Wisconsin ME/CFS Assoc. announces Medical Student Scholarship (the Friedman Award) – Encouraging future MDs to learn about Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

  [ 5 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
By Pat Fero, Executive Director • www.ProHealth.com • June 28, 2009


The Wisconsin Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Association (WME/CFSA) is announcing the creation of the Friedman Medical Student Scholarship Award.

The purpose of this scholarship is to encourage medical students to learn about ME, CFS, and similar illnesses. In naming this scholarship, our Association is honoring Kenneth Friedman, PhD, who worked with the New Jersey CFS Association to create an annual scholarship in 2006 (inspired by ME/CFS children's advocate Betty McConnell) - and has successfully spread the idea to other states [the Vermont CFIDS Association will also award a scholarship this year honoring Dr. Friedman]. Dr. Friedman has also been active in other ways in promoting research and scholarship about ME/CFS.

The Friedman Medical Student Award is open to all students who:

• Have completed their first year of medical school in Madison, Wisconsin

• Are enrolled for their second year of medical school,

• And are in good academic standing.

The Friedman Award is not a financial need scholarship.

Students will write an essay answering this year's challenge question about ME/CFS. We hope that the process of writing the essays for this scholarship, and possibly being the winner of it, will contribute to applicants becoming physicians better able to assist and provide compassionate care for patients suffering from ME/ CFS and similar, complex illnesses with no known cures.

The winner of the scholarship shall receive a $3,000 award to be applied toward the tuition of his/her second year of medical education.

Other states can adopt and adapt the same idea because we have a pattern to follow and people to ask about how to follow the process.

If you have any questions regarding the ME/CFS Medical Student Scholarship application - the WME/CFSA - please contact Pat Fero, MEPD, Executive Director of the Wisconsin ME/CFS Association at (608) 834 1001, or (608) 837 9540. Or e-mail the Wisconsin ME/CFS Association at wicfsme@yahoo.com.
