The Dr. Robert C. Knapp Medical Student Award was established in 2011, and allows medical students to shadow a board certified gynecologic oncologist during their elected session. Priority will be given to Florida medical students. The students receive a stipend of $3,000 and if they present at a recognized society, H.O.W. will contribute an additional $2,000 toward expenses.
"These exceptional students will be exposed to a wide array of gynecologic oncology practice activities and advanced research experience," said Jennifer McGrath, program administrator for H.O.W. "With this award, H.O.W. hopes the students will be inspired to consider a career in gynecologic oncology."
