SCMS Resident Scholarship and Grant

The Snohomish County Medical Society trustees have created a scholarship/grant for residents in Snohomish county. SCMS will award a scholarship recipient $2,500.00 to go towards a residents community project.

The guidelines for the scholarship and grant are that the resident be in good standing within their program and a SCMS resident member. The essay portion of the scholarship asks each resident “Why they chose to be a physician” and then explain their residency community project. The grant is for $2,500.00 and due March 30, 2020. The recipient will be announced on April 10, 2020. Below are the grant guidelines for the community project each resident must discuss:

Residency Community Project Grant Guidelines

1. Improve community Health Literacy and patient advocacy
2. Increase the use of telemedicine for community medical practices
3. Improve physician participation in the Accountable Communities of Health
4. Address community and health care priority for public health
