Two OUWB medical students have received scholarships through the highly competitive National Health Service Corps Scholarship Program.

The students are David Howell, M1, and Gabbie Rowlison, M2. Only two other OUWB students have been National Health Service Corps (NHSC) scholars.

A program through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the scholarships call for each student to commit up to four years of post-graduation practice in underserved rural, urban, or tribal communities.

It’s a big commitment but Jeremy Jones, associate director of Financial Services, OUWB, says all three students should thrive because they each “have (the) heart to serve.”

“We have had the pleasure of getting to know and working with Gabrielle, and David,” says Jones. “This opportunity is well-deserved and their future patients will greatly benefit from their passion for serving.”
