Five students recognized at the Conference on Medical Student Education for their scholastic achievements
LEAWOOD, Kan. — The Society of Teachers of Family Medicine recognizes the scholastic achievements of the following medical students: Chandra Campbell, Loyola University; Rebecca Levine, University of Chicago; Colleen Loo-Gross, University of Kansas, Wichita; Andrew Lutzkanin, Penn State University, and Sarah Selig, Stanford University.
Medical student educators nominate prospective student scholars who demonstrate leadership, and commitment to family medicine and adhere to STFM's core values of integrity, a relationship-centered outlook, openness, nurturing, excellence, and learning. Student nominees are then invited to apply to the final round of the scholarship process in which a panel reviews their scholastic achievements and chooses the year's winners.
This year, STFM offered scholarships to five outstanding medical students. Scholarship winners are provided the opportunity to showcase their work to educators and fellow students at the Conference on Medical Student Education and receive free registration and a travel stipend to and from the conference.
The Conference on Medical Student Education is geared specifically to medical educators who shape and inspire the next generation to be competent, dedicated, and passionate physicians for the future. This conference also offers a unique blend of educators and students. There are teacher/student presentation teams that often provide an invaluable perspective of family medicine.
