OSU Health Sciences Student to Receive Prestigious Scholarship


BROOK CLOUD



First year medical student Brook Cloud has been selected as a recipient of The William K. Warren Foundation-Saint Francis Health System OSU School of Medicine Scholarship. Cloud is a dual D.O./Ph.D. student at Oklahoma State University Center for Health Sciences in Tulsa (OSU-CHS).

After earning her undergraduate degree at Oklahoma State University and working in childcare at the Stillwater YMCA, Cloud kept pursuing her passion for pediatric medicine by taking a position in the Saint Francis Pediatric Emergency Center. These experiences led her to realize that working with kids would be the path she would take for her future career, she says.

“I have come to understand that working in a health care setting with children is simply a different world,” Cloud says. “Children smile even at their weakest, and it is a joy in medicine I would not want to miss.”

As a Broken Arrow native, the decision for Cloud to return to Tulsa and to work for Saint Francis was not difficult. She plans to pursue her love of pediatrics after completing her dual degree and hopes to provide quality medical care for Tulsa and the surrounding areas after focusing her research on pediatric development.

“I’m grateful to have the opportunity to study medicine at the OSU College of Osteopathic Medicine and even more grateful to receive this incredible scholarship from The William K. Warren Foundation and from Saint Francis Health System.”

This scholarship, generously funded by The William K. Warren Foundation and Saint Francis Health Systems, is awarded to full-time OSU-CHS medical students who have expressed an interest in practicing primary care medicine in Oklahoma, especially in the Tulsa area. Cloud will receive a $30,000 scholarship award.
