The medical school funds a variety of awards to support your professional development and recognize your accomplishments.
The Patrick Lee Foundation is a private, family foundation committed to achieving immediate and measurable impact in the areas of education and mental health. Working with the University at Buffalo Department of Psychiatry, it has funded a number of important initiatives.
The Patrick Lee Scholarship is for third- and fourth-year medical students from the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at the University at Buffalo who are interested in pursuing careers in psychiatry. Students must be from one of the eight counties of Western New York, and will commit to practicing in Western New York for five years after their training. Up to three scholars from each year will be selected to receive a scholarship for $32,000 per year.
Interested medical students should submit their CV and an essay describing why they are pursuing psychiatry and their commitment to practicing in Western New York to the psychiatry assistant to chair.
Please contact the director of medical student education or the residency program director with any questions.
