American Medical Education Research

Today's medical students and residents face greater financial pressures than ever before. The AMA Foundation provides financial assistance through scholarships, grants and awards to deserving medical students and residents across the nation.

Learn about one of these deserving scholarship recipients, Jared C. Bentley, MD, and his road to medical school. He is currently a resident in orthopaedic surgery at Mount Carmel Health System in Columbus, Ohio. In addition to his residency, Dr. Bentley tutors pre-med students at his alma mater, Shawnee State University, and helps them with the medical school application process.


Research grants

The AMA Foundation is dedicated to supporting the medical research of students and residents, but funding for research projects is scarce, so the AMA Foundation provides assistance to further medical discoveries in a wide range of categories.

"Undoubtedly, without this scholarship I would not have been able to continue my summer session as a rising M4 at the University of Illinois College of Medicine. The tremendously inspiring work of the AMA Foundation in seeking out donors, who are in my perspective-true heroes, gives me hope amidst daunting odds. Completion of medical school definitely looks brighter now and I have you all to thank for being such a ray of sunshine."

"After hearing the plights of the medical students both at the AMA meeting and at home, we decided we could have a greater impact by more rapidly expanding our donations through a larger fund, such as the Ohio Honor Fund. Our foundation gift represents our commitment to the future of medicine. The AMA Foundation unites all physicians on a national level, showing our shared support and compassion."
