Applications are now being accepted for ApolloMD’s 2023 Emergency Medicine Scholarship for Residents.
Now in its sixth year, the scholarship supports medical residents who are pursuing a career in emergency medicine. It reflects ApolloMD’s commitment to support resident physicians who are eager to pursue their passion for emergency medicine and high-quality, patient-centered health care.
Scholarship funds will help the winner defray the costs of medical education.
“Excellent health care relies on excellent physicians,” says Dr. Michael Dolister, ApolloMD’s CEO. “The entire ApolloMD team is dedicated to supporting resident physicians who have a passion for emergency medicine and its crucial role in our patients’ and the nation’s health.”
Pride, Patient Care, and Passion
Opening of the application process coincides with 2023’s Match Day on Friday, March 17. Match Day is the day when resident physicians find out the results of the National Resident Matching Program, which matches medical students with the medical centers where they will complete the final year of their post-graduate medical residency or fellowship.
Gagandeep Singh, MD, ApolloMD’s 2022 scholarship winner, describes the financial support as essential to his ultrasound fellowship studies and continuing interest in Level 1 Trauma and pediatric emergency care.
Dr. Singh is recognized for taking pride in caring for vulnerable members of his community, understanding each patient as an individual with unique needs, providing emergency care, connecting patients with specialists and community services, and “helping those who truly need it.”
“I love what I do,” says Dr. Singh. “I honestly cannot imagine living my life any other way.”
