Friedman Award for Scholars in Health
The Friedman Award for Scholars in Health is named after Constance Livingstone-Friedman and Sydney Friedman, the first two faculty members in the UBC Faculty of Medicine. Drs. Constance and Sydney Friedman believed that a full, well-rounded education requires students to learn from different perspectives and from different cultures. The goal of the Friedman Award is to provide funding to graduate students or medical residents so that they can pursue a learning opportunity to further their career or to bring new perspectives to the education they have already received.
