Medical students receive scholarships to help underserved patients

Michigan State University College of Human Medicine students Sarah Robbins and Rohit Abraham share a passion for helping underserved patients and both recently learned they will receive awards to help them realize that goal.

Robbins, a fourth-year student who will graduate in May, will receive a $120,000 Students to Service Scholarship from the National Health Service Corps for her commitment to work in an underserved community for three years.

Abraham, a third-year student, has been awarded a full-ride Zuckerman Fellowship to attend Harvard’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health for a Master of Public Health with a concentration in Health Policy, a major step toward his ultimate goal of helping large numbers of patients by directing public health policy.

“What I personally hope to do is practice clinical medicine for several years and then transition into a career that also combines public health administration,” Abraham said, a move that would allow him to guide public policy and improve health care for larger numbers of patients.
