Northeast Ohio Medical Students Receive AMEF Scholarships; Funds are Raised through the AMEF’s Annual Golf Outing

Seven Northeast Ohio medical students have received scholarships from the Academy of Medicine Education Foundation (AMEF) for the 2017-18 school year to help ease the burden of student loans.

The AMEF Board of Directors reviews new applications each year and chooses students based on a number of criteria. Applicants are third- or fourth-year medical students who are, or were, residents of Cuyahoga, Ashtabula, Geauga, Lake, Lorain, Portage or Summit counties, and who have demonstrated an interest in being involved in organized medicine and community activities. They must also possess leadership skills and demonstrate academic achievement.

This year’s awardees are:

  • Carl Allamby, Northeast Ohio Medical University
  • Stephen McNulty, Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine
  • Pooja Rambhia, Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine
  • Jessica Robertson, Northeast Ohio Medical University
  • Akshay Sharma, Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine
  • Alexander Ulintz, Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine of CWRU
  • Vanessa Van Doren, Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine

Scholarship funds are primarily raised through the AMEF’s annual golf outing. This year’s outing will be held at the Chagrin Valley Country Club on Monday, August 7. Those who are interested in participating in or providing sponsorship for the event can call the AMCNO offices at (216) 520-1000 for more information.

The AMEF also provides funds for various events and educational seminars throughout the year, including the upcoming SCOPE (Safe and Competent Opioid Prescribing Education) of Pain training, which is being provided for in partnership with MetroHealth Medical Center.
