GENERAL SCHOLARSHIPS DR. MICHAEL O’MALLEY MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP The year 2018 marks the twenty-fourth time that the Texas Medical Association Young Physician Section will award its rural science scholarship. This $1,000 award is given to a rural Texas high school senior who excels in science, for use toward continuing his or her education in the field of medicine. In 2007, the YPS Rural Scholarship was transformed into a memorial scholarship for Michael O’Malley, MD. Dr. O’Malley, a recipient of a similar scholarship himself, was an internal medicine physician in Galveston and past chair of the TMA Young Physician Section. Tragically, Dr. O’Malley died from cardiac arrest in his home at the age of 43 and left a wife and two young children. In his memory, the young physicians’ are continuing the tradition of helping rural high school seniors pursue a degree in the field of medicine.
All outstanding rural high school seniors interested in pursuing their education and becoming a physician are invited to apply for this award.
