The Bako Medical Education Foundation (BMEF), a non-profit organization that seeks to advance diagnostic excellence in the field of podiatry, announced today that it has completed the funding of endowed scholarship commitments to each of four podiatric medical colleges.

BMEF receives funding from BakoDx.

The Barry University School of Podiatric Medicine, Dr. William M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine at Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science, New York College of Podiatric Medicine and Western University of Health Sciences College of Podiatric Medicine each received endowed scholarships of $100,000, which were funded to the schools in annual installments over the past four years.

The scholarship funds provide financial assistance and recognition to top students enrolled and/or accepted at the colleges.

“BMEF sponsors institutions that seek to train the podiatric medical community on innovations and best-practices in medical diagnostics,” said Sue MacCormack, Chair of the Bako Medical Education Foundation. “By funding educational opportunities, BMEF hopes to empower the doctors of tomorrow with the knowledge and diagnostic expertise they will need to improve outcomes for patients. We are humbled to play a part in supporting the education eco-system that will enable today’s medical students to succeed in the future.”
