FLORIDA STATE AND ESCAMBIA COUNTY MEDICAL SOCIETY FOUNDATION TO ANNOUNCE GIFT SUPPORTING MEDICAL EDUCATION IN PENSACOLA


On Wednesday the Escambia County Medical Society Foundation will present a major gift to the Florida State University College of Medicine. The gift will establish the Escambia/Santa Rosa County Medical Society Scholarship Endowment Fund in support of medical education in the Pensacola area.

The FSU College of Medicine’s Pensacola Regional Campus is in its 12th year of operation. Third- and fourth-year medical students assigned to the Pensacola campus work in one-on-one apprenticeship style rotations alongside experienced and distinguished physicians throughout Pensacola, including numerous physicians who are members of the Escambia County Medical Society.

The College of Medicine’s unique, community-based approach to medical education supports the college’s mission to focus on producing more primary care physicians. The Escambia County Medical Society Foundation gift is in support of the college’s mission and its effort in the Pensacola area. That effort has helped to produce numerous College of Medicine alumni physicians who now practice in the area.

Participating in the announcement will be members of the Escambia County Medical Society Foundation board, FSU College of Medicine Dean John P. Fogarty and Paul McLeod, dean of the College of Medicine’s Pensacola Regional Campus.
