Congratulations to Patrick Hussey, recipient of the 2015-2016 Margaret V. Lunsford Award. The Lunsford Award is granted to the senior Anesthesia externs with outstanding academic achievement who has demonstrated potential to contribute to the specialty of Anesthesiology. Patrick will receive $5,000 from the University of Iowa Foundation. If he matches in the Department of Anesthesia for residency, he will receive an additional award. The Lunsford Award was established at a bequest from the estate of Dr. Margaret Vanderwilt Lunsford through The University of Iowa Foundation in December 1995. In complete accord with Dr. Lunsford’s wishes, at this time, the principal has been established as an endowment to provide scholarships for medical students entering the field of Anesthesiology. Please congratulate Patrick on his academic achievement and award.
In addition to the Margaret V. Lunsford Award, we are pleased to announce that this year we have worked with the University of Iowa Foundation to establish the Lunsford Scholarship. This is a $1,000 scholarship award that is given to each of our Externs. The scholarship will be applied to the student’s tuition accounts by the Foundation as a $1000 payment in at the beginning of the Spring semester of the 2015-2016 year. We are pleased to offer these scholarships to all of our Senior Med Student Externs, and congratulate them when you see them on their fine work.
