Student Doctors and Alumnus Named as Denver Osteopathic Foundation Scholarship and Award Recipients

Four student doctors and one graduate at Rocky Vista University College of Osteopathic Medicine (RVUCOM) received recognition by the Denver Osteopathic Foundation (DOF), in the form of scholarships and an award.

Beau Condie, DO ’20, was named Volunteer of the Year by the DOF.

Every year, the Denver Osteopathic Foundation (DOF) raises scholarship funds for eligible and deserving students committed to osteopathic medicine. Due to the many generous contributions in the past year, the DOF has awarded scholarships to the following four student doctors from RVU: Andrew Black, OMS II; Emily Gudvangen-Sherwood, OMS II; Jessica McArthur, OMS II; and Tess Schultz, OMS II.

Each student was profiled by the DOF about their future goals as osteopathic physicians. Upon graduating, SD Black plans on providing services to patients in rural areas, while SD McArthur is committed to serving underserved communities in Denver. For the Colorado natives, SDs Gudvangen-Sherwood and Schultz are interested in women’s health and pediatric primary care, respectively. The full profiles can be viewed on the DOF’s website here.

Recent RVUCOM graduate Beau Condie, DO ‘20, was the recipient of the Volunteer of the Year Award, given to individuals who demonstrate excellence in serving their communities. After graduating last week with RVUCOM’s Class of 2020, Dr. Condie will continue his training at the Clarkson Family Medicine Residency Program in Omaha, Nebraska, and is excited to become involved in his new community.
