Here at Penn Medicine Becker ENT & Allergy, we recognize the importance of training the next generation of leaders. Since 1990, Dr. Becker has been involved in training medical students, residents, and other doctors in the art and science of medicine and surgery. We continue to meet inspiring young people who are intelligent, charismatic, and who possess a strong desire to change the world for the better. These young men and women should be encouraged in their efforts. We at Penn Medicine Becker ENT & Allergy would like to do our part, which is why we have started a scholarship contest with the goal of encouraging the creativity and personal development of the next generation of physicians.
The contest will require that you create a 2-3 minute video in which you explain your path to medicine. We want to hear what motivates you, and what you have done already to help guide society in a positive direction. Those men and women who have left other careers to return to school to become doctors are encouraged to apply. This is an opportunity for you to express your vision of the future. We know that you are inspired by your dreams and ideas, now is your chance to inspire us! The winner of this contest will receive a $1,000.00 scholarship. We want to help you get the education that will transform your vision into reality.
Students who are currently enrolled in a pre-medical college curriculum or a post-baccalaureate pre-medical program are encouraged to submit their video application.
We want to hear about what makes you unique, so express your genuine personality. Tell us what sets you apart from the rest. Why are you the best candidate?
