Medical Scholarship Programs
Riverside County Medical Association’s Medical Scholarship Programs, organized under the Riverside County Physicians Memorial Foundation, a 501(c)3 organization, were established to assist students from Riverside County in attending medical school and help residents and early career physicians repay medical education loans. These scholarship programs have enabled many students to attend medical school, with an emphasis on returning to practice medicine in Riverside County to help alleviate the shortage of doctors to care for our citizens. Since 2012, RCMA has awarded $450,000 in scholarships to 130 medical students from Riverside County. In 2019, RCMA launched a Resident & Early-Career Physician Loan Assistance Program with 7 Riverside County physicians currently receiving annual scholarship awards.
