Global Health Elective Funders Information:

  • Ewens WIcare Program Scholarship: The WIcare Fund, established in 2008 supports unrestricted financial awards to fourth year MCW medical students, to assist in student-directed, short term educational and clinical programs in other countries, primarily in underserved, impoverished areas of the world. Support is also provided for culturally respectful exchanges and collaborations between MCW and international partners.
  • St. Joseph’s Hospital Professional Emergency Services, Inc. (PES) Fund Award: The St. Joseph’s Hospital Fund, established in the 1970's is maintained by St. Joseph’s Hospital medical staff. The fund supports the board's belief that international study broadens a medical student's horizon and education. Students recognize the vast discrepancies in care provided in other countries and are encouraged to help make changes in the future.
  • Dr. Elaine Kohler Global Health Elective Scholarship: The scholarship pays tribute to the local and global health work of Dr. Elaine Kohler, a MCW alumnus (Pediatrics Fellowship 1968) and former Associate Professor of Pediatrics (1968-1981). This scholarship provides support for students, residents and fellows who seek to recognize Dr. Kohler’s selfless commitment to helping others and legacy long after her untimely death in 1981.
