Scholarships and Fellowships

Improving health in our communities requires a dedicated workforce of talented physicians and researchers at the forefront of health science.

Today, the students, residents, and fellows of McGovern Medical School are passionate and committed learners. Tomorrow, they are the doctors providing compassionate, patient-centered care. The investigators whose work helps solve the toughest health challenges.

Scholarships and Fellowships

Across our institution, learners of all levels share a commitment to health. With access to resources throughout the Texas Medical Center, our medical students learn how to provide exceptional patient care and develop their skills using the latest medical technology. Through Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center—one of the nation’s top teaching hospitals—our students learn how to diagnose, treat, and prevent even complex diseases.

Our dual degree programs, including MD/MBA and MD/PhD options, further allow talented students to grow their expertise in specialties across health care. Offering training in disciplines from business to public health, these programs give students the skills and techniques needed to break new ground in the health issues that matter most.

We build healthier communities when we commit to the people who will serve, heal, and advocate for them. Scholarships and fellowships provide us with the means to attract the brightest students, many of whom may not be able to nurture their talent without the benefit of financial assistance.

Your support of Many Faces. One Mission. can send a ripple effect through our communities. It makes a difference for our students, who go on to care for patients, help communities, and move health care forward.
