AUSTIN, TX - Subhan Tabba, a fourth-year student at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston McGovern Medical School, has been awarded TMLT’s Scholarship for 2019.
The TMLT Scholarship recognizes Texas medical students who are interested in finding creative and effective ways to enhance patient safety. TMLT awards one $10,000 scholarship in October. Scholarship recipients are chosen based on the student's financial need and a written essay.
“Primum non nocere is a basic tenet that physicians live by, and I appreciate that this scholarship was created to encourage budding physicians to think about this tenet analytically. It is a privilege to care for patients, and I am committed to making their safety a priority in my day-to-day practice,” Tabba said.
Before enrolling in medical school, Tabba earned two undergraduate degrees at The University of Texas at Austin—a Bachelor of Science in Cell and Molecular Biology and a Bachelor of Science in Psychology.
The TMLT Underwriting and Business Development Committee (BDC), made up of TMLT physician policyholders, evaluated the applications and chose the recipient.
For the essay portion, applicants were asked to write risk management considerations for a closed claim study provided by TMLT. The following is the closed claim study followed by Mr. Tabba’s submitted essay.
Mr. Tabba’s winning essay was published in TMLT’s 4th quarter edition of its newsletter, the Reporter. This edition is available online.
The largest medical liability insurance provider in Texas, TMLT serves more than 20,000 health care professionals. Rated A (Excellent) by A.M. Best Company, TMLT is the only medical professional liability insurance provider exclusively endorsed by the Texas Medical Association.
