AMA Foundation Presents $10,000 Scholarships to Promising Medical Students
Date:8/11/2008

ican Medical Association, the AMA Foundation has made it a priority to assist medical students in handling the rising cost of medical education. The Physicians of Tomorrow Scholarships were created in 2004 to provide financial assistance to medical students facing spiraling medical school debt. On average, medical students in the U.S. graduate with a debt load of nearly $140,000.

"The increase in average student debt loads and the declining availability of scholarship assistance threaten our ability to recruit and retain the best and brightest talent," said Howard. "High loan payments may deter students from following a career path into primary care medicine."

Since its founding in 1950, the AMA Foundation has advanced the health care of America through medical school scholarships, research grants and public health initiatives. Visit http://www.amafoundation.org for more information about the AMA Foundation's programs.
