From personal experience, Dr. Erik Goluboff is aware of the difficulties that can arise when pursuing a career in medicine. In addition to the long study period, there are also financial limitations. Many students have suffered because of the escalating cost of education. Many people are compelled to give up on pursuing their aspirations, even when some choose to work part-time to pay for their studies. Dr. Goluboff is providing a scholarship to lessen the financial load of one eligible student because of this. He wants to support a student who is passionate about medicine by offering his scholarship. He also wants to draw attention to the difficulties that students have when trying to pursue a profession in medicine. He also believes that the scholarship would provide awareness to generate more opportunities to students with access to financial aid.
