The list of Branden Engorn’s service to his class and to his school is a long one that includes his presidency of the Medical Student Government Association, Admissions Committee member and third-year clerkship group leader. His commitment to leadership extends beyond the medical campus through community service and even to lobbying city and state officials on health concerns. On top of all this, Engorn ranks in the top of his class.
His four-year record of remarkable accomplishments was recently recognized by the Joseph Collins Foundation. Established by the late Collins to assist “ambitious and determined” students in their study of medicine, the foundation selected just four students in the nation for its Beverly Chaney Award, which carries a cash prize of $10,000.
