The Doctor Is In

Dr. James Stelnicki of New Port Richey, Florida, a member of the Podiatric Medical Advisory Council, has established the Stelnicki Scholarship for Excellence in Lower Extremity Vascular Medicine at Barry University's School of Podiatric Medicine.

The scholarship, which is based on Stelnicki’s $100,000 donation, will award one $10,000 scholarship each year to a deserving senior podiatric medical student. BU clinical faculty will select the recipient of the Stelnicki Scholarship based on a submitted research paper from the most qualified candidate. Stelnicki received a doctorate of podiatric medicine from the Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine. He is board certified in podiatric surgery and primary podiatric care by the American Podiatric Medical Specialties Board.
