Medical students receive Mazzuchi Scholarship

MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) – Six medical students from the Michigan State University College of Human Medicine UP campus have been named Mazzuchi Scholarship recipients: Amanda Ziminski, Alexander Stamm, Oliva Wiese, David Klemet, Galloway Thurston and Kyle Burton.

Criteria for receiving the Mazzuchi Scholarship include the student’s interest in practicing at UP, financial needs, and specific interests in one of these specialties: emergency medicine, family medicine, internal medicine, general surgery, hospital medicine, obstetrics/gynecology, pediatrics, or Psychiatry.

“Our goal is to educate and educate our future rural physicians,” said Susan Tincknell, student programs administrator for the Upper Peninsula Clinical campus. “This scholarship is an excellent way to support students who have expressed an interest in rural practice in the subject areas that we desperately need.”

The scholarship fund, which began providing financial assistance to medical students in 1983, was renamed the Mazzuchi Scholarship in 2006 in honor of Dr. Daniel Mazzuchi, a local retired doctor who has served in many capacities in medical education and public health.
