UVMC Medical Student Loan and Scholarship Program Launches

Premier Pulse     September 2022

Upper Valley Medical Center has launched a Medical Student Loan/Scholarship Program funded by the UVMC Parent Board of Directors. The program will serve to help address the shortage of providers in highly needed medical specialties to ensure that adequate care will continue to be available in our community.

Students who are attending or have been accepted and are preparing to attend a fully accredited college to pursue a Doctor of Medicine (MD), Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO), or Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) degree are eligible to apply for a loan of up to $100,000 toward the cost of tuition.

Following successful completion of the program, students are eligible to have the balance of the loan forgiven by practicing a minimum of five years in a needed specialty in Miami County. Preference will be given to students who have a demonstrated connection to Miami County or the surrounding area.

The UVMC Parent Board is providing this program through funds established for initiatives that help serve the health and wellness-related needs of the Miami County area and align with the Premier Health mission of building strong, healthy communities.

Students wishing to apply or learn more may contact Theresa Zornes at Upper Valley Medical Center by calling (937) 440-4504(937) 440-4504 or emailing tmzornes@premierhealth.com
