The Florida State University Emergency Medicine Residency Program at Sarasota Memorial Hospital is happy to announce a scholarship program for Under-Represented minorities. Due to the timing, we will be considering applications immediately on a rolling basis with a final deadline of July 15, 2023. Students should plan to rotate anytime between now and January 2024.
Sarasota Memorial Hospital is recognized as one of the top hospitals in the nation, and the program has been constructed to take advantage of the ample and excellent clinical opportunities available. The ED sees over 90,000 patients per year, and we are a trauma center. It is anticipated that the majority of our graduates will seek jobs at similar community hospitals, but we certainly have the ability and expertise to prepare each graduate for fellowship training or a career in academics. We have a diverse group of faculty that is ready to mentor and train students and residents. As a county hospital, Sarasota Memorial is the safety net of the surrounding areas and offers a diverse patient population as well.
We are pleased to sponsor a fourth-year medical student who plans a career in EM and wishes to experience a rotation in our department. Students must self-identify as an under-represented minority (URM) and have an interest in diversity, inclusion, and equity. We will be offering up to 4 scholarships, each $2500 to help defray travel and housing expenses for the month that the student is here on rotation.
Interested students should send their CV, USMLE or COMLEX scores, and a cover letter discussing how they identify as an under-represented minority, what their strengths and weaknesses are, and their interest in the FSU program at Sarasota to Dr. Julio Arrieta at firstname.lastname@example.org.
