HARRISBURG, PA — Montgomery County Medical Society (MCMS) awarded a $1,000 scholarship to local medical student Daniel M. Friedman, son of Drs. David and Elizabeth Friedman of Wynnewood, Pa. He attends the Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons, New York.
Friedman said, "I entered medical school with an open mind, conscious that I have only scratched the surface of the field of medicine. Patient care and my exploration of the intersection of medicine, public health, business, and technology will provide me with opportunities to make a difference in the most profound ways imaginable. I am interested in pursuing a joint MD/MBA degree during my time at Columbia, and I aspire to not only help my patients on an individual level, but also to improve their experience with healthcare delivery on a larger scale."
This award is possible, thanks to contributions from the Montgomery County Medical Society members and area physicians. The MCMS mission is to represent and serve all physicians of Montgomery County and their patients in order to preserve the doctor-patient relationship; maintain safe, quality care; advance the practice of medicine; and enhance the role of medicine and health care within the community and across Montgomery County and Pennsylvania.
The Foundation of the Pennsylvania Medical Society administers the fund for MCMS. The Foundation, a nonprofit affiliate of the Pennsylvania Medical Society, sustains the future of medicine in Pennsylvania by providing programs that support medical education, physician health, and excellence in practice.
