GE Foundation And National Medical Fellowships Announce First Year Results In Its Work To Increase The Primary Care Provider Pipeline

About National Medical Fellowships

National Medical Fellowships, Inc. (NMF) was established in Chicago in 1946 to address the racial barriers that prevented minorities, particularly African Americans, from attending medical school and obtaining residencies. During the 1940’s and 1950’s, the challenge was to address financial obstacles. Over the following decades, as broad social changes swept America, NMF grew in scope by disseminating grants and awards on a national basis. As of 2011, $40 million in scholarship support has been provided to 30,000 students. NMF remains the only nonprofit solely dedicated to changing the face of medicine and increasing the number of health professionals who can provide culturally and linguistically appropriate quality healthcare. NMF has three major programs: need-based scholarships and awards targeting first and second year students; service learning scholarships for more senior students, and information for the public and thought leaders about the critical importance that minority physicians play on improving access to healthcare services for all.
