Osteopathic medical education gets ongoing boost from scholarship funding by PhysicianLoans.

COLUMBUS, Ohio, March 28, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- PhysicianLoans – the premier provider of home mortgage loans

for physicians, today announced the company's continued support for medical education and the 2019 Andrew Taylor Still Memorial Scholarship winner Mary Jensen Kracht, OMS III. Through the financial support of PhysicianLoans, a deserving student, or students, is awarded a $1000 scholarship by the Student Osteopathic Medicine Association Foundation, at its spring convention held each year in Washington DC.

Kracht is a third-year osteopathic medical student, and freshman Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM) scholar/fellow, enrolled at Midwestern University Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine (AZCOM) in Glendale, Arizona. The award has given her an opportunity to "share a memorable experience with the medical community about a particular juvenile diabetes patient with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS)." Kracht outlined the patient's unique pathology in the scholarship application and detailed how she adjusted osteopathic treatment goals to manage the patient's chronic pain.

Scholarships provide key motivators to encourage students to learn more about the sciences and broaden their osteopathic medicine skills. PhysicianLoans has been the sole sponsor of the A.T. Sill Memorial Scholarship and has steadily increased its financial support since its initial funding. "The alignment between our scholarship investment and a physician's education has direct impact on students when they graduate. At that time, they'll start searching for their first home and will need a mortgage for doctors that meets their unique financial needs," stated PhysicianLoans President Tal Frank.

Sarah Cottrell-Cumber, the SOMA Foundation's scholarships & grants director for 2018-19, also said, "This scholarship benefits third and fourth-year osteopathic students who are preparing a vision of their own career." This year's award winner has a bold dream for her career, one that will touch patients and medical professionals alike. Kracht stated, "I plan to open a pediatric practice that will be a multi-professional center for child behavior and development where I'll practice OMM and provide effortless access to other medical professionals like occupational therapists, speech pathologists, and child psychologists."
