School of Medicine Alumni Scholarship
We are appreciative of the continued support from our alumni in many areas, including through gifts to the Alumni Scholarship Endowment. Our country is experiencing a health care provider shortage; this is especially evident in rural Illinois. The majority of our state’s doctors will retire in the next two decades and it takes approximately 12-16 years to produce one doctor. The answer is clear: We need your support to make sure we are sufficiently preparing physicians and health care professionals to meet the demands of our citizens today and tomorrow.
