By the end of 2014, the Harris County Medical Society (HCMS) Alliance will have awarded more than $275,000 in scholarships to about 240 medical students attending The University of Texas Medical School at Houston and Baylor College of Medicine. The medical student scholarship program is one of the most important philanthropic activities the HCMS Alliance supports each year.
HCMS Alliance's philanthropic activities and endowment provide annual funding for the scholarship program. Scholarship funds are equally divided between the two medical schools in Harris County. The recipients must be third- or fourth-year medical students in good standing with their respective medical schools.
"In 2013, we were honored to have HCMS Past President Carlos Hamilton, MD, and TMA Alliance Past President Linda Atkins participate in our awards presentations. They were joined by several local physicians as well as local alliance members,” said Carmen Zartorski, HCMS Alliance president.
The HCMS Alliance scholarship program is part of the TMA Special Funds Foundation, which supports loan and scholarship programs throughout Texas.
