Good question. Obviously physicians
(current and prospective) of any kind are included here, but so are technicians,
physician's assistants, nurses, therapists, etc. We know that we're not aware
of every single type of health professional out there, so we can't provide a
comprehensive list of what does and doesn't constitute a "health professional."
In the end, if you think there's some reason to doubt
that we'd consider your educational program to fit into the category of "health
professional," just explain in your essay why you think it is. We're reasonable
and unprejudiced with respect to different career fields, and if you think your
chosen occupation is a health professional, then we'll probably think so, too.
Just make your case, and your application will likely be considered along with
for the scholarship now!
