Shawnee Mission East graduate Andrew Patton is among four University of Kansas School of Medicine — Wichita students to receive the E.P. Donatelle, M.D., Student Scholarship Award this year.
The award is given each year to a varying number of students who ranked highly in the third year Family Medicine Clerkship, and who rank in at least the top half of the medical school class. The award is $1,000 for each student. The award is named in honor of Donatelle, who served as the first chair of the Department of Family and Community Medicine on the Wichita campus from 1979 to 1988.
Patton’s wife Bailey, originally from Overland Park, was among the eight Family Medicine students to receive scholarships this year as well. She was one of two recipients of the Monte Maska, M.D., Student Scholarship.
