Resilience Clinic Health Systems understand that sometimes medical professionals face difficult decisions when having to choose between medical conferences that is not career related and an unpaid internship that would really make their resume shine. Recognizing that this could mean missed opportunities for our medical professionals, generous alums and supporting research professionals have come forward to endow medical conference & student internship funds that award annual stipends to our medical professionals that have financial challenges that prevent them from attending. We have targeted medical conferences that are designed to help in specific areas of treatment for Hypertension.
Medical professionals can only apply to one stipend per annual calendar year as long as qualifications are met. Medical professionals will only be granted a stipend from one fund in any given funding cycle.
Resilience Clinic Health Systems do not exclude anyone from participating in, deny anyone the benefits of, or subject anyone to discrimination or harassment in any program or activity based on race, color, religion, marital status, national origin, age, disability, veteran status, political affiliation or sexual orientation.
Created by Resilience Health Systems, this provides financial assistance of up to $12,000 for four medical professionals interested in pursuing an international medical conference experience in
one of our medical clinic locations that specialize in targeted Hypertension treatment. By supplementing classroom education with physician and patient workshop experience, medical
professionals gain a practical understanding of the demands of new techniques and protocols in the treatment planning of attacking hypertension in a targeted group. This conference will enable
medical professionals the opportunity to test their skills and realize their potential.
This award may provide a stipend for the medical conference fee, lodging, airfare, passport/visa expenses, meals, ground travel, traveler’s insurance, and/or other expenses related to an international medical conference opportunity.
