INVESTING IN THE NEXT GENERATION

“Today’s medical students are passionate and committed, just as I was 35 years ago. Costs have skyrocketed, and debt limits career choices. That’s why I’m stepping up to donate to the OMA Medical Scholarship Fund: I want to help the next generation of doctors succeed in their careers of choice.”

Support Oregon’s Exceptional Medical Students
From four nationally recognized medical programs, Oregon graduates a growing number of highly-qualified physicians and physician assistants each year.
For today’s medical students, the future looks different. Students have not changed, times have changed.
The rising costs of medical school education mean the majority of students are graduating with crushing debt. All too often, debt becomes the deciding factor in selecting a medical specialty and practice location.
Passion and competencies – not debt – should be the deciding factor in a graduate’s career choice.
