Dr. Peter Swedko Memorial Merrymakers Award
Dr. Peter Swedko Memorial Merrymakers Award
Awarded to a graduating student from the Undergraduate Doctor of Medicine (MD) Program at the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry, who has demonstrated academic achievement and who has been extensively involved in medical school extracurricular activities throughout their time at Schulich. Online Nomination Forms can be submitted by students and faculty to the Undergraduate Medical Education Office by March 31. The Progression & Awards Committee will select the recipient each year from the list of nominations. This award was established by a generous gift from the Meds Class of 1996 Alumni, in memory of their classmate, Dr. Peter Swedko (MD '96). Value: 1 at $1,000 Effective Date: 2017-2018 academic year Peter was a young man who knew that being a doctor required more than just knowledge. He lived that belief through teaching in the teen healthy sexuality project, leadership in the Hippocratic Council, and integration of medical informatics in his career as a nephrologist. But most of all, he knew that it was compassion, caring and laughter that made a doctor into a healer. He is best remembered for his active involvement and leadership in the Tachycardia plays, in which he made everyone laugh by playing roles such as Richard Simmons. He regularly encouraged his colleagues to participate in all social and school activities and to realize that life is meant to be lived to its fullest. Sadly, Peter died in 2005 at the age of 33. The hope is that this award will honour medical students who embody the same spirit of involvement as Peter did, to reward those individuals who demonstrate that medical school is much more than just academics, and who thereby help to create a much more rewarding environment for all fellow medical students.
