ICIM Med Student Scholarships

$935 of $2,000 goal

Raised by 5 people in 62 months
ICIM would like to offer med students the opportunity to attend our conferences. ICIM is a non-profit 501(c)3 and your donation is tax deductible. We have already funded several students' scholarships through these donations, and hope to offer many more!

William D. Mitchell Scholarships:
for general meeting attendence including lectures, the exhibit hall, and snacks.

Thirty years ago, William D. Mitchell founded the International College of Integrative Medicine. Mitchell was a man who knew the importance of envisioning the future. We, like him, believe that the future of integrative medicine lies with our medical students.

Donn Gaudin Memorial Party Fund:
for students to attend ICIM's social events...

Donn was always the first one on the dance floor, well into his 80's. He loved ICIM parties and enjoyed socializing with young adults. He placed great importance on the informal education provided by dancing, eating, and networking with ICIM member doctors and their peers.

Donn's wife, Carol Petersen, RPh, CCN, created this memorial fund with the recognition that Gala dinners can be pricey, but should be accessible to all.

Scholarship Recipient Feedback:
Over time, this financial aid has made it possible for over fifty students to attend an ICIM meeting. Here is some feedback from students who received the scholarship:

"The growth that I have experienced as a ICIM resident physician has been influenced not only by the speakers at the conferences and workshops, but also by the non-structured interactions with the membership." "“Dan Kohn

"From an in-depth conversation with Dr. Chappell to interacting with like-minded practitioners and fellow students, my commitment to practicing patient-centered, holistic and integrative medicine was deepened." - Jennifer Villwock

"ICIM is such an incredible organization. So much of what I learn is applicable to daily life in the doctor's office. I can't wait for this next conference!" "“Katherine Kasper

"ICIM is a great group with awesome physicians and members, and I look forward to being a part of it for a long time!" - Kristen Kavulich

As a longtime advocate of integrative medicine, I haven't heard about a conference that excites me this much in a long time... The mix of clinical lectures and evidence-based presentations appeals to both my medical-biological curiosity and my desire to learn tangible clinical techniques." "“ Jennifer Lin
