Champions for Health has forged connections to support the community’s future physicians through scholarships, mentorship and legislative advocacy training.
Medical School Scholarships
Each year, scholarships are awarded to incoming/first year University of California San Diego School of Medicine students whose personal beliefs, actions and community service align with our mission. Scholarships are also awarded to first-year residents hoping to serve the medically underserved in our community. For more information, contact UC San Diego School of Medicine or Adama Dyoniziak, Executive Director.
Mentorship and Legislative Advocacy Training
We build professional connections between experienced physicians and medical students to foster valuable educational experiences, insight and inspiration. Understanding the legislative process which governs the practice of medicine at a state and federal level prepares the physicians of tomorrow. In partnership with UC San Diego School of Medicine coursework, Champions for Health supports the legislative training activities by sponsoring trips to Sacramento for a first-hand view of how the governmental process works.
