D.M. Richards Endowed Scholarship
The Medical Student Government Association (MSGA) of TCOM created this scholarship to honor David M. Richards, D.O. upon his retirement for his extraordinary legacy of service. Dr. Richards became TCOM’s Associate Dean for Academic Affairs in 1981 and was named president of the University of North Texas Health Science Center when the Texas Legislature established it in 1993. Under his watch, he helped to establish the Academic Health Science Center, the Public Health, and Physician Assistant Program. The Health Science Center established affiliations with hospitals around the state through Dr. Richards’ vision and initiative, as TCOM took the lead in breaking down both real and perceived barriers between the D.O. and M.D. professions. This scholarship provides for 2nd TCOM students who have demonstrated personal integrity, leadership potential, and their dedication to community service and to their medical school.
