A Scholarship Fund for Dr. Wallace Miller

The Wallace T. Miller, Sr., M.D., Scholarship Fund has been inaugurated to honor the many personal and professional contributions of that Dr. Miller, as professor of radiology and chief of the department of radiology's chest division, has made to the University of Pennsylvania Medical Center and Health System.

Funded primarily through the generosity of former Radiology residents, the drive to establish this fund was initiated in December 1994 following Dr. Miller's receipt of the Philadelphia Roentgen Ray Society Outstanding Educator Award. The Miller Scholarship Fund will provide tuition assistance on an annual basis to deserving medical students who demonstrate financial need and who exhibit great potential for excellence in the teaching and practice of medicine.

Dr. Miller has been an integral part of the Medical Center and Health System for almost 40 years. Since completing his residency in radiology at HUP in 1960, in his numerous academic and professional appointments with the department of radiology, he has served "with great dedication, offering to all his concern and expertise as an accomplished physician, educator and mentor," one former resident said. "In learning from Wally, you went through several distinct phases. First, you were infected by his enthusiasm; then you were awed by his skill as a radiologist; and finally you were appreciative of his commitment as an educator to each resident."

The Miller Scholarship Fund recognizes Dr. Miller's many outstanding accomplishments while rewarding and encouraging medical students who exemplify the skill and integrity that Dr. Miller consistently has exhibited in his dealings with students, trainees, colleagues and patients. To join in this tribute to Dr. Miller, call the Office of Medical Center Development at 898-9486 for more information.
