Hostetter Student Award

About the award

Established in 2006 through an estate gift from Dr. Philip Hostetter, this award recognizes medical students who have demonstrated and promoted the values of family medicine during their medical school careers.  One student from each of the three KUMC campuses are eligible for this $500 award, maximum three students.

About Dr. Hostetter

Dr. Hostetter was a World War II veteran and family physician from Manhattan, Kansas.  He enjoyed photography and was generous with sharing his photographs with the Academy.  Dr. Hostetter was a loyal member of the KAFP, serving as President in 1975 and a loyal donor to the KAFP-Foundation.  Through his estate, Dr. Hostetter gave a gift to the KAFP-Foundation that ultimately started this award.
