3 A t Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science we are embarking on a 5-year, $5 million campaign to increase support for scholarships. Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science is embarking on a 5-year, $5 million campaign to increase support for scholarships. Scholarships transform the student experience and lend critical support to our mission to invest in the educational future of tomorrow s health care leaders. The rising cost of educating health professionals has an impact on both students and patients. The cost of schooling can prevent well-qualified students from enrolling and staying in school. This means that the best and the brightest may not be the health care professionals of the future and that the workforce of the future will not be as diverse as the population it serves. Supporting the Next Century Rosalind Franklin University has had tremendous growth in enrollment over the past five years, and it has expanded its health sciences education to five graduatelevel colleges and schools. Raising additional funds for scholarships will help Rosalind Franklin University to remain competitive with peer institutions, to attract and retain the highest caliber of students, and to maintain a diverse student body. Additionally, accrediting organizations, such as the LCME, look for scholarship support when making accreditation decisions. The University strives to invest in the education of health professionals, both now and in the future, while maintaining a strong financial position. We provide a top-quality education and maintain a reputation for giving back to our community. The University prides itself on teaching medical team members, rather than just the individual through our interprofessional teaching model. Our students have access to some of the best facilities and state-of-the-art training and educational capabilities, including the new Morningstar Interprofessional Education Center, the Education and Evaluation Center, and the Gross Anatomy Laboratory. For the University to maintain this high standard and provide sufficient financial aid to students it requires additional funds. The University s Board of Trustees, President, and Deans are committed to assisting students with scholarships and financial aid to the greatest degree possible. Please join us today with your support.

5 Interprofessionalism is how the real world works. Rosalind Franklin University prepares students to work in teams. harmi Shah Neither the study nor the practice of medicine are solitary endeavors. Charmi Shah has known from day one that she will be part of a medical team that works together to care for its patients. With the goal of providing superior health care and becoming an outstanding doctor, the interprofessional model offered at Rosalind Franklin University s Chicago Medical School was the right choice. Charmi s experiences, not only working in various medical centers and hospitals but also her academic and extracurricular experiences, taught her the importance of teamwork and cooperation for success. Charmi has seen teams in action when she volunteered in an Intensive Care Unit and a pediatric department. She tutored during college and was president of Women in Science and Engineering. After college, Charmi spent two years working on research both at Northwestern University and Baxter. She reflects, Interprofessionalism is how the real world works. Rosalind Franklin University prepares students to work in teams. Charmi was awarded the Clara Rosenstein Kraff Scholarship following her decision to come to the Chicago Medical School and she is extremely thankful. The scholarship gives her the motivation to push herself and constantly strive to do better. Charmi also looks to the future knowing that with this scholarship she will have to take out fewer loans, making it easier to balance her financial obligations, a new career and having a family.

7 Samantha Blum I have faced several obstacles, but my mother set a shining example that any setback can be overcome by exercising one s inner strength. Samantha Blum has faced her share of setbacks and obstacles. She thought they would keep her from achieving her dreams but a scholarship and perseverance opened the door for her. In 2004, Samantha s father died in a tragic car accident. After the accident, her father was given one additional day of life so his family could say goodbye. Four years later, Samantha s mother died after a long and courageous battle with ovarian cancer. A five year prognosis had turned into 10 years. These personal experiences and a life of scientific discovery of how the body works gave Samantha her interest in health care and her dream to become a doctor. But losing both parents seemed to ensure that her dream stayed just that a dream. And Samantha had plenty of inner strength. She graduated from the University of Illinois with a B.S. in biological engineering and spent time doing cancer research. When Samantha was ready to take on medical school, a friend introduced her to Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science and the Chicago Medical School. Throughout her application process, Samantha felt comfortable and saw that students had a voice. She knew that the Chicago Medical School was for her. She was ready to do the work but wasn t sure how she could pay her way. When Samantha found out she was the recipient of the Dr. John J. Sheinin Scholarship, tears filled her eyes and she was speechless. The scholarship opened the door for her to pursue her dreams, and it allows Samantha to focus solely on her education and choose whatever field of medicine she is passionate about without having to worry about how to pay back onerous student loans. Currently, she is thinking about women s health and obstetrics and gynecology. Samantha has always remained positive when faced with adversity, a quality she will carry into her work with patients. My mother lost her husband and her health but continued to exude strength, wanting to be treated as the vibrant woman she was, rather than a sickly patient. Samantha s mother taught her to look beyond the hospital gown and bed and treat patients as equals.
