CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - August 10, 2011) -

The American Medical Association (AMA) Foundation awarded Physicians of Tomorrow Scholarships to eighteen rising fourth-year medical students. Recipients were nominated by their medical schools and chosen based upon their academics, financial status and community involvement. Each student will receive a $10,000 scholarship to defray medical school expenses. The recipients are:

"These medical students represent the very best of the next generation of physicians," said AMA Foundation President Owen Garrick, MD, MBA. "Their academic achievements, public health initiatives and volunteer activities illustrate their commitment to assume leadership roles in the medical community and improve healthcare in the United States."

The AMA Foundation has made it a priority to assist medical students in handling the rising cost of medical education by providing high-impact tuition assistance scholarships. On average, medical students in the U.S. graduate with a debt load of nearly $158,000. A large debt burden may deter many from practicing in underserved areas of the country or practicing primary care medicine.

The AMA Foundation, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt foundation, improves the health of Americans through philanthropic support of quality programs in public health and medical education. Visit www.amafoundation.org to learn more.
