This year, Tittle & Perlmuter launched Allen Tittle's Medical Malpractice Awareness Scholarship to provide students with the opportunity to raise awareness about the importance of patient advocacy and medical malpractice in today's healthcare industry.
This scholarship aims to not only raise awareness of the dangers of medical malpractice, but to also provide support for those affected. To learn about different forms of medical malpractice including physician negligence, surgical errors, sepsis, and more, download a free copy of our Medical Malpractice Guide.
To be considered for this scholarship, we asked students to submit an original essay discussing the importance of being a patient advocate in today's health care industry. We also encouraged students to describe a time in which they, or someone they knew, experienced receiving poor medical care and what they learned from that experience.
A) The scholarship is open to any current high school senior, college student or graduate student who is a legal resident of the United States residing in one of the 50 states or the District of Columbia, and who is enrolled in a two- to five year post-secondary institution for the Spring 2021 semester.
B) Employees of Tittle & Perlmuter, their immediate families (parent, child, sibling, and spouse), and persons living in the same households of such individuals (whether related or not), are not eligible to participate in the competition.
C) Candidates for this scholarship should have a minimum GPA of 3.0 or higher and be in good overall academic standing.
A) The candidate must submit a 500- to 600-word essay response to the prompt: Why do you think it's important to be a patient advocate in today's healthcare industry? If applicable, describe a time in which you, or someone you know, received poor medical care and what that experience taught you.
B) The candidate must submit a professional resumé that lists their experience, both professional and academic.
C) The candidate must submit a transcript from their current school. First-year college students, graduate students, or individuals who have recently transferred schools may submit an unofficial transcript from their current school, as well as their most recent official transcript from their prior school. High school students must also submit proof of acceptance to their college or university.
D) The recipient of the Allen Tittle's Medical Malpractice Scholarship will be chosen during the month following the scholarship deadline.
