If we’ve piqued your interest, then read on to learn the details of this fantastic opportunity!
Who is LocumJobsOnline.com?
Before we get into the nitty-gritty, let’s discuss the basics.
LocumJobsOnline.com is a job board that connects physicians and advanced practice healthcare practitioners with health care staffing assignments across the United States.
These traveling physicians – otherwise known as locum tenens – help fulfill healthcare staffing needs in primary care facilities, family medicine, hospitals, health centers, and outpatient facilities.
No matter where a locum tenens is looking to travel, we have thousands of opportunities for them to choose.
But that’s not all!
LocumJobsOnline.com also has a ton of great resources to assist locum tenens in their career.
Besides our resources tab, we have a blog for physicians full of information for you to explore, ranging from medical schools and academic medicine to addressing student loan concerns and on-the-job health care tips.
What’s being awarded to students in medical schools?
This scholarship program will provide financial support for medical students who attend medical school and practice medicine.
Attending medical school is hard enough without having to worry about how much money it costs to attend.
We hope the financial assistance from our scholarships will lighten your load a bit and allow you to focus on your medical education.
The world needs med students now more than ever!
You have probably seen first-hand that the demand for doctors, especially locum tenens, has skyrocketed in recent years.
That’s why we are offering this scholarship to any pre-med or medical student in a four-year college that qualifies, no matter what year of medical school you’re in!
Two annual medical school scholarships
Every year, many physicians enter into their hard-earned retirement and the demand for fresh new faces increases.
We hope that this scholarship funding will encourage and motivate pre-med and medical students to continue their education and help replace retiring physicians.
When is this scholarship awarded?
Our scholarships for medical school are awarded twice during each academic year.
Two outstanding students will be awarded our scholarship each year. One during the fall semester and one during the spring semester.
The scholarship recipients will be notified before our public announcement and the award will be sent in the form of a check directly to your med school’s financial aid office.
