Three Medical School Students Garner National Scholarships

Three second-year students of NSU College of Osteopathic Medicine were awarded ACOFP Auxiliary scholarships during the 52nd Annual American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians (ACOFP) National Convention held March 12-15 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

William Gunther and Karin Hwang won two of the 20 Osteopathic Family Medicine Student Scholarships, which recognize medical students who have an interest in family medicine and the ACOFP. Each awardee received $1,000 each to help defray medical school and/or personal expenses.

Terry Parsons, who was a recent president of the college’s ACOFP student chapter and is parliamentarian of the ACOFP’s National Student Executive Board, won an Emerging Osteopathic Leader Scholarship, which is awarded to emerging osteopathic student leaders involved in family medicine and the ACOFP. This coveted award is given to two osteopathic student leaders in order to affirm the recipients’ interest in the association leadership and provides $2,500 in helping defray medical school costs and personal expenses.
