Kika Otiono wins $15,000 Canadian Medical Association 150th Anniversary Bursary
Writng on Facebook, proud father Prof Nduka Otiono says:
It’s no news that med school is financially challenging. And so, every windfall, especially in this dreary season of the pandemic, is not only a blessing, but goes a long way to reducing post-graduation student loan. How more grateful could one be to the Almighty who has done it again, with this unexpected well-earned Christmas gift Kika has won for herself. Established in 2017 by the Canadian Medical Association Foundation in honour of the CMA’s 150th anniversary, the bursary is awarded to its students enrolled in the Michael G Degroote School of Medicine of McMaster University. The award is given to students who demonstrate the values of medical professionalism, including: honesty and integrity, respect, responsibility and accountability, commitment to self-improvement and collaboration.
Congratulations Kikastic. May His banner continue to cover you!
