented at the Conference on Medical Student Education and received free registration and a travel stipend from the Medical Student Education Student Scholars Fund. The fund is managed by the STFM Foundation and supported through donations from conference attendees, family medicine departments, and STFM members. At the recent conference more than $6,000 was raised to support scholarships for next year's award recipients. The STFM Foundation will collect donations to support the fund throughout the year.

The nomination period for 2015 Student Scholars will open in October. The scholarship recipients will attend the 2015 Conference on Medical Student Education, February 5-8 in Atlanta, GA. For more information about the scholarships and nominations process, contact Cindy Burns
