The APAO is pleased to announce the recipient of our 2013 APAO Scholarship
Matthew is currently a student at University of Utah PA Program who is expected to graduate in August 2013. He currently serves as the class president and is described by his program director as a “fine example of a professional PA student”. Matthew has completed rotations in Myeloma, Stem Cell Transplant, Oncology ICU, and Radiation Oncology. He has also volunteered in Free Clinics and has shadowed physicians in pediatric oncology. He is described by his colleague as a mature, clinically oriented professional who is extremely helpful in caring for patients. Upon graduation, Matthew will be working at the Radiation Oncology Department of the Calaway Young Cancer Center at Valley View Hospital in Glenwood Springs, CO. In his essay, Matthew states: “I enjoy the complexity of medicine, the challenge of taking care of patients both physically and emotionally, and the art of finding light in the darkest situations.”
Congratulations to Matthew and to the rest of the scholarship finalists and participants!
