MCOM grad Michael Schnaus earns Flannery/Tibbels award

Medical students typically have an interest for surgery as a specialty before they are exposed to surgery in third-year clerkships of medical school. That’s the conclusion of a longitudinal study conducted by Michael J. Schnaus, a graduate of the USF Health Morsani College of Medicine Class of 2014.

The published work, along with several other research projects, is part of the reason Schnaus earned the 2014 Thomas and Elizabeth Flannery/William and Mary Tibbels Scholarly Award, a competitive $1,000 prize given by Michael Flannery, MD, FACP, professor of medicine for the USF Morsani College of Medicine and founder of the scholarship named after his maternal and paternal grandparents.

Schnaus conducted the research as part of his capstone project for the Scholarly Concentrations Program for Biomedical Research.

He was presented with the award by Dr. Flannery at the Morsani College of Medicine Awards Ceremony April 10.
