Apply Now for ApolloMD’s 2024 Emergency Medicine Scholarship

Applications are now being accepted for ApolloMD’s 2024 Emergency Medicine Scholarship for Residents.

Now in its seventh year, the scholarship supports medical residents pursuing a career in emergency medicine. It reflects ApolloMD’s commitment to supporting resident physicians eager to pursue their passion for emergency medicine and high-quality, patient-centered health care. The scholarship is specifically designed to assist the recipient with covering various expenses related to their medical education.

“Out of all the things I could have done in life, I was given an opportunity to be part of an organization that serves and cares for others,” says Yogin Patel, MD, MBA, FACEP, ApolloMD’s Chief Executive Officer. “Our entire team is dedicated to supporting individuals with a passion for emergency medicine, and we proudly offer this scholarship to assist deserving residents devoted to caring for others.”

Investing in the future of health care

The application process opens on Friday, March 15, in conjunction with 2024’s Match Day. On Match Day, 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.

Bilal Shaukat, DO, ApolloMD’s 2023 scholarship winner, grew up in Queens, NY, and completed his undergraduate studies at Queens College, graduating in 2021. He currently serves as Chief Resident at Maimonides Medical Center and will graduate later this year. He compares emergency medicine to “a place where each day presents a whole new array of puzzles, where you’re always on your toes, never quite sure what the next moment will bring.”  Dr. Shaukat’s areas of medical interest include sports medicine and administration.
