The Christine A Geehrer Inspiration in Medicine (CAGIM) - UCSF Scholarship

The Christine A Geehrer Inspiration in Medicine Award (CAGIM) provides a scholarship of $26,200 each year to one deserving individual enrolled in the University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine.

Our volunteer board members for the Award have committed to raise funds in charitable contributions to provide this extraordinary educational scholarship each year. This Award is particularly exceptional because all organizational expenses are donated so that every dollar contributed by donors goes directly to the medical scholarship.

Christine A Geehrer died recently from a rapidly progressive form of lung cancer that strikes non-smokers. Despite the tragic outcome of her illness, her family and friends were incredibly grateful for the compassionate and skillful care she received at UCSF. Every year, we seek students who are not only committed to being the type of physician who cared for Christine but who is also passionate in taking on challenges and living life fully!
