The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) Foundation recently honored three top students in its Family Medicine Leads Emerging Leader Institute with project award scholarships.
The year-long program gives promising family medicine residents and medical students extensive leadership training and mentoring with the intent to prepare each individual for a bright future in their chosen area of the family medicine field, AAFP said in a release.
The three students from the medical program were recognized as the best in their track of study and received $3,000 scholarships to participate in future AAFP or AAFP Foundation events. The winners were Amanda Stisher, Policy & Public Health Leadership; Moazzum Bajwa, Philanthropic & Mission-driven Leadership; and Joshua Wienczkowski, Personal & Practice Leadership.
"I felt like participating in the Family Medicine Leads Emerging Leader Institute was one of the most rewarding experiences of my medical career thus far," Stisher said in the release.
The 2017 class included 30 students from various schools around the country, each of whom received a $1,000 scholarship to attend the program and the National Conference of Family Medicine Residents and Medical Students in July.
