Daniel Peters, 2017 Society of 1906 Scholarship Recipient
Daniel Peters is well into his fourth year of medical school at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine in Columbia, SC. He has just finished his acting internship in internal medicine. He has a budding interest in hematology & oncology but knows that he will be happy anywhere within the field of internal medicine. He is now in the process of applying for internal medicine residency programs that will provide him with excellent mentorship for advancing his leadership and research abilities.
With the help of the Society of 1906 scholarship, Daniel was able to finish his third year with confidence and strength. He was nominated to AOA shortly after receiving the scholarship. He earned high marks in his clinical rotations, while continuing to assist with the Healthy Strides 5K & Health Fair, an event he piloted during his second year. He will again help with the 2019 event, which will continue to provide learning opportunities for medical students and community members alike.
Daniel continues to be grateful for the support that the Southern Medical Association provides for medical students and hopes to one day be a part of this wonderful tradition of giving.
