Tech shine: Radiology school in Georgia’s capital city is offering $26 million in scholarships to graduating medical students and residents.
The school has just announced its plans to award the first $5 million in $1.8 million scholarships, which will go to students who complete the first four years of medical school.
In addition, the school is seeking $2.5 million to help students with the first year of residency, and $1 million to cover tuition.
The scholarships are open to all medical students in Georgia, regardless of their residency, which is currently a five-year program that begins in 2018.
The state of Georgia, with more than 30,000 residents, has one of the highest median salaries in the country.
The median salary for graduates of the state’s medical schools is $86,000.
“This is a fantastic opportunity to get to a position where you have a future, but you don’t have to live in Georgia to do it,” said one of five-time winners of the Georgia Tech Radiology Talent Fund, the first of its kind in the state.
“I feel like I am a good example to my students that I have an opportunity to pursue this opportunity.”
Students in Georgia are required to take one year of medical education before being eligible for scholarships.
“We want to give them a great foundation, so they don’t just fall into this trap of not knowing where they are going to end up,” said Dr. Mike Smith, chair of the school’s medical faculty.
“They can learn a lot from what we are doing, and we can help them learn what we can to help them better themselves.”
Dr. Smith says the program is being funded by the state of Alabama, as well as the Georgia Department of Public Health.
The university has been working with local schools to prepare students for residency, as the number of residents increases in the area.
The program has already attracted more than 100 applicants from around the country and has attracted interest from some of the country’s top medical schools, including Stanford University, Harvard University and Johns Hopkins University.
The Radiology Fellowship is open to students graduating from medical school, but students are not required to complete a residency program.
“It is a great way to make that transition,” Smith said.
“If you are a first-year student and you are going in to a residency, we encourage you to go in, and you can take the fellowship if you like.”
Georgia Tech is also seeking to increase the number, size and diversity of the fellowships.
“As the number grows, we can increase our diversity, which I think is really important for this program,” Smith added.
The award will not cover tuition, but Smith said he expects that the program will be financially viable.
“In order to make sure that we are making the most of the money that we make, we are looking at a lot of different things.
One of the things that we’re looking at is making sure that the fellows who are coming from other parts of the world can be able to attend our medical school,” Smith explained.
He said that the state is also looking at providing financial assistance to other students who are looking to attend medical school outside of Georgia.
Georgia Tech has a strong medical school network in the Atlanta area, and its alumni are among the best in the world.
“A lot of the students that come from Georgia have done their research and their studies at Georgia Tech and they are very successful in their careers.
They can’t be anywhere else, so we want to help our students succeed,” Smith noted.
The University of Georgia is also taking steps to make the fellowship program more inclusive.
“At the moment, we have a small number of students that are underrepresented, but we are going out and recruiting more students to the program, and that will help us grow the number even further,” Smith stated.
