CALL FOR NOMINATION:
The John P. McGovern Student Awards in Oslerian Medicine

The McGovern Academy of Oslerian Medicine is pleased to announce the John P. McGovern Student Awards in Oslerian Medicine.  These awards provide monetary support for the education of medical students whose performance and conduct exemplify those ideals of medical practice as promulgated by Sir William Osler. The fundamental principles of Oslerian medicine include:
• Compassionate, personalized medical care that emphasizes the doctor/patient relationship
• Incorporation of a sound scientific basis for optimal patient care
• Professional behavior at all times

The students that are given the honor of this award are called “Osler Student Scholars.”  The expectations of the Osler Student Scholars are to:
• Learn about the values and principles that governed the professional lives of John P. McGovern and Sir William Osler.
• Be active in the community of Osler Student Scholars and participate in projects of others or your own.
• Serve as a role model for your Osler Student Society and foster learning for yourself and others about Oslerian principles and incorporate those ideals into your education and practice.
• Encourage reflection on humanities and the importance of science as a foundation for the practice of medicine.
• Attend monthly meetings of the John P. McGovern Academy of Oslerian Medicine and other meetings of the Osler Student Scholars.
• Attend, and consider presenting at, the annual American Osler Society meeting and bimonthly Osler Club meetings.

Each award will be for $10,000 per year.  In 2018, awards will be presented to six (6) students: two (2) rising sophomores and four (4) entering the second, third, or fourth years who are in good academic standing in the UTMB School of Medicine (SOM).

A medical student who becomes an Osler Student Scholar as a sophomore will receive funding for three (3) consecutive years, a medical student who becomes an Osler Student Scholar as a junior will receive funding for two (2) consecutive years, and a medical student who becomes an Osler Student Scholar as a senior will receive funding for one (1) year.

Medical students who are enrolled in dual degree programs are also eligible to become an Osler Student Scholar.  A student enrolled in a dual degree program who becomes an Osler Student Scholar as a sophomore medical student will receive funding for only three (3) consecutive years without regard to which UTMB school the student is enrolled. A student enrolled in a dual degree program who becomes an Osler Student Scholar as a junior medical student will receive funding for only two (2) consecutive years without regard to which UTMB school the student is enrolled. A student enrolled in a dual degree program who becomes an Osler Student Scholar as a senior student will receive funding for only one year.

Faculty who have worked with medical students as small group facilitators or preceptors in clinical settings, or mentors in the Osler Student Societies or other organizations, are especially encouraged to recommend this opportunity to worthy students. 

Interested students may download an application by logging on to: http://www.utmb.edu/osler/Awards/StudentAward.  The applicant must also submit letters of recommendation from one of his or her POM faculty members, from another member of the SOM faculty, and from a medical student well acquainted with the applicant.  An optional fourth letter of recommendation may be submitted by any other person who knows the applicant well.  (Current Osler Scholars are excluded from writing letters of recommendation for nominees unless the faculty is the student’s sole POM facilitator.)

Applications and letters of recommendation may be submitted in hard copy to: UTMB-McGovern Academy, 301 University Blvd., Galveston, TX  77555-0162, or electronically to the McGovern Academy (mcacadem@utmb.edu).  The completed application and all letters of recommendation must be received no later than 5:00 p.m. on Friday, January 19, 2018.  For answers to questions about the application, please call the McGovern Academy office at (409) 747-9680 or by email at mcacadem@utmb.edu.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Please be advised: This is an ‘award’ not a ‘scholarship.’  Student Awards in Oslerian Medicine are non-academic prizes and recipients receive a personal check in the amount of $10,000.  Scholarships, on the other hand, are managed through Enrollment Services, take the form of educational financial aid and payments are trackable through MyStar.  This designation was made to help students remain eligible for the full amount of federal loans allowed for medical students.

Also, this is reportable income for a US student/Resident Alien student and taxable according to your respective filing status.  For further reporting requirements, please consult a tax professional.
