OCOM to Award More Doctoral Fellowships
For the second consecutive year, the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine has announced it will award fellowships for students entering its Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (DAOM) degree program.
Valued at more than $30,000 apiece, the fellowships are designed to support and encourage doctoral-level education for acupuncture and Oriental medicine, and to identify future leaders in the AOM profession.
Two fellowships will be awarded for the June 2006 class; anyone eligible to apply for admission to the DAOM program also may apply for a fellowship. Students awarded the fellowships will receive a variety of benefits, including full tuition coverage, health insurance coverage under OCOM's health plan, and practice privileges in the college's acupuncture and herbal clinic. In exchange, DAOM fellows will be required to take on part-time clinical, teaching or administrative duties at the college.
