The fund supports students in good standing who have completed at least their first year of medical school and plan to participate in a global health care experience abroad.
The Glasauer Externship Fund is a clinically-based program fund donated by Franz E. Glasauer, MD, and Elizabeth Glasauer.
The fund facilitates overseas experiences for medical students and residents by giving them opportunities to provide direct patient care through experiences such as 4th year global health electives or research efforts that benefit international health care markets — particularly in developing countries or international medically underserved regions.
Consideration will also be made for students who choose clinical experiences that serve refugee populations in Western New York.
A maximum of $3,500 will be granted to students traveling to Africa, Asia, or South Pacific. A maximum of $1,500 will be granted to students traveling to Latin America or the Caribbean.
