The Paul Ambrose Scholars Program introduces health professions students to influential public health professionals, with the goal of providing the students with a deep understanding of the complexities and varying perspectives of public health, as well as preparing them to become leaders in addressing public health challenges. The program will bring 40 to 50 students to Washington, DC, to attend a three-day leadership symposium, guiding them in their own implementation of a micro-grant funded, community-based health education project. Applicants must have five years of postsecondary education and be actively involved in one of the following areas of study: dentistry, allopathic medicine, osteopathic medicine, graduate nursing, pharmacy, or graduate physician assistant. The application deadline is February 7, 2011.
The Paul Ambrose Scholars Program is sponsored by the Association for Prevention Teaching and Research and the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. For more information and the application package, visit here.
