USA Medical Student Awarded Travel Grant

Andrew Schneider, a medical student at the University of South Alabama College of Medicine, was recently awarded a 2014 Medical Student Travel Grant to attend a national vascular surgery meeting, as well as Alabama Vascular Society’s Annual meeting.

To be selected for one of the traveling grants is a high honor. The grants are sponsored by the Alabama Vascular society, which provides only two grants each year -- one to a medical student at the University of South Alabama and one to a student at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

Schneider is pursuing a career in vascular surgery. “I became interested during my surgical rotation this past year when I spent two weeks with Dr. O’Gorman and Dr. Maltese,” said Schneider. “I found vascular surgery to be an exciting and diverse field to practice.”

The meetings are something that Schneider is looking forward to. “It gives me the opportunity to network with vascular residency programs throughout the country,” Schneider added. “It’s an opportunity to begin to find which program would be a good fit for me.”
